Christopher Lee, an actor who brought dramatic gravitas and aristocratic bearing to screen villains from Dracula to James Bond enemy Scaramanga, has died at age 93 .Lee appeared in more than 250 movies, including memorable roles as the wicked wizard Saruman in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and the evil Count Dooku in two of George Lucas' "Star Wars" prequels. In this October 15, 2002 photo British actor Christopher Lee holds the golden gun beside the Bond logo. Film critic Matthew Sweet said Lee brought a sensuality to the role that chimed with the newly permissive times.Lee was wary of being typecast, and later said the studio practically blackmailed him into continuing to appear as Dracula.Lee appeared in so many movies that he acknowledged he couldn't remember them all.Lee felt his gift for comedy was underappreciated. He was proud to have hosted the popular U.S. sketch show "Saturday Night Live" in 1978 and told the BBC that his greatest regret was turning down the part that went to Leslie Nielsen in the slapstick comedy "Airplane".
