‘United 93’ Actor Refused Visa

The lead actor in 9/11 movie United 93 will miss out on the film’s premiere in New York City on Tuesday, because the U.S. Embassy are denying him a visa.

London-based Lewis Alsamari plays the main hijacker in the film, which depicts the final hours of the passengers on United Airlines flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 11, 2001.

But although he was granted asylum in the UK in 1998, American authorities are less keen to welcome him across the Atlantic.

He explains, “I was born in Iraq but have lived in Britain since 1995 and am about to apply for British citizenship.”
