Must be a reference to Bela Lugosi.
– A Hungarian actor best known as portraying
in the 1931 film adoptation of Bram Stoker's novel.
Béla Ferenc Dezső Blaskó
was born in Lugos, Banat region, Transylvania, former Kingdom of Hungary in 1882. He worked as an actor for a decade in Hungary and fought voluntarily in the Austro-Hungarian Army against the Russian Empire. In 1914 he had to leave Hungary because of his open political statements. He then worked in Vienna and Berlin for a short period of time then sailed to the United States in 1920. When he made his Broadway debut in 1922 he still knew no English. With assistance of a tutor Lugosi managed to memorize and phonetically reproduce his stage phrases without comprehending their meaning.
In addition to Dracula he played a number of roles in other horror movies too, quickly became one of the the most in-demand actor for horror films. He was one of the 13 native Hungarian celebrities who earned their own stars on the
Hollywood Walk of Fame
. More than 60 years before the Twilight films, madness among women set in motion for the mysterious Eastern European vampire – she received thousands of letters, dozens of women offered herselves, Lugosi became a real sex symbol. He once said:
"It is women who love horror. Gloat over it. Feed on it. Are nourished by it. Shudder and cling and cry out-and come back for more.”
In an interview in 1932, Dorothy West from Talking Pictures Epics, Inc. asked him:
"Do you believe in vampires?"
"Yes, and three of them, I married."
Lugosi was married five times and had one son, Bela George. His heart remained to be Hungarian for his whole life, loved soccer instead of football, helped finance the Los Angeles Magyar Soccer Club. He was also a hardcore stamp collector.
He died to a heart attack in 1956, at the age of 73. He was buried wearing his dracula cape by the request of his family. He never got to be recognized as a serious actor but achieved everlasting fame anyway. Rumors say his funeral was paid by
. Another anecdote insists when (Hungarian) actor
turned to Vincent Price during Lugosi's funeral and whispered: "
Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart, just in case?
Another fun fact that
lives (or lived) in Dracula's house as he bought Lugosi's 28-room estate for $3 million in 1996.
There are more Venthyrs with Hungarian names, like:
I would've asked for a refund if there wasn't at least
Bela Lugosi reference in Revendreth.
