TV Mini-Series | | Biography, Drama, History
A mini-series concentrating on the youngest Pharaoh to rule Ancient Egypt.
This marks a second time Sir Ben Kingsley starred in an ancient Egyptian role. The first being Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014). Kingsley also starred in three movies that involved Pharaohs in ancient times, Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014), Moses (1995), and Joseph (1995).
Ankhesenamun was Tutankhamun's half-sister, not full sister. (And would have been unrelated if Tutankhamun was not in fact the son of Akhenaten, as the drama has it.) And after Tutankhamun's death, she tried unsuccessfully to marry a Hittite prince rather than accept Ay.
