CAIRO - 28 April 2019: Famed Lebanese actor Nicolas Mouwad was chosen by American director David Helling to play the role of Prophet Abraham.
‘’After long months of wait, I am super excited to finally share with u the news that I was selected out of more than 1700 actors overseas to fly this June to Los Angeles to shoot “HIS ONLY SON”, my first ever American feature movie’’ Mouwad wrote on his official Instagram account.
Mouwad added that he is beyond thankful to God for always blessing him way more than he deserves not only for giving him this one of a kind career opportunity, but as well for giving him the blessing of playing one of god’s best men in history who is Prophet Abraham, in a movie that talks about one of Abraham’s hardest struggles.
Mouwad thanked the director David Helling for choosing him to play this way beyond words character, and for producers Roman Medjanov and Mike Kaney for taking the “hustle” of flying a Lebanese actor to shoot in the US with all the endless required paper work.
His repertoire includes many successful TV roles such as Tarek’s role in ‘’Sabea Gar’’ (Seventh Neighbor), Mourad in ‘’Heba Regl El-Ghorab’’, Farouk in ‘’Wanoos’’ and Nadeem in ‘’Teleat Rouhy ‘’.
He won me the best lead actor award at the London International Film Festival in 2013 on performing Omar role in the independent feature movie ‘’Takaseem El-Hob’’. He was a jury member at the Alexandria Short Film Festival in 2019.
Mouwad is an outspoken Arab actor who is concerned about many life issues, a young man with stances that he is never shy to express. Far more than just a heartthrob, Mouwad is carving a name for himself as one of the Arab World’s most ambitious artists.
