Lee is best known among younger fans for playing characters like Saruman the White throughout the The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Count Dooku in 2005’s Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The actor’s illustrious career in film dates back nearly 70 years but he found his first widespread success in a series of horror films produced by Hammer, most notably as Dracula in 1958 as well as for a lead role in The Curse of Frankenstein the previous year. After finding success in horror films, Lee played opposite Roger Moore as a Bond villain in The Man with the Golden Gun in 1974.
