    Christopher Lee

    Just seemed like an actor who really enjoyed playing the part, and for that I've always liked his portrayal. As it's one I also grew up watching as well thru several films.
    Lugosi is another that falls into this catagory as well.

    Chris Lee or Gary Oldman.

    Honorable mention...

    Bela Lugosi
    Gerard Butler
    Duncan Regehr
    John Carradine

    Love the book, but I always liked more Animalistic Dracula's over the classy "I found my lost love" sappy Drac's (which wasn't in the original story). Gary came close to getting on my nerves with that, but in other parts he was damn sinister it made you forget about the poo-poo crap.

    Gerard Butlers Judas/Dracula wasn't that good. He was more Ann Rice vampire than the count

    Compared to others who have plated Dracula, he wasn't that bad. Better than that Goth/Emo clown in Van Helsing.

    another name of note, Louis Jordan in that BBC series from the 80's that was close to the book.

    Are you kidding? That was probably the worst incarnation of Dracula ever!
