HE is best known for his creepy portrayal of Dracula. But last night British actor Christopher Lee was all smiles as he paid tribute to Dracula's creator, Dubliner Bram Stoker.

Mr Lee portrayed Dracula in the 1958 film adaptation of Stoker's iconic 1897 gothic novel.

He paid tribute to Stoker and pointed out that he was receiving the honorary life membership of UCD's Law Society on what would have been Stoker's 164th birthday.

The veteran actor (89) was joined by his wife Brigit for the occasion and received the award in front of around 500 students.
