Personal Quotes (3)

There's really nothing to do there. Some kids go walking in the mountains but I just went to the cinema. So when I told my parents I wanted to be an actor, even though this wasn't normal for Arab kids or anyone in the town, they were sort of expecting it and were very supportive.
I'm just a boy from the countryside. These awards ceremonies exist in another world, like myths. They're not something I ever thought about, so it's not a dream come true. It is the impossible made real.
I was watching three or four movies a week, every week. And after a while I was unselfconscious enough and pretentious enough to think that, yes, I could be up there on the screen too. That could be me.
