Bessa, who previously appeared in the Russo-produced "Extraction", also talked about what attracted him to the film.

"The story itself, the fact that it's the first time in Hollywood that it's a whole Arabic cast in an Arabic language, which is historic. So to be part of this is amazing," he said.

"The accent, some of the words, the attitude. It's far, far from where I'm from," he said. "So it's the same language, I could understand maybe 60 per cent. It was two weeks of dialect coaching, plus on set. I mean, it was all day."

Bessa also laughed that he would often annoy his co-star Suhail Dabbach, who is from Baghdad, with questioned about proper pronunciation.

"I always asked him every day, the poor guy, I mean, I was knocking on his door, 'How do you pronounce this?'" he recalled. "He says, 'It's 2 in the morning, stop it.'"

"We had some English, we had some Romanian, I mean, we had people all over the place," Bessa said. "American, Canadian, we had really people from all over the place. So it was quite International."

For Bessa, it was also important that the film spotlights a heroic Arab characters, which is not always so common in Hollywood films.

"To be able in 2020 as an Arab to be a hero, it's a chance that's extraordinary. It represent millions and billions of people. Sometimes your images so dirtied by people like ISIS, or what we hear in the news, but at the end of the day, it's just a small, small minority that is dirtying all the image," he said.

"So, to tell this story, and to tell the story of this man, based on this article, true story. They fought people and they fought to liberate their city with no Americans, everyone left," he continued. "At the end of the day, it's just a human story. And you just see the fact that we have more in common than differences, you know."
