His films tended to feature characters who were individualistic and responsible. If the character did not possess these virtues, Heston refused to play the character. Like many men of the 1940s, Charlton Heston served in the United States Army. He did not begin his acting career until after his military service was over. In addition to his acting career, he has been an avid political activist.
