London [UK], November 23 (ANI): Even at the age of 87, legendary actor Christopher Plummer loves his profession and says he will "never retire".

"I love my work. I love what I do. And I'm so sorry for a majority of people who do not like their jobs, and can't wait to retire, which of course, is death. I'll never retire," the 'Beginners' star confessed as reported by

The actor even hopes to "drop dead onstage".

Plummer, who plays Ebenezer Scrooge in the film, recently toured a Charles Dickens exhibit at the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York. Plummer admits that Dickens, especially "A Christmas Carol," was a big part of his upbringing.

On work front, Plummer has also begun shooting scenes for the upcoming Ridley Scott film 'All the Money in the World,' replacing Kevin Spacey as billionaire J. Paul Getty.

Spacey was ousted from the movie in the wake of a series of sexual misconduct allegations.
