Count Dooku, Count Dracula Saruman actor has died

Actor Christopher Lee has died at the age of 93

Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee is perhaps the only actor of his generation to have starred in so many films (about 281 movies). Although most notable for personifying bloodsucking vampire, Dracula, on screen, he has portrayed other varied characters on screen, most of which were villains, whether it be Francisco Scaramanga in the James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), or Count Dooku in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002), or as the title monster in the Hammer Horror film, The Mummy (1959)

Lee played the role “Dracula” in a number of movies throughout the 1950s, 1960s and into the early 1970s.

He played Saruman in five Lord of the Ring and Hobbit movies.
