Guys - found this link on The Miniatures Page (TMP) forums:

Seems that the late Peter Cushing enjoyed painting and playing miniatures.

Would have been fun to see him and Christopher Lee on opposite sides of the battlefield (they were opposite each other in horror movies).

Does anyone else know of famous celebrities that enjoyed wargaming?

Curt Schilling, former MLB pitcher loved Avalon Hill's Squad Leader as a kid and is part owner of the company that makes the later editions of the ASL series.

I only remember reading this when Robin Williams had passed - but he and Jonathan Winters collected military miniatures.

Not sure if either were wargamers though.
