TriviaSon, Django El Tahir El Siddig, born. [16 September 1996] Originally credited as "Siddig El Fadil", he changed his professional name to "Alexander Siddig" because (as reported by him at Star Trek conventions) nobody could pronounce "El Fadil". 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. Son Django was born around 11pm. After spending all night with his son and wife, Siddig went to work at "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) the following day at 5:30am to continuing filming the episode "Let He Who Is Without Sin". Shares a birthday with Björk, Goldie Hawn, Rachel Rogers, Nicollette Sheridan, & Juliet Mills Ex-brother-in-law of Ian Tucker and Zan Charisse. His "Star Trek: DS9" character Dr. Bashir has been seen as having similar high moral values as the real life Middle Eastern Doctor Bashar, featured in Time Magazine, in 2003.
