The Google Doodle on April 10 marks what would have been the 86th the birthday of Egyptian screen idol Omar Sharif, perhaps best known for his appearance in the 1962 historical epic Lawrence of Arabia. Sharif was born Michel Demitri Shalhoub in Alexandria, Egypt, on April 10, 1932, to a family of well-off Lebanese-Syrian Christians. Sharif converted to Islam to marry Hamama in 1955, changing his name to the Arabic Omar el-Sharif.
