Gad el Maleh is a comedian and film actor of Moroccan origin and really makes Omar laugh.
He is afraid of the possible pain he will face when he gets older, but has learned to love his body with all its scars and malformations. However, when things go bad for him, he always tries to be confident, which is a great character trait of him. If you would ask Omar for advice in life, he would say: “Take life seriously, be grateful you're alive and healthy and try to enjoy every second of your life.”
