Qusai Khouli is the flavour of the month in Arab cinemas and on Arab TV screens.
Born in Tartous, he studied at the Higher Institute for Dramatic Arts in Damascus. Khouli graduated in 1999 and first appeared in TV show called ‘Orientals’. Ever since, he has taken on a series of varied roles, from comedy to drama. Perhaps his most famous turn came in the historical drama Bab Al Hara (Neighbourhood›s Gate), a smash-hit production that followed the fortunes of a small Damascene suburb in the 1930s. More recently, Khouli played a blind man with a talent for playing the piano in the serial Al Ishq Al Haram.
