Britain is struggling to escape to make an action film resembling a Bruce Lee hiding from the Taliban.
Afghan actor Abbas Alizada, 28, says his training partner was stabbed to death by extremists.
He fears that he is next and cannot stay in one place for more than two days.
The Taliban despise thousands like Abbas. Speaking from a bolthole in Kabul, he said: “I want to take myself, my two children and four brothers to the UK.”
Abbas, who posts online videos of his fitness routine including press-ups on two fingers, hasn’t been able to train since his August takeover.
He rated Way of the Dragon as the best film starring his idol Lee, who died in 1973 at the age of 32.
Abbas’s London-based solicitor Mahtab Aziz said he made four martial arts films and played a role in a Hollywood film before he got caught by Kovid.
The lawyer said: “The Taliban are very unpredictable and Abbas can easily be killed.
“He’s a very impressive martial arts fighter and boxer with great potential to be the next Bruce Lee.”
Pakistan may allow Abbas and his family to go there in a few days.
Mr Aziz said: “He wants to come to the UK because I am here and he trusts me.
I believe he can take the UK film industry by storm. He is very charismatic.”
