Carlos Chahine

Born in Lebanon in 1959, Carlos Chahine is an award-winning Lebanese actor and director.

Chahine studied dentistry, but his attraction to the world of theater and cinema drove him to take acting courses from 1985 until 1988 at the National Theater of Strasbourg in France.

He began his career in France and Europe and worked with a number of well-known directors, including Michel Vinaver, Alain Françon and Michel Ocelot.

Chaine returned to Lebanon and was introduced to the audience as an actor in two films by Ghassan Salhab: “Al Rajol Al Akhir,” and “Ard Majhoula.”

Chahine has also directed a number of short movies, the most important of which was 2008’s “The North Road,” which earned several international awards, including Best Narrative Short Award at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2009.

His first theater direction experience was with the play “Majzara” (Arabic for Massacre), which was inspired by Yasmina Riza’s “Le Dieu du Carnage.”
