Bassel Khaiat is one of the most distinguished actors in the Arab world, whose outstanding talent and remarkable depiction of challenging roles won him rave reviews by critics and audiences alike across the Arab world.

Bassel made his first foray into acting at the age of eight through the children's theatre. In pursuit of his passion for acting, he studied Acting at the Higher Institute of Theatrical Arts, to embark on his journey on stage after his graduation.

Bassel's immense talent drove him to expand his horizons and star in TV drama. He landed his first role in a TV drama in Kan Ya Ma Kan, which was followed by a number of successful serial dramas. In 2000, he starred in Asrar al-Madina (2000) by director Hisham Sharbatji, where his spontaneous performance caught the attention of audiences and critics alike. In 2004, Bassel's performance in Ahlam kabira TV series by director Hatem Ali won him rave reviews. He then took part in a number of successful TV series, including Rabee’ Qortoba (2003), Ealaa Hafat Alhawia (2007), and Abu Khalil Alqabani (2010).

After demonstrating a noteworthy talent in Syria, Bassel then set his eyes on Egyptian drama, landing in his first Egyptian TV series Neeran Sadeeqa (2013). His exceptional performance as Qazzaf drew the attention of several TV directors in Egypt, which prompted his name to star in more Egyptian TV dramas, playing psychologically challenging roles that highlighted his unprecedented talent. These include: Tariqi (2015), Al Mizan (2016), 30 Youm (2018) and Al Rehla (2018). In 30 Youm, Bassel played the character of Sameh/Tawfeeq that made several critics dub him "the Joker" for his fantastic performance as a villain that touched the audiences. He also played another challenging character in Al Rehla, the thing that emphasized Bassel’s intensive and deep study of the characters he plays.

His most recent works include the thriller Al Nahhat, where he played three different characters, and Ahd El Dam, where he brilliantly played the character of Selim Fayyad the young man who finds himself chased by a drug dealer who seeks to hire him as a hitman or he would lose his entire family forever. His new 8-episode thriller series, Qeid Maghool (Anonymous) was released in March 2021 on OSN. The Syrian drama features Bassel as a womanizer, whose affairs trigger the suspicion of police forces during crime investigations. Likewise, his recent drama Harb Ahleya premiered in Ramadan 2021. The series is directed by Sameh Abdelaziz, and stars Khaiat opposite the superstar Youssra. Most recently, Bassel has also graced the cover of GQ Middle East magazine's edition in April 2021 that was entitled “The Unshakable Confidence”..

On the other hand, Bassel took part in a number of films, including: Bab El Shams by director Yousry Nasrallah that screened at Cannes Film Festival and was selected among the 10 best movies for 2004 by Time magazine. He also starred in the musical film Selena by director Hatem Ali.
