The story behind the creation of “Shrek”

Shrek in real life

William Steig is the creator of the famous cartoon “Shrek”. He got the inspiration to create the character from Maurice Tillet – a professional wrestler.

The real prototype spoke 14 languages and played chess brilliantly. Despite the intimidating face and enormous strength, he was a very modest and friendly man.

He was born in 1903 in the Urals, Russia into a French family. In 1917 the family returned back to France because of the revolution.
