84th post - Sir Christopher Lee!

Oh my... today was a sad day... Sir Christopher Lee has passed away. He was the only cast member of "the Lord of the Rings" that had actually met J.R.R.Tolkien. It is said that Tolkien wanted him to play the role of Gandalf if, someday, "the Lord of the Rings" went to the big screen. All that apart, what a great Man! Amazing actor, and amazing person... a true inspiration both in his job and in his intellect. Christopher Lee was, is, and always will be a Legend!!

Below are the results of my research: Before the Nazgul arrive at weathertop. Weathertop: the set. Weathertop: the set. When the Fellowship arrive at Amon Hen (Western Border of Anduin) Even in Boromir's death...

Really nice to know a little more about the making of the films. ********************************************************************************** So, lets proceed to the models...
