Aharon Ipale

Actor

Born - 27 December 1941, Meknes, Morocco
Died - 26 June 2016

Moroccan-born Israeli actor of slightly menacing handsomeness, with very dark hair (later balding) and overhanging eyebrows. Best recalled as the evil pharaoh, Seti, in two 'Mummy' films, he studied drama in England and began his acting career there, before a film debut in the Israel-made western Madron (1970). Now alternating between Britain and Hollywood, he made Fiddler on the Roof (1971), Innocent Bystanders (1972), the mini-series/feature film Moses (1974), Raid on Entebbe (1976), She's Too Hot to Handle (1976), The Immigrants (1978), The Concorde...Airport '79 (1979), Xanadu (1980), The Final Option (1982), The Shooting Party (1985), Ishtar (1987), One Man Out (1989), Eye of the Widow (1991), Son of the Pink Panther (1993), A Kid in Aladdin's Palace (1997), The Mummy (1999), The Mummy Returns (2001), Charlie Wilson's War (2007) and I'll Be Home Soon (2014), his last. In later times, he would express some bitterness about failing to obtain starring roles in Israel after his body of work on the international scene. He died from cancer.
