Charlton Heston gets honoured with postage stamp
Charlton Heston recently got his own postage stamp that was unveiled at a ceremony at the historic Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
The 'Ben Hur' star's image for the stamp has reportedly been taken from a photo that was shot by his widow, Lydia Clarke Heston, the Hollywood Reporter reported.
Ned Vaughn, the founding executive VP of SAG-AFTRA said that the late actor fundamentally personified a dedication to fight for what he valued, no matter where or when he was needed.
Michael Levine, the actor's publicist for 21 years, who launched his effort to put Heston's image on a stamp, said that it wasn't easy for the first two years, and it wasn't popular.
Levine added that the American actor was an extraordinary guy, not just an extraordinary actor.
