Firass Dirani on "Kick" - 6 (2007)

Firass Dirani (Nick/Bowen, Mystic Force) continued his recurring role on the New Zealand comedy series "Kick." Dirani portrayed Amen Salim, the sleazy older brother of the Salim family. In the eighth episode of the series titled "Playing With Fire," Amen sets his sights on teen soccer star Tatiana (played by Natasha Cunningham). While she enjoys the romantic attention, Amen takes provocative pictures of her posing on his car. But when Amen pressures her for more, Tatiana resists his insistence, refusing to see him again, which leads to complications given the fact that Tatiana is best friends with Amen's two younger siblings. This was Dirani's sixth appearance on the series.
