Legendary actor Christopher Lee is now a Sir - he was officially knighted by British royal Prince Charles on Friday. The 87-year-old star, famed for his role as Count Dracula in a string of Hammer horror movies, was honoured by the Prince of Wales for his services to drama and charity.

Lee is one of the U.K.'s most prolific actors with roles in 1973's The Wicker Man, 1974 Bond movie The Man With The Golden Gun, and more recently appearing in the new Star Wars films and the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. He also starred in the 1978 Epic  Caravans opposite Behrouz Vossoughi and Anthony Quinn Shot in Iran prior to the Revolution.

Rocker Joe Brown was also presented with an MBE (Member of the British Empire) for his contribution to music during the ceremony in London.

I think he deserved at least a sir or may be a lord even since I am in a generous mood. He is a master of horror. I think someone else whom I really admired who deserve to be a sir or lord is vincent price. I have enjoyed the works of these two actors since I remember. For some strange reason, when I was very young I thought christopher lee was an Iranian!
