TTT: Lee Talks McKellen, TTT ‘Pick Ups’

February 12, 2002 at 8:16 pm by xoanon  - 

Pallando sends us this bit of information from UK’s Channel 4 website, Christopher Lee has been talking Star Wars: Ep 2 and TTT:

“I’ve just finished Star Wars: Episode II – Attack Of The Clones,” says the actor, who plays Darth Tyranus . “I can’t tell you much, just that I play a disillusioned former Jedi.

“That’s out in May and I’m about to go back to New Zealand to do extra work on The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers.”

Recalling his first scenes on the Tolkein blockbuster trilogy, Lee says: “They were with Ian McKellen (Gandalf). He is one of our greatest actors. I’ve never worked with him before,” he says.

“The first take is always hard but I’ve never worked with a more encouraging, helpful and agreeable actor.

“He was absolutely wonderful, even if he does fancy Ewan McGregor! He was a tremendous help to me.”
