He was part of a secret agent unit called The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. When told by Peter Jackson to imagine how a man being stabbed in the back sounds like, he told him he didn’t have to imagine it. He was knighted on October 31, 2009 (that’s right, HALLOWEEN.) and has the same birthday as Vincent Price. He’s fluent in English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish; “moderately proficient” in Swedish, Russian, and Greek, and “conversational” in Madarin Chinese. He’s a direct descendant of Charlemagne.
