Gyllenhaal also worked hard on his English accent, which for some reason the film-makers believed would have been deployed by a prince in 6th-Century Persia.In fact, the British influence is felt keenly throughout the movie. Ben Kingsley plays the evil nobleman Nizam, Alfred Molina plays Dastan’s mentor Sheik Amar, and Bond girl Gemma Arterton plays Dastan’s voluptuous love interest, the high priestess Tamina.
