Johnny Depp doesn’t honor just anyone. Depp made a very special appearance at the London Film Festival this past Saturday to award horror icon, Christopher Lee the British Film Institute Fellowship. Depp, a semi-horror icon himself, calls Lee, 91, a “national treasure” and a “genuine artist”. Depp noted that it had been “a childhood dream come true” to work with Lee; they appeared together in Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, Dark Shadows and Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. For those who don’t know, Christopher Lee has starred in over 250 movies including the role of Dracula in a series of Hammer Films thriller. Lee is also well known for his role as the Bond villain Scaramanga in The Man With The Golden Gun and Saruman in The Lord of the Rings. Lee can be seen next in Night Train To Lisbon, The Girl From Nagasaki and he returns has Saruman in the final two Hobbit movies. The London Film Festival also award Pawl Pawlikowski’s Ida Best Picture, Anthony Chen’s Ilo Ilo the First Feature award and Paul Julien Robert’s My Fathers, My Mother and Me won the documentary award.
