Alexander Siddig: (when asked if he sees himself as a 'heroic figure') I'm a heroic figure. I don't know about my character. [laughs] No, no, it was just too good an opportunity.
He is a heroic figure. If I was in that position, I would love to be that guy, and I'm not even sure I wouldn't mind being shot by the goddamn Americans, if that was the case, or the Russians, or the Filipinos, or whoever happens to rule the world at that particular moment in time, in my fantasy scenario. Because to live like that, it's Gandhi, it's another form of that but just the Arab version.
