Description

According to his agent, legendary actor Omar Sharif is battling Alzheimer's disease and is resting at his home in Cairo. The 83-year-old actor's son, Tarek Sharif, first revealed his dad's diagnosis in an interview with Spain's El Mundo over the weekend but did not go into details. Sharif, who was born in Alexandria, Egypt, was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role of revolutionary Sherif Ali in the 1962 classic Lawrence of Arabia, his collaboration with co-star Peter O'Toole also resulting in an enduring friendship. The star has amassed dozens of film and TV movie credits over the years, his brooding good looks and worldly accent scoring him roles of varying nationalities and ethnicities. http://www.eonline.com/news/660255/omar-sharif-is-battling-alzheimer-s-disease-son-reveals?cmpid=rss-000000-rssfeed-365-topstories&utm_source=eonline&utm_medium=rssfeeds&utm_campaign=rss_topstories http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
