Sybil Danning Remembers Christopher Lee…


The beautiful exploitation film icon Sybil Danning shared the screen several times with Christopher Lee. She sent FANGORIA some words about her late friend and colleague…

From Sybil Danning:

“Christopher Lee has died at 93.  Movie legend, horror icon, husband to my friend and Danish model Gitte and my dearest friend with whom I shared 5 movies… Christopher, you will be missed forever. I’m sorry we never got to do that vampire movie or the new werewolf franchise Philippe Mora and I have planned, but we’ll always have our memories.  Here is a photo of Chris as my brother in HOWLING II. I leave it here to memorialize Chris and my strongest on screen moment with him.  In HOWLING II it was our kiss before dying. So today, dear Chris, I send you a goodbye kiss until we meet again in horror heaven!  

Love, Sybil Danning”

Thanks Sybil. Expect more stories and thoughts on Lee from FANGORIA friends and family over the coming days.
