] told me Bond was based--Pierce Brosnan
was by far the best and closest to the character.
Has played a staggering amount of Victorian characters. He played Count Dracula ten times, Dr. Fu Manchu five times, Sherlock Holmes three times, Mycroft Holmes (Sherlock's brother) once and Sir Henry Baskerville (a friend of Holmes) once. He also appeared in The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll
(1960) and I, Monster
(1971), adaptations of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", among others.
Frequently plays imposing, menacing villains
