Carlos Villarías, sometimes credited as Carlos Villar, was a Spanish actor born in the city of Cordoba on July 7th, 1892. He is best remembered for playing the role of Conde Drácula in the 1931 Spanish version of Universal's Drácula. Villar's Dracula was filmed simulatneously with the American version of the film starring Bela Lugosi. While Lugosi's Dracula was filmed during the day, the Spanish version was filmed at night using the same set pieces. Film historians have cited that Villar played a more sympathetic version of the character; moreso than his more infamous Hungarian counterpart.
