His name is Amro Zaghloul, a 32-year-old from Egypt. In 2011, Zaghloul came to Jinhua to pursue his master's degree in teaching Chinese to speakers of other languages at Zhejiang Normal University, and in 2016 he started studying for his doctorate at the same university.
Zaghloul is fluent in speaking Chinese thanks to his 10 years of living in China and now works as an actor in the country.
Zaghloul was recently working on a film at Jinhua's Hengdian World Studios, China's answer to Hollywood in the United States. He showed us around Hengdian and shared his experiences in shooting movies.
"I'm a big fan of Jackie Chan, he's the main reason why I came to China," said Zaghloul, who has been watching Jackie Chan movies and imitating his movements since he was a child.
"I like participating in school activities and I'm pretty good at hosting and performing,"Zaghloul added.
He has shot more than 30 films and television plays, making a name for himself in show business, including acting as a figurant and a guest actor.
Zaghloul is quite familiar with Hengdian, as many films and TV plays in which he acted were shot there.
On our first stop, a set imitating the famous picture Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival, Zaghloul played a figurant with tourists in Hengdian.
One our second stop, the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties-style palaces, he put on ancient Chinese clothes to experience green screen filming.
On our third stop, the Guangzhou Street-Hong Kong Street, Zaghloul wore clothes in the period of the Republic of China (1912-1949) to experience the charming Guangzhou and Hong Kong-style views.
