After playing in the recent film, The Misfits, where he starred alongside the likes of veteran actors Pierce Brosnan, Tim Roth, and Nick Cannon, Lebanese actor Ahmed Mawas is back in the Middle East to work on another film.
North of the 10 is a story of friendship and chasing dreams with a love story weaved into it. It’s a bromance with a splash of romcom, Mawas told The961.
“This is the first indie film that has moved a collective crew of this size around the world from the Midwest (Chicago) to the Mideast (Abu Dhabi),” he said.
Mawas, who is from Tripoli and has a bit of Ghanian blood proudly flowing through his veins, will play the role of Omar, a serial entrepreneur who comes from an affluent family of Syrian descent.
“This is a very special role because I had the opportunity to share the screen with Middle Eastern legends Samer Masri and Jumana Mourad and learn a lot from both of them,” he said.
