Sir Christopher Lee who played Jinnah in his 1998 biopic has died aged 93. The legendary actor, who also appeared in Lord of the Rings, passed away last week at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Earlier in an interview with a local radio show Christopher described Jinnah as an ‘important film’ and cited a number of different reasons for doing it. The actor who was knighted in 2009 for his services to drama and charity had once said about Jinnah, “For me as an actor, it is certainly the most important role I have ever played, because the responsibility on my shoulders was immense. I went to the country he founded. I was there for 10 weeks playing the leader of the nation, the creator of the nation in the country he created in front of his own people,” said Christopher. Sir Christopher had been treated at the hospital for respiratory problems and heart failure in the last three weeks.
