Wiki

Charlton Heston (October 4, 1923 – April 5, 2008) was an American actor of film, theatre and television.

Heston is known for having played heroic roles, such as Moses in The Ten Commandments, Taylor in Planet of the Apes, and the eponymous characters of El Cid and Judah Ben-Hur, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Heston was also known for his political activism. In the 1950s and 1960s he was one of a handful of Hollywood actors to speak openly against racism and was an active supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Initially a moderate Democrat, he later supported conservative Republican policies and was president of the National Rifle Association from 1998 to 2003.
