According to reports, a British actor Michael Enright decided to quit acting in order to join the ongoing fight against Islamic extremists, ISIS, in Syria.
52-year-old British actor, Michael Enright, decided to trade the glitz and glamour of Hollywood for the trenches behind enemy lines in Syria.
The former actor who starred alongside Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean and Tom Cruise in Knight and Day joined the Kurdish rebel force known as YPG back in 2015.
He was motivated to quit Hollywood after seeing the video of James Foley, the US journalist whose head was chopped off by popular terrorist Mohammed Emwazi aka Jihadi John.
Speaking on the recent bomb attacks at the Ariana Grande concert in his hometown, the Manchester-born actor said he plans to avenge the terrorist attack as he will have no mercy on the jihadists.
“I will remember Manchester Arena and the two attacks in London on Westminster Bridge and at Borough Market. The attack in Manchester especially brought a lot of emotions. I’m used to a lot of death, and terrorist attacks, but this was different, it’s my home town.
I’ll give ISIS no quarter. I won’t expect much mercy from them and I will not give them much mercy, that I can promise you.”

Enright who was named Mustafa Rojava, by his Kurdish colleagues, said hearing the news about the attack strengthened his resolve to fight. He said:
It might be a bit strange but when I heard about the attack on London Bridge I thought, ‘I wish I’d been there’.
I’d have grabbed the nearest knife. I don’t know which way it would have gone but at least I could have gone for them. It just absolutely hardened my heart. Every single day now when there’s an operation here in Syria against ISIS I’m the first to put my hand up to volunteer.”
This is awesome!
