I’ve never said this before but ‘Far From Home’ came out and people weren’t seeing me in promos.
I was shocked (but) I didn’t complain, I didn’t call anyone, I didn’t lose my ish. I just felt okay. Something in me just felt like okay your work will speak for you anyways and then you put in 2 years into this project then to come and start begging for publicity is like you know… do what you’re gonna do.
But then people started calling me like ‘how far, we’re not seeing you in posters, we’re not seeing you in this’ and it just got to a point and I was like you know what, maybe I am not even in the final cut after all. Let me call production and be like guys am I this film? And they were like, of course you are.
But I’m not seeing myself in stuff. Meanwhile I was talking to someone who said the reason why they didn’t put you in the stuff, it was a rumour by the way, he said the reason why they didn’t put you in stuff was because you demanded to be called Mr. Fattah on set.
And I was like, no I’ve never demanded to be called Mr. Fattah on set. Like I wouldn’t. Any actor wouldn’t want to be called their real names on set, they would want to be called their character names so they can stay on that mindset. And then the person goes on that that’s the reason why they didn’t put me on… that never happened but bad news spreads faster than good news anyways and I was like wow.
I mean it hurts, I won’t lie but what can I say?
