The definitive Bond villain, Ernst Stavro Blofeld is an evil genius with aspirations of world domination. He appears or is heard of in six Bond films. It was initially a convention of the films not to show Blofeld's face, only a closeup of him stroking his white blue-eyed Turkish Angora. He was portrayed by Tella Savalas (left) in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), Charles Gray (right) in Diamonds are Forever (1971), and Max Von Sydow even gave it a stab in Never Say Never Again, the 1983 remake of Thunderball. However the definitive performance was by Donald Pleasance (1967), upon whose portrayal Dr Evil was modelled in the Austin Powers series.
