The Doctor Zhivago & Lawrence of Arabia star passes away.

Screen legend Omar Sharif has passed away, aged 83.

The popular actor had appeared in countless cinematic classics like Doctor Zhivago, Lawrence of Arabia and the iconic TV mini-series The Far Pavilions.

Sharif’s agent Steve Kenis confirmed today “He suffered a heart attack this afternoon in a hospital in Cairo.” It was previously revealed that the actor had been battling with Alzheimer’s disease too.
