Poll: Christopher Lee - What Could Have Been

Christopher Lee was a highly prolific actor, with 278 roles credited on IMDb; he especially excelled at giving his version of larger-than-life characters in epic franchises. These figures were often already well-known because of their literary source or other actors who had played them, but Lee would take possession of them.

Which iconic character do you most wish Christopher Lee had played at least once in his career?
