'''Charlton Heston''' (real name '''John Charles Carter'''; born October 4, 1923 died April 5, 2008) was an American actor. He was best known for his leading roles in [[GoldenAgeOfHollywood Hollywood]] [[EpicMovie Epics]] of the late 50's / early 60's as well as some notable ScienceFiction movies such as ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' and ''Film/SoylentGreen''. BigDamnHero moments happen a lot in his films.

Heston was also known for his political activism. In TheFifties and TheSixties he was one of a handful of Hollywood actors to speak openly against racism and was an active supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Initially a moderate Democrat, he later supported conservative Republicans and was president of the [[UsefulNotes/AmericanGunPolitics National Rifle Association]] from 1998 to 2003. The infamous ''[[BadassBoast "You'll get my rifle when you pry it from my cold, dead hands!"]]'' hurt his image with modern audiences.

He was a large man with a deep voice and genuine off-screen gravitas. When he met Creator/GeorgeMacDonaldFraser at the premiere of ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers1973'', he introduced himself from behind the writer by saying, "I'm Charlton Heston." Fraser turned around, startled, and replied, "By God, so you are!"
