Although Harrison Ford is the only actor to appear in all five Indiana Jones movies, there have been a handful of people who’ve paired with Dr. Henry Jones Jr. for more than one adventure. Among them is John Rhys-Davies, who first played longtime friend Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade, then was brought back last year for The Dial of Destiny (following his refusal to appear in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). Because Indiana Jones 5 is the last movie in the franchise, we won’t be seeing Sallah onscreen again, but Rhys-Davies has shared what he thinks happened to his character after the events of the 1969-set story.

While appearing at a MegaCon panel hosted by Collider’s Arezou Amin, Rhys-Davies was asked if he prefers playing Sallah or Gimli from the original Lord of the Rings trilogy. The actor chose the former, describing Sallah as “wonderful” and “probably the only Arab hero in contemporary Western culture that we recognize.” Later on, Rhys-Davies said the following about how he envisions what the future holds in store for his Indiana Jones character:

I’ll tell you how I think Sallah ends up. I think he ends up like that wonderful fellow Waleed [Khaled] al-As’ad, who is the keeper of the museum in Palmyra. And when ISIS came or I think it was ISIS, he refused, he’d hidden all the treasures and he refused to give them out. And they said, if you don’t, we will kill you and he refused. And I think he was 82 years old and he was forced to kneel and they beheaded him. That’s a man protecting his culture. That’s a man protecting history. And I believe that’s the sort of man that Sallah might have become.
