Check out Christopher Lee's interview. Click "Stream for Free" for higher resolution Over his 54-year career, Christopher Lee has become one of Britain's most prolific actors. From his famous portrayal of Dracula in the 1960s (among other Hammer Studio horror films) to his terrifying depiction of Saruman in The Lord of the Rings, the actor has appeared in a whopping 218 films and television shows. He has also lent his voice to three video games, least notably 1999's Rocky Interactive Horror Show.

By contrast, Heather Graham is most famous for being a sexy starlet of the '90s and '00s. The Wisconsin-born actress' defining role was as the porn star Rollergirl in 1997's Boogie Nights, although she has also made notable appearances in Bowfinger and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

With such different careers, what could these two actors have in common? Both will lend their voices to EverQuest II, the upcoming massively multiplayer role-playing game from Sony Online Entertainment. Lucan D'Lere, the 1000-year-old evil lord of the city of Freeport, will be graced with Lee's basso profundo. Graham will have a similarly prestigious role as Antonia Bayle, Queen of Qeynos and leader of the game's benevolent faction.

“Christopher Lee is an icon in the entertainment industry, having been a part of some of the greatest fantasy and science fiction franchises in history, and he has truly brought Lucan D’Lere to life," said Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley. "Heather Graham embodies the spirit of fantasy, giving life to Antonia Bayle, the leader of the forces of good. Both deliver compelling performances for our players that blur the line between blockbuster Hollywood films and interactive gaming.”

Joining Lee and Graham in EverQuest II will be nearly 1,700 other voice actors who will recite more than 70,000 lines of dialogue. For more details on the game, check out our previous coverage.
