I am a former high profile soccer player that by an incident “slipped” into an acting career. Since my first appearance on screen 2003 my versatility has been evidenced by the varied of films and roles I have undertaken, in e.g. “Kniven i Hjärtat”, “Bron” (The Bridge / The Tunnel), “Hamilton 2″, "Ettor och Nollor" (The Fat & The Angry). My mixed background as well as mastering Arabic, French, Swedish and English enables me to take on a vast variety of roles. Since the start I have been in over 14 feature films, a hand ful shortfilms and 3 larger theatre sets.
The passion I have for film / theatre is shown in my role interpretations and also my way of working on the side as a script consultant. My stories have influenced script writers as well as directors and have been shown when working as a script consultant for instance in the Swedish TV series “Kniven i Hjärtat” directed by Agneta Fagerström as well as for the Swedish TV production “Ettor och Nollor” written by Oskar Söderlund and directed by Johan Renck where I also landed one of the leading roles. “Ettor och Nollor” or more known Internationally as The Fat and The Angry won Silver at the TV gala in Seoul, South Korea and is now in October compering at Prix Europa. During spring I was filming two short films, Malik directed by Ömer Dogan, where I played Samir a criminal gangster and Vaskduellen produced by Crazy Pictures AB where I played President Barack Obama.
I am at the side of my acting very active within FC Ibra, a team in the sport of futsal indoor soccer. FC Ibra is an association that aims to inspire, motivate and develop kids and teenagers in Sweden. One important name for FC Ibra is Zlatan Ibrahimovic who lent his name to the association and also supports it. I am not only active on the field but also off as I continuously visit schools and meet youngsters to spread hope and dreams. I am for many youngsters a raw model and give the hope that anything is possible if you just believe in yourself.
