Hugo Drax - James Bond Wiki
Appears in:


  • French actor Michael Lonsdale, born in 1931.

Who he is:

  • He is a billionnaire living in California in a château that was imported from France. He owns Drax Industries, which constructs space shuttles.
  • In addition, Drax supposedly owns the Eiffel Tower but apparently couldn't export it from France because they wouldn't issue him an export permit.
  • Drax portrays himself as an accomplished pianist, as evidenced by his recital of Chopin's "Raindrop" Prelude in D flat major (op. 28) on his grand piano (which he plays in the key of D), posing as a piano player in an attempt to impress his guests.

Evil scheme:

  • Seeks to destroy humanity from space with a lethal poisonous gas, then repopulate the Earth with his "perfect physical specimens".


Attempted methods of killing Bond:

  • Sending Chang, Jaws and several henchmen to kill him
  • Making him fall into his python's pool
  • Burning him with space shuttle rocket engines
  • Intends to throw him in outer space
  • Intends to shoot Bond himself with a laser gun

How plans were foiled:

  • Bond and Holly Goodhead arrive at the space station and alert the Americans to its existence. A battle ensues and the station is destroyed. Bond and Goodhead pilot Drax's Moonraker equipped with a laser cannon and destroy the remaining lethal gas globes.

How he is dispatched:

  • Bond shoots him aboard his space station with a cyanide-tipped dart from his wrist dart gun, and then pushes him out of an airlock into space.

Defining dialogue:

  • "Look after Mr Bond, see that some harm comes tohim."
  • "Mr. Bond, you persist in defying my efforts to provide an amusing death for you."
  • "James Bond. You appear with the tedious inevitability of an unloved season."
  • "Jaws! You obey me!"
  • "At least I shall have the pleasure of putting you out of my misery."
