As I found this photo of a frozen Dr. Zhivago, I wanted to express my sympathy for the passing of Omar Sharif, who died of a heart attack on July 10 at the age of 83.
Born in Egypt as Michel Demitri Shalhoub, of Lebanese and Syrian descent, he held degrees in mathematics and physics, and was a renowned, world-class bridge player.
He was discovered by the world in a supporting role in Lawrence of Arabia, was noted as the dashing romantic lead in Funny Girl, and went on to accumulate an impressive cinematic resume.
But to me, he will always be Zhivago.
Here he is, all thawed out.
Rest in peace, dear sir, you will never be forgotten.
