Siddig is the nephew of English actor Malcolm McDowell and of

He acted under his original name Siddig El Fadil until he changed it during the production of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Some attendees said later that Troughton looked clearly unwell to them, although he appeared to be in good spirits throughout the day's panels and was apparently looking forward to a belated birthday celebration that was planned for the Saturday night and a screening of the Doctor Who story The Dominators, which Troughton had requested personally, on the Saturday afternoon. Siddig was born in Sudan but spent most of his life in England. On March 27, 1987, Troughton was a guest at the Magnum Opus Con II science fiction convention in Columbus, Georgia. He is most famous for playing Dr Julian Bashir in the Star Trek television series Deep Space Nine. Troughton also continued to smoke heavilly and declined to commit himself to any real physical exercise despite his worsening health and his early death was predicted as an inevitable consequence by his doctors. Siddig El Fadil (born 21 November 1965) is a Sudanese/English actor also known as Alexander Siddig. Following each of these attacks, his doctor's warnings were again ignored as Troughton committed himself to a heavy TV and film schedule.
He suffered two major heart attacks in 1978 and 1984 which knocked him out of acting for several months both times. Troughton's health was never that robust and late in his life he flatly refused to accept his doctor's advice that he had developed a serious heart condition through overwork and stress. Troughton's sons, David and Michael are both well-known actors on stage and screen. Apprehensive at first, Troughton was later so delighted at the prospect of appearing in support of the show that he readily agreed to appear one more time as the Doctor with Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor in The Two Doctors (1985).
Troughton agreed, and also went along with Nathan-Turner to appear on behalf of the series at conventions the world over. In 1983, Troughton was asked by then-series producer John Nathan-Turner to appear in the 20th anniversary story The Five Doctors. He was also seen in the movie Jason & the Argonauts, in The Box of Delights, and as Father Brennen in the movie The Omen (1976). He is probably best known as the second actor to play the lead role of the Doctor in the long-running science fiction television series Doctor Who, which he did from 1966 until 1969.
Patrick George Troughton (March 25, 1920–March 28, 1987) was a versatile and prolific British actor.
