Christopher Lee on Saruman - Statement on Official Fan Club


Christopher Lee reads The Lord of the Rings every year...
On the Official Christopher Lee Fan Club website, the man behind the cinematic face of Saruman posted the following comment on his work in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings:

"...Then, to complete the list, I recently finished playing Saruman the White, the Wizard in 'LORD OF THE RINGS'. It has always been a dream of mine to bring to the screen the marvels of this wonderful work and this has allowed me to take part in a production which could well be the pinnacle of my acting career. I can't talk about it more than that, so you'll have to wait and see! "

When we had the chance to speak with Karl Urban (Eomer) and Brad Dourif (Grima Wormtongue) at Dragon*Con earlier this year, they eagerly conveyed the fact that Christopher Lee is a HUGE Tolkien fan--his mere presence on the set commanded respect for The Lord of the Rings, for he wouldn't allow anything less than an honest vision be brought to the screen. I completely believe his statement above...

Thanks to Jill M. for the lead!
