Who Played Blofeld In The Films?

We assume you mean “who were the faceless actors” to play Blofeld, but for the sake of completeness we`ll list *all* the actors. The decision not to show Blofeld`s face, and just have him pet the white cat, was clever, even brilliant. Oddly, nobody has ever claimed credit for this idea.

“Thunderball” (no face) Joseph Wiseman (voice; Wiseman played Doctor No in the film of the same name) Anthony Dawson (body)
