    Just heard this on the news, very sad but he had a good long life and has acted in some wonderful movies, especially Lawrence of Arabia which is one of my all time favorites.

    RIP Omar

    Only last night I watched "Go" and he got the first mention in the "Dead Celebrities" game. Always bothered me.

    I always liked what this fantastic actor let them put him through in "Top Secret".

    Sad news, he was one of my mums favourite. A film I particularly like of his, is The Last Valley which was a box office flop. Who acts as a mediatior between villagers in a hidden valley and a bunch of mercenary lead by Michel Caine, in the 30 years war.
    Ill never forget an interview with him saying he loved France, saying he could walk down the street and on the other side be two French men and one would say to the other, There Omar Sharif, and the other would say So what. meaning he never got pestered with fans there.
    He was quite a gambler and his favourite came was backgammon.
