Tall, well built and ruggedly handsome American actor Charlton Heston (1923-2008) appeared in 100 Hollywood films over the course of 60 years. With features chiselled in stone, he became famous for playing a long list of historical figures, particularly in Biblical epics.


Yul Brynner (Юлий Борисович Бринер, 1920–1985) was a Russian-born United States-based film and stage actor. He was best known for his portrayal of the King Mongkut of Siam in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I.
