Biography

Slender, dashingly handsome actor of Sudanese-English parentage (his mother is the sister of actor Malcolm McDowall) who first made an appearance on the big screen in Stephen Frears' "Sammie and Rosie Get Laid" (1987). He subsequently recreated Alec Guinness' role as Emir Feisal from the 1962 film "Lawrence of Arabia" for the "Great Performances" TV drama, "A Dangerous Man: Lawrence After Arabia", as it continued the story of English adventurer T.E. Lawrence (Ralph Fiennes). Siddig, is however, best known for his quietly suave and sensitively appealing Dr. Bashir on the popular sci-fi spin-off series "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993-99). He changed his name from Siddig El Fadil to Alexander Siddig at the beginning of the fourth season. It seems that after three years, fans were still having trouble with his name.
