The adventure and mystical blockbuster The Mummy was released in 1999. Interestingly, at first the film was conceived as a standard horror film with a modest budget. However, special effects, incredible for those times, unusual plot twists and sparkling humor provided “Mummy” with unexpected popularity.
Of course, vivid images skillfully created by the actors played an important role.
The priest-villain Imhotep performed by Arnold Voslu turned out to be so attractive and charismatic that the audience fell in love with him almost more than the positive main characters. Previously, Vol was offered only episodic roles, but after The Mummy, the actor literally woke up famous, and his talent was appreciated.
After 23 years, Arnold Vosloo remains a popular and sought-after actor. By the way, unlike another star of “The Mummy” Brendan Fraser, “Imhotep” managed to keep a great shape.
By the way, in real life, a man is the complete opposite of his “evil” screen image. Voslu is a happy family man, who is also very fond of animals, for the protection of which and for shelters he donates considerable sums.
