Hollywood actor Johnny Depp presented veteran actor Christopher Lee with a BFI (British Film Institute) Fellowship at the 57th London Film Festival Awards. Lee, 91, was honoured last weekend with the award that recognises his outstanding contribution to film and television, reports contactmusic.com.
