TEHRAN -- The Iranian actor Peyman Moadi has said that he will never collaborate in any film which challenges Islamic values and the government of his country.
 
He has appeared in U.S. director Peter Sattler’s debut “Camp X-Ray”, a drama about the temporary detention facility at the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp. 
 
In addition, he has also played the role of a corrupt emperor in Japanese director Kazuaki Kiriya’s action adventure “The Last Knights”.
 
“Many people hold this humorously incorrect belief that my collaboration in world cinema may be a prelude to appearing in anti-Islam films,” he said in a workshop, which was organized by actor Ali Sarabi at Tehran’s Milad Tower last week.
 
“The fact is that I would never be willing to act in a film that is in conflict with the Islamic and religious values of the Iranian people or disparages the government of the Islamic Republic,” he added.
 
He noted that this decision is not related to his concern about the future of his profession.
 
He said that all people so far he has met at international events have been very respectful of his country.
 
Moadi is mostly known for his excellent performances in Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar-winning “A Separation” and “About Elly”.
