We are sad to hear that Academy Award nominated actor Omar Sharif has died, aged 83.

He began his acting career in 1954 with the Egyptian film Shaytan al-Sahra (Devil of the Sahara) and starred in over 20 Egyptian films. His first English language film, and breakthrough role that led to stardom, came with the role of Sharif Ali in Lawrence of Arabia (1962). This performance earned him the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nomination.

Over the following years he starred in films such as Behold a Pale Horse (1964), The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964), Genghis Khan (1965), Funny Girl (1968), Mackenna’s Gold (1969), The Tamarind Seed (1974), Juggernaut (1974), Funny Lady (1975), Top Secret! (1984) and a cameo appearance in The Pink Panther Strike Again (1976).

Perhaps his best known role though was that of Dr. Yuri Zhivago in David Lean‘s 1965 epic Doctor Zhivago.
