Morocco - Aït Benhaddou - Jamal Kashir, 26, sits in his house wearing the props he used on the movie sets. Jamal works as a carpet vendor and background actor in Aït Benhaddou, a village 30 kms from Ouarzazate. Thanks to its perfectly preserved Kasbah, the village has provided the setting for several renowned movies, including Lawrence of Arabia, The Jewel of the Nile, 007 – The Living Daylights, Babel, Gladiator, Queen of the Desert and Prince of Persia. Kashir still remembers all the famous actors who passed here. “Russell Crowe was the best, he used to spend time to visit the village after the end of the shootings” he remembers.
