CAIRO - 16 October 2020: Popular romance TV series “ Arous Beirut” (Beirut's Bride)  comes back to MBC 4 on Sunday, October 11.

Season one of “Beirut's Bride” acheived huge success after its premiere on September 2019.

Audience reactions toward the role played by Dhafer L'Abidine were very positive.

The TV series fans named him ‘The Gentleman of the Screen’ for playing the romantic character “Fares Al Daher” in the TV series.


In the beginning, Fares challenges his family to marry “Thuraya” who he loves regardless of his mother’s strong disapproval because of their social differences. 


And of course many conflicts arose at the Al Daher palace and multiple plots were being planned, but in the end nothing was able to put an end to their story.


Alongside Dhafer L'Abidine, Beirut's Bride brings together a cast of Arab TV stars including Carmen Bsaibes, TaklaChamoun, Mohamad Al Ahmad, Joe Trad, and Alaa Alzuabi, in addition to Rita Harb, who joined the cast of Season two. Season two is written by Tariq Sweden and directed by Fikret Kadioglu.

Dhafer also played characters with the characteristics of a gentleman several times before, which made the audience associate him with this image.


He played “Farid” in ”Layaly Eugenie” ( Eugenie Nights) TV series, which also co-stars Carmen Bsaibes. 

Also, in ”Halawet Al Dounia” ( Sweetness of Life” TV series, he played “Selim” in a drama story full of hope and love with Tunisian-Egyptian star Hend Sabry.

In 2015, Dhafer played “Hatem” that stirred controversy in ”Tahet Al Saytara” ( Under Control) TV series because of the transformation that his character undergoes over the course of the story.


L'Abidine’s latest TV series is “The Eddy” which premiered on Netflix last May, and where he plays Sami Ben Miled. 

He recently took part in the successful marketing campaign for Etisalat Emerald that made more than 10 million views in two weeks on Facebook.
