19 Aug – Teenage actor Aliff Firdaus, who will be making his feature film debut in "Jejak Warriors", admits that he was initially apprehensive during the movie's filming. However, the more experienced cast members helped him overcome his nervousness.
"Even though I am still new and was very nervous to act alongside the popular actors, they gave me plenty of help," said the silver screen newcomer to mStar.
"They shared their know-hows with me and were always asking if I could do it or not."
Aliff, born Muhammad Aliff Firdaus Rosdi, added that he was just as nervous when acting alongside football players Khairul Fahmi Che Mat, Wan Zack Haikal Wan Nor, Mohd Fitri Omar, Ahmad Fakri Saarani and Wan Zaharulnizam Wan Zakaria
Apart from Aliff and the Kelantan football players, the movie by Saw Teong Hin also stars Pekin Ibrahim, Nadiya Nissa, Amir Raja Lawak, Radhi Khalid, Bell Ngasri, Sabri Yunus and Fauziah Ahmad Daud.
The 14-year-old star of the movie reveals that his acting career began at the age of 10 when he starred in actor-director Sabri Yunus' telemovie "Hari-Hari Terakhir Seorang Seniman". Aliff has since starred in four other telemovies.
"Jejak Warriors", which tells the story of teenager Wan Raja who wishes to meet professional football team The Red Warriors, opens in cinemas this 27 August.
