Director Tim Burton has paid tribute to the "true legend" that is late actor Christopher Lee, who has died at the age of 93.
Burton, who worked with Lee on five films including Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, said the actor had been an "enormous inspiration".
Christopher has been an enormous inspiration to me my entire life. I had the honour and pleasure to work with him on five films.
He was the last of his kind - a true legend - who I'm fortunate to have called a friend. He will continue to inspire me and I'm sure countless others for generations to come.
