'Fahim Speaks' to NH1: Afghan-American actor discusses book, films and interpreting during the war

CONCORD - Hollywood actor Fahim Fazli left Tinseltown to go back to Afghanistan, his birthplace, to serve as an interpreter for the U.S. Marines in Helmand Province during 2009 and 2010.

With help from co-author Michael Moffett, a Lt. Colonel in the Marines who teaches at NHTI, he wrote "Fahim Speaks: A Warrior-Actor's Odyssey from Afghanistan to Hollywood and Back."

Fazli and Moffett met with Nazzy in the NH1 News studios for an interview this week, talking about how they came to write the book.

Fazli also talked about his experiences in Hollywood, where he played terrorists in movies like "Argo," "Charlie Wilson's War" and "Ironman." He also shared his joy over his most recent film "Rock the Kasbah" with Bill Murray, which he says was his first chance to play a "good guy."
