Bro, you can have anything in Jannah (Paradise)
; but we have to work in this life to earn that life.
For example, there's a farmer in a hadith (prophetic tradition)
whose biggest pleasure lay in cultivating his land, and since Allah is merciful, he would give him that. So, yes, anything and everything is possible, including being a movie star in Jannah
if that's your wish and aspiration.
Once the Prophet
was narrating (a story), while a Bedouin was sitting with him.
“One of the inhabitants of Paradise will ask Allah to allow him to cultivate the land.
Allah will ask him, ‘Are you not living in the pleasures you like?’
He will say, ‘Yes, but I like to cultivate the land.’
When the man (will be permitted he) will sow the seeds and the plants will grow up and get ripe, ready for reaping and so on till it will be as huge as mountains within a wink.
Allah will then say to him, ‘O son of Adam! Take here you are, gather (the yield); nothing satisfies you.’”
On that, the Bedouin said, “The man must be either from Quraish (i.e. an emigrant) or an Ansari, for they are farmers, whereas we are not farmers.”
smiled (at this). [Bukhaari, 3/39/538]
Bro, there are levels of Paradise; and what level of Paradise you're given is dependent on what you did in dunya
(world). And whatever level is given to the person would be satisfying to him/her as everybody would be content with whatever has been allotted to him/her.
Well, if you don't want to do extra prayers and so on and so forth and want a shortcut, there's another way to get to the highest level of Jannah
said, “No deed that will be placed on the scale of deeds [on the Day of Judgement] will be heavier than good character
. Indeed, a person with good character will attain the rank of those with a good record of voluntary fasts and prayers.” (Sunan At-Tirmidhee: 2003)
Yes, I suppose you could ask Allah for more palaces and castles, but whatever is given already will create so much happiness that you'll be content as avariciousness will not exist in Jannah
As for acting in this life (simply due to the nature of the profession), I wouldn't recommend it; as to that, I think you should probably consult an Islamic scholar on the matter to get a holistic perspective on the issue.
