Unidentified actors
screenshot53.jpg
Amina's handmaidens (3 identified, 1 remaining)

screenshot201.jpg
screenshot212.jpg
Kadigia's handmaidens

screenshot122.jpg
Palace physicians
It has been suggested to me that the physician on the left is Mario Passante, who is listed on IMDb with no role, but I don't think it's him

screenshot90.jpg
Assistant to Mohammad Agrebi's character (very likely a Tunisian actor)

screenshot189.jpg
screenshot140.jpg
screenshot151.jpg
screenshot156.jpg
screenshot168.jpg
screenshot198.jpg
Suitors for the hand of Amina
The first one has a quite substantial speaking role.
The second one I'm not quite sure if he is Frazier Rippy again.

I recognize quite a few of the unknowns:

These two are Luana Castellano and Betsy Bell

Domenico Cianfriglia

Aldo Vasco

Franzo Colangelo! Can't believe we've all managed to somehow miss him!

Enzo Mondino

I think this should be Sergio Marga

And not sure about this one, but maybe a young Angelo Boscariol...?

The potion maker should be JAMAL JOUDI (https://en.notrecinema.com/communaute/s ... idx=153531), apparently credited in the international version

Yes, he is indeed listed in the English credits - as Joudi Mohammed Jamil. Good catch! :thumbup:
