Some of Christopher Lee's most famous roles are: Scaramanga (The Man With The Golden Gun 1974) Count Dooku (Star Wars 2002/2005 voiced his own character in Star Wars: Clone Wars 2008) Saruman (Lord Of The Rings 2001-2003; The Hobbit 2012), Captain Rochefort (The Three Musketeers 1973-4) and Dracula (Dracula 1958). Other roles he has played are the title role in Jinnah, about the first prime minister of Pakistan.
Lee was also step cousins to Bond creator Ian Fleming and even starred with pre-007 star Pierce Brosnon in the 1993 espionage film Detonator (A.K.A. Death Train). In 1978, Lee had been offered the role of Dr. Sam Loomis in the classic horror film Halloween, but declined the role because he did not think it worth it to travel all the way to the United States for filming. Fellow Hammer actor Peter Cushing also declined the role for the same reason, and the role of Dr. Loomis eventually went to fellow Bond villain actor Donald Pleasence.
