Many Lebanese artists have been proving their distinguished talents in their fields, making it to high positions in their careers, locally and internationally. So, it's no wonder to see a stream of talented Lebanese actors and actresses rising to appear in many leading roles worldwide.
Lately, we have been thrilled by the news our Lebanese actor Nicolas Moawad being selected from among 1,700 actors worldwide to perform in the American film "His Only Son." The Biblical story will be filmed during the month of June in Los Angeles - United States.
The 40-year-old Lebanese actor announced the great news by publishing a poster of the film on his official Instagram account, writing: "After long months of wait, I'm super excited to finally share with you 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."
Nicolas expressed his gratitude by saying: "I'm beyond thankful to God for always blessing me way more than I deserve, not only for giving me this one-of-a-kind career opportunity but, as well. for giving me the blessing of playing one of God's best men in history, ABRAHAM, in a movie that talks about one of Abraham's hardest struggles."
He also thanked the director of the movie David Helling for choosing him, and the producers Mike Kaney and Roman Medjanov for flying a Lebanese actor to shoot the movie in the USA.
His Only Son features the journey of Abraham with his son Isaac and their two servants as they go together to the place of offering, and the dangers and trials they face.
A challenging performance that requires an outstanding actor like Nicolas, the character Abraham would live his grievous struggle between his love and loyalty to God and his love to his only son; a son God had graced him with in response to decades of prayers with his wife Sarah.
Abraham would also relive these memories of aching wait for the only son whom he must now lay upon the altar of sacrifice.
Hopes and expectations are high on our Lebanese actor to allocate his very best to this challenging role. As we know him from his previous performances, Nicolas will indeed deliver the best performance of his career.
Nicolas Mouawad is a talented Lebanese TV Host and actor. He kick-started his acting career in 2002 as a serious stage actor in Lebanon for four years until our prominent Lebanese producer and writer Marwan Naggar picked him to be the lead in a television series "Helm Adar" (the dream of March) in March 2006.
Mouawad is known for his appearance in many Lebanese and Arabic series like "Al Taghiya", "Forsa" and the pan Arab tv series "Ruby" and many others. This award-winning artist is the latest actor who appears to be on the cusp of making it big as well in the film industry of Egypt.
