Count Dooku was my favourite SW-character... and I also loved his roles in all his other movies (LotR, Dracula, James Bond etc). There was no better actor for villains than Christopher Lee.

yes, I'd say he was one of the real actors  from Hollywood, you know? Filming has changed aswel as the actors.
Christopher Lee represents one era of Hollywood, just like Sean Connery, Clint Eastwood and Max von Sydow.

Rest in peace, oh masterful villainous wizard. You've left an entire legacy behind your acts. Your charm and grace will be sorely missed. :

Why did he have to pass away...surely he can do bettah. Really Old Man and I were big fans of Dooku, I still quote him in MBII XD.

 

You'll long be missed Christopher Lee...

I remember his very different roles.

Count Dooku is just one of them, but there are also count Drakula and Mr.Scaramanga from 007 movie "A man with a golden gun". One of my favourites. And yes, the Fu Manchu Castle, if anyone knows this film. :)

 

Seeing him as Count Dooku was also a very pleasant experience within Star Wars. In my opinion the character actually surpasses many Jedi and Sith. Dooku is reprised by many other actors as well, including the cases in the series and the video games, but it was Christopher Lee, who managed to develop the old count personality as we know it.

 

By the way, did you know that Christopher Lee had a role of evil Kato in the Soviet-Sweedish-Norwegian film "Mio in the Land of Faraway"? Christian Bale is also in that film for children.
