Donald Henry Pleasence, OBE, (5 October 1919 – 2 February 1995) was an English actor. His high work rate in international cinema earned him the distinction of being the most prolific film actor at the time of his death with over 200 screen credits. Although a large number of his characters were villains and psychopaths, he is perhaps best known for his roles in two enduring film franchises, the James Bond series and the Halloween saga. In the former, he portrayed Ernst Stavro Blofeld in You Only Live Twice, thus becoming the first of several actors to give a face to Bond's persistent nemesis. In the latter, he hunted serial killer Michael Myers as Dr. Sam Loomis throughout five Halloween films (I, II, IV, V and VI).
