Khalid Ghajji: Proud of my Moroccan Origins and I Will Never Forget them

In the new episode of show Nayda in Hollywood, journalist Simo Benbachir welcomed Khalid Ghajji, a native of Tinghir who has managed to become one of the most wanted action actors (stunt) in the United States.

Khalid Ghajji told Simo about his arrival 10 years ago in Los Angeles from France. He moved there when he couldn’t speak English, had no money and didn’t even know what he was going to do for a living. “When I was in France, I practiced dance, but it wasn’t my dream job. And it was by chance that I met a French actor who specialized in action scenes (stunts). I was attracted by what he was doing, especially as I liked to do this kind of scenes when I was only 6 years old. At that time, I was influenced by Jackie Chan’s films that I watched with my father and brothers. “He told Simo.

Khalid Ghajji trained to become a “Stuntman”. He tried to get in touch, via social networks, with actors who do this kind of dangerous roles, but unfortunately no one replied. However, his perseverance allowed him to realize his dream.

Luck will smile on Khalid Ghajji when he had the opportunity to take part in the successful series known as “SWAT”. About this experience, he told Simo: “It’s a wonderful experience. The staff treated me well. I was supposed to work with them for one day and then travel to New Orleans to participate in a movie with Jimmy Fox, but I was surprised, shortly before the trip, by a phone call in which the series crew invited me to work with them permanently after they appreciated my performance. I didn’t hesitate to accept, especially since I was traveling a lot and away from my wife and children. »

Regarding a possible participation in a Moroccan film, Khalid Ghajji said he would be very happy to do so. “Two years ago, I participated in the film John Wake 3, whose scenes were shot in Essaouira. I was very happy to visit my country. I will never forget my roots and I will always be proud of them,” he said.
