Christopher Lee, 2005.Degrees Project


I shot Christopher in 2005, 10 years before he died. Not many people know he was in the Guinness Book of Records for the most screen credits for a living actor in 2007. As we walked through the Savoy Hotel, Christopher noticed the sheet music on the walls from Gilbert and Sullivan. Christopher said “Did you know I sing everyday, I was a classically trained Baritone” He then started to break into song of Three Little Maids, The Mikado. He belted it out in the hallway of the Savoy and it was an impressive sight. As we got into the room he insisted on tea and a cigar and as he smoked it I started shooting. When I originally showed him the images he particularly hated the ones of him smoking. Yet a year later he spotted one of the smoking images in an article by the Times. I then received a call from Lady Lee requesting from him copies of the photo, obviously over time he had grown to love it.
