Personal Details

Other Works:

A few years ago, a revival of Fiddler on the Roof in Hebrew was done in Israel for a limited number of shows. This time, portraying the same character in Hebrew, Topol again played the part of Tevye the milkman. Topol is, perhaps, one of few actors that played the same character on stage in two different languages. See more »

Personal Quote:

Anyone who ever plays Tevye should be thankful to Zero Mostel. He gave us all room and I know I wouldn't have done the movie without the advantage of a year's rehearsal on stage.

Trivia:

He was to appear in Michael Powell's film of "The Tempest," due to start shooting in Greece in 1975, before the project collapsed. See more »
