(My Favorite Weekend - Oded Fehr by Robin Rauzi, L. Times Calendar section, 2001) "I didn't know how to ride a horse in the first [Mummy]," Fehr reveals, "So I concentrated quite strongly on this one. He's a nice guy." (a Fehr to remember by Dennis Hensley, Movieline, 2001) That is a question you should ask the people around me. I rode in LA, I rode in Toronto, I rode here in London. And when we were out in Morocco, I stayed a whole month - about two weeks longer than any of the other actors - to shoot the huge battle scene.

My skin still crawls when we get guns on the set because guns for me, and in Israel, are something that is there for killing. It's all fun." (Guardian Of The Tomb by Jeff Bond, 2001) Q. I was always very practical and I never felt that acting was a good job to be in. You know, that came out and Deuce Bigalow was coming out and me with the long hair and all the rest of it.
Did you ever consider being an actor when you were growing up? I moved to Germany and tried to start a marketing business with my father, but it just didn't thrill me. I was dating my now wife at the time and she wouldn't have anything to do with me for three months just because of that nice little article.
