CHARMING BUT DEADLY. PATRICK MACNEE TALKS IBLIS.
Patrick Macnee brings charm and danger to the role of the mysterious Count Iblis, in the two-part classic episode WAR OF THE GODS. He recalled his playing of the role to the UK magazine SFX in 1997: "Lorne Greene was an old friend from Canada. I thought I was quite good in Battlestar, because the part was very good- I played the devil in that, though you never knew whether he was or not. He built up to be a big character, but turned out to be evil and you couldn't take him any further."
