Yul Brynner (born Yuliy Borisovich Briner, Russian: Юлий Борисович Бринер; July 11, 1920 – October 10, 1985) was a Russian-born Swiss film and stage actor. Brynner was best known for his portrayal of King Mongkut of Siam in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I, for which he won two Tony Awards and an Academy Award for the film version. He played the role 4,625 times on stage. He also starred as Ramesses II in the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille blockbuster The Ten Commandments, and played General Bounine in the 1956 film Anastasia, and the gunman Chris Adams in The Magnificent Seven.

    Yul Bryner also said (paraphrase), "When you go to your favorite restaurant and you are saistisfied having had the best meal, all that changes when you get the check." He was referring to being hurt in love. The hurt is the check and most of us pay. It is the same with life. Being born, the middle (the gift) and the end, the check.
