Christopher Lee Still Denying Rumors
Nov 04, 2002
Christopher Lee’s official site is still debunking the Dumbledore myth, with some words from Lee himself.
Mr Lee speaking from Vienna said that he is upset at being linked with the role so soon after Harris death.
He says people are congratulating him in the street for getting the role as Professor Albus Dumbledore.
But he says he hasn’t been approached by Warner Bros and doesn’t know where the rumors have come from.
“I wasn’t approached about replacing Richard and it also wasn’t true that the role in the first film only went to Richard after I turned it down. I was never asked, and I don’t know where these rumors have come from, but I find it all a bit distasteful so soon after his death.
“The only thing that is sure is that I will be in both of the next two Lord of the Rings movies, and I am considering three of four other interesting roles.”
