How did you first get interested in Gothic books?

Yes, great cheekbones, but Christopher Lee just has that something about him.

He did almost all his own Fencing, is fluent in at least 5 languages, and he is a Knight of Malta (St John of Jerusalem)

I looked it up and the criteria are:

Admission to the order is subject to numerous conditions, ancient nobility, corresponding social position, and entrance fee of 900 marks, a probation of at least four years as a knight of honor before admission of the accolade which confers the title of Knight of Justice. Their first obligation is to collect contributions for the support of hospitals. Moreover, in times of war, since 1870, the order has been devoted to ambulance service on the field of battle.

I think at this point he has starred in more movies than any other actor, 261 and counting, and over 100 documentaries. And long may it continue!

He is also a trained singer!! and was related distantly to Ian Fleming, who did the original James Bond books.

So he is the complete Renaissance man, as well as the perfect Gothic hero/villain.

Cushing was great, but Lee is in a class by himself. Oh, and Lee and Vincent Price were born on the same day, May 27, 1922, and Peter Cushing one day later. Small world.

Lee as Dracula, great, and who could ever forget his Frankenstein or Mummy. Classic!
