Deep Space Nine actor Alexander Siddig (Julian Bashir) spoke about the various acting jobs he's had since the end of the Star Trek series.

"For a while there I was inundated with terrorist roles," Siddig told SFX Magazine (via Scifi Pulse). "I had cornered the market in terrorism."

"Bad guys from every direction!" he continued. "Yeah, I can be an arrogant Arab Terrorist and a kalashinkov-welding British Bastard.

"It's been a pretty bizarre couple of years personally, and that's been interesting. But I've been having a really good time in terms of the work!"

The actor is currently at work on his own production, 'Night Witches.' The film deals with a group of Russian women, enlisted by the Soviet Union as fighter pilots to fight off the Germans during World War II.

"I wrote, and rewrote, this movie about female Russian air pilots, these babes who flew in WW2, for real," Siddig told the magazine. "They were really an amazing fighter squadron. We did quite a good job of it, even if I say so myself."

More from Alexander Siddig, including information on 'Night Witches' can be found in the current issue of SFX Magazine, out now in the UK. Alternatively, extracts are online here at Scifi Pulse.
