Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Clash of the Titans (2010)] That was possibly the lamest movie I've ever been in. I mean, you know, there's some times when you do duds, and I must've been rubbish, because I think there was all of one minute more of performance that I may have done that didn't end up in the movie. So 50% of my performance was cut and...yeah, there's not much you can say about that. See more »

Trivia:

He was at one time considered for the role of Benjamin Sisko, the station commander of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). However, he was apparently considered too young. The role eventually went to Avery Brooks. However, the producers were impressed enough with Siddig and offered him the role of Dr. Julian Bashir. See more »
