Yul Brynner (July 11, 1920 – October 10, 1985) was a Russian-born actor of stage and film, perhaps best known for his portrayal of the Siamese king in the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical The King and I on the stage and on the screen, as well as Rameses II in the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille film The Ten Commandments and as Chris Adams in The Magnificent Seven.

He was noted for his deep, rich voice and for his shaven head, which he kept as a personal trademark since adopting it in his role in The King and I.
