If you've seen Pirates of the Caribbean or sat through an episode of Law and Order, you've probably come across Englishman Michael Enright in his former life as a Hollywood actor. 

But these days Enright is apparently fighting the real-life war against Daesh with a rifle he's named Olga. A few months ago, he hopped on a plane to Iraq to join Kurdish militia YPG, who is fighting the extremist group in the Sinjar mountains.

This was revealed in a Facebook post shortly after, and now everyone’s freaking out a little bit.

Britain's Daily Mail called him Hollywood's Jihadi Hunter, others dug up photos of him chumming it with Anne Hathaway and Tom Cruise.

Here's what he has to say on some things.

On "Olga": "I sleep next to my AK-47, she's called Olga."

On Jihadi John: "What added to it all was that it was an Englishman [Jihadi John], that he had an English accent. And I just, it just touched me personally, in a very deep way."

And finally, on getting caught by Daesh: "If I’m about to get caught, then you know, we keep one bullet back for ourselves."
