Fares Fares is an Assyrian-Swedish actor. His brother is director Josef Fares.
Fares was born in Beirut, Lebanon, of Assyrian origin. In 1987, when he was fourteen years old, his family moved to Sweden to escape the Lebanese Civil War, residing in Örebro, where they had relatives.
On his religion, Fares has said: “I’m not a Muslim. I was born Christian.” He often plays Middle Eastern characters.
He’s definitely not darker than average Turk.
His name is pronounced as Faris or Ferris.
Not fares, as in price fares.
He’s handsome. He’s a huskier James Franco.
Glad that there are Assyrian actors around – not so much is known about that ethnicity.
