Personal Quote:

[In his 2010 Shock Cinema interview with journalist Anthony Petkovich about working with Jack Palance on the Dan Curtis production of Dracula (1974)] I was pretty frightened of that gentleman, because he was so bloody tall! He was six-foot-four and, as he wanted to look like Dracula, he had three-inch lifts in his shoes, so he was like six-foot-seven - and he was a big guy.

Trivia:

He grew up in Cambridge but went to Trinity College, Oxford. See more »
