Omar Sharif dies at 83: Starred in Lawrence Of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago died of a heart attack in Cairo. Omar Sharif dies at 83

Omar Sharif, the iconic star of classic movies Lawrence Of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago has died at the age of 83. His agent confirmed that the Egyptian actor die from a heart attack in Cairo earlier this afternoon (July 10th, 2015).

Sharif was born Michael Shalhoub in 1932, but changed his name after converting to Islam upon meeting the self proclaimed ‘love of his life’ Faten Hamama. He was perhaps most famous for his role as Sherif Ali in David Lean‘s 1962 epic Lawrence Of Arabia, and in Doctor Zhivago opposite Julie Christie four years later. He found fame in the Arab world much earlier however, after appearing in Sira’a Fil Wadi opposite Hamama in 1954, who would go on to become his wife, and mother to his son. »
