Sir Christopher Lee, who played villain Francisco Scaramanga in the 1973 007 adventure 'The Man With The Golden Gun', has died at the age of 93.

A veteran of cinema, Lee appeared in over 270 big and small screen productions, including the Hammer Horror films, Lord of the Rings and Star Wars franchises.
