LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15 (UPI) -- Since returning from filming ABC's "Path to 9/11" in Morocco, U.S. actor Donnie Wahlberg has praised its Muslim population for its response to the film crew.

The Los Angeles Daily News said the actor, who plays a CIA operative in the pre-Sept. 11 terror attack film, was pleasantly surprised by the lack of animosity among the citizens of the North African country.

"The best thing I got out of it was working in a post-9/11 world with predominantly Muslim people," Wahlberg said. "To see the camaraderie and friendship and bonds that were formed between the Americans over there and the Muslim people working on the project from all over the world was very powerful and very beautiful. I wish more people could see that."

The 36-year-old actor also said his experiences in Morocco helped him see the truth and the humanity behind what most people receive from the media in their normally busy lives, the Daily News said.

The newspaper said that "Path to 9/11" will air over two nights on ABC on Sept. 10 and 11.
