PETA joins in mourning the passing of screen legend Christopher Lee. There was a kind heart behind the on-screen villain, and it was a privilege to work with him on our campaign to end cruel heart-disease experiments on animals and encourage everyone to support charities that don’t hurt and kill animals. He will be missed by all of us.
— PETA President Ingrid Newkirk
