"I have many photographs of myself with Seve Ballesteros. There is one which is most valuable to me which says in Spanish “To Christopher with a strong embrace”. He was a golfing genius, with whom I played many times. He was also a very dear friend. I shall never forget him."

Christopher Lee

Special Operations Executive

"When people say to me, you know, were you in this? Were you in that? Did you work in this? Did you work in that? I always used to say `Can you keep a secret?` And they would say `Yes, yes` and I would say "So can I."

"I`ve seen many men die right in front of me - so many in fact that I`ve become almost hardened to it.

Otherwise we would never have won."

Peter Cushing

"I don`t want to sound gloomy, but, at some point of your lives, every one of you will notice that you have in your life one person, one friend whom you love and care for very much. That person is so close to you that you are able to share some things only with him. For example, you can call that friend, and from the very first maniacal laugh or some other joke you will know who is at the other end of that line. We used to do that with him so often. And then when that person is gone, there will be nothing like that in your life ever again".

"Acting is like a snowstorm or perhaps a large empty vacuum. I`m not deluded by the fact that I`m getting all these offers for work, I`m very happy about it, but I know also that there is the other side and who knows, next year, they may not offer me anything. You never know. "

— Christopher Lee

The Curse of Frankenstein

"I was asked to play the creature chiefly because of my size and height which had effectively kept me out of many pictures I might have appeared in during the preceding ten years. Most British stars flatly refused to have me anywhere near them in a film, because I was easily the tallest man around."

— Christopher Lee

A life of Metal

"I have been metal all my life, only I did not know about it. The people in this album (Charlemagne) and I, share the same values."

— Christopher Lee
