Probably best known for his role as Hugo Drax in Moonraker, but he was in over 200 films during his lengthy career.

:oops: didn't mean to shock anyone, just thought he was worth a mention, probably the first Bond villain that resonated with me, even if his character was incredibly evil, I guess that shows how much he brought to the role, and he'll likely be remembered for that portrayal above all else.

Top actor. The detective in “Day Of The Jackal” and a fine performance in “Munich”.
RIP Michael.

He also played the bloke with sore feet in " The Remains Of The Day".
