Shantaram - Alexander Siddig Joins Apple Series


Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Game of Thrones alum Alexander Siddig has been tapped to star opposite Charlie Hunnam in Apple’s sweeping international drama series Shantaram, based on Gregory David Roberts’ bestselling novel. It hails from Anonymous Content and Paramount Television Studios.

Shot across two continents, Shantaram tells the story of Lin (Hunnam), a man on the run from an Australian prison looking to get lost in the teeming city of Bombay. Cut off from family and friends by distance and fate, he finds a new life in the slums, bars and underworld of India.

Siddig will play the series-regular role of Khader Khan, the revered kingpin of Bombay’s underworld who acts as a surrogate father to Lin.
