    Well where is the word vampire derived from? Unlike Dracula, those are real.

    One time I was 21%.

    Listopher Chree One time that role was played 11 times.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    Q: Why was Dracula such a bad CEO?

    A: Because he refused to meet with stake holders.

    I agree with the Anesthesia for red haired women, I always remind the doctors that my hair is reddish. I was awake during a colonoscopy., I would prefer not to be awake during a procedure.

    I read somewhere there is a disease that causes people to extra sensitive to sunlight and that the vampire legends started because those who had it only came out at night. They were very pale from lack of sunlight so people thought they went out to get blood to nourish their bodies and bring out some reddish color to their skin.

    That is wrong. Dracul means Dragon. Add the A on the end and it is Son of the Dragon.

    Christopher Lee also played Sherlock Holmes and The Mummy. More important to his career, though late in it, he played Saruman in The Lord of the Rings to great critical appreciation. He was a fine actor and given good material he shone. He was great in that unnerving folk horror film The Wicker Man (his favorite role). He played Rochefort, to powerful effect, in Richard Lester’s THREE MUSKETEERS He played a villain in Star Wars Part Two: Attack of the Clones and the Bond villain in The Man with the Golden Gun. Lee was in British Army Intelligence during WW2, and it should be noted he spoke fluent German, Italian and French. Ironic, his playing a Bond villain later. He was given a CBE by the Queen and a lifetime achievement Bram Stoker Award (I received one of those myself, for my book Black Butterflies.)

    Christopher Lee liked playing Dracula because that was a role he could sink his teeth into.

    ;-p

    Close, but no banana… “Dracul,” was Vlad Tepes’s father, and yes, that meant “Dragon,” or “Devil,” but, Vlad chose “Dracula,” which means “Son of the Devil (or Dragon).”
