Sir Ben Kingsley To Play Top Adviser To Tutankhamun
Sir Ben Kingsley is going back in time to star in a new Tv miniseries about Ancient Egyptian pharaoh King Tutankhamun.
The Oscar-winning Gandhi star will play grand vizier ay in the six-part Tut series, which is scheduled to start filming in Morocco and Canada this autumn, ahead of a 2015 premiere on U.S. network Spike Tv.
The British actor is no stranger to Ancient Egyptian roles - he has been cast as a pharaoh in the upcoming “Night At the Museum” sequel, “Secret of the Tomb”.
Kingsley also portrayed Egyptian prince-turned-prophet Moses and Potiphar in 1995 Tv movies.
