Privately-owned Al-Shorouk quoted him as saying that he hopes to one day work on a film in Egypt and will not hesitate to do so if he finds the appropriate screenplay.

Glover last visited Luxor in 2014, when he attended the third edition of the same festival he is participating in during his current trip. According to state-owned Al-Ahram, the actor is also set to take a tour of Luxor’s historic sites and visit its various touristic attractions.

He has also garnered recognition for his activism, particularly for being outspoken on race issues in the United States.
