Mehdi Dehbi stars in "Tyrant" on FX as Abdul.

Mehdi Dehbi started his education in music and theater acting at a very young age at the Gretry Akademie in Lüttich, Belgium. He was 16 years old when he was given his first role in the feature film "The Sun Assassinated," for which he was even nominated for best actor at the Joseph Plateau Awards. At 17 he moved to Brussels in order to study drama at the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels. Thereafter, he continued his training at the National Superior Drama Conservatoire in Paris and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art in London.

From 2009 onwards, Mehdi played such complex roles as a woman and a transvestite in "He's My Girl." For his role in "La Folle Histoire d'Amour" by Simon Eskenazy, Mehdi received the Révélations Award of the Césars commission. In 2012 he played a young Palestinian in the film "The Lying Game" and won the Golden Fipa as best actor. For his role as Yacine in "The Other Son" by Lorraine Levy, he won the Révélations Award of the Césars commission again. More recently, Mehdi was seen in the films "Mary Queen of Scots" with Camille Rutherford, and "A Most Wanted Man" by Anton Corbijn with an international cast including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe.
