Chaim Topol has passed away at the age of 87. The Israeli actor, known mononymously as ‘Topol’ was most famous for playing Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, appearing as the milkman both on stage and in the 1971 film adaptation.
Isreali Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared the news, per CNN, telling the world, “Sadly, the fiddler on the roof is no longer with us. The strings of the fiddle have fallen silent.
“The story of Haim Topol’s life has been sealed but I am certain that his contribution to Israeli culture will live on for generations. He greatly loved the land of Israel, and the people of Israel loved him in return.”
