Fady El-Sayed is a British Egyptian actor who was born and raised in Islington, London, where he grew up playing football. Once he got into university, he studied a variety of fields, including media, drama, and psychology before making his first foray into acting with director Sally El-Hosaini in MY BROTHER THE DEVIL.

The film propelled El-Sayed’s name to instant fame and garnered him a Best British Newcomer Award nomination at the BFI London Film Festival, putting him on the radar of several international filmmakers, who cast him in a number of international films, including PENNY DREADFUL starring Eva Green, in which he played the role of a vampire; CLASS, which is derived from the well-known adventure series DOCTOR WHO; the TV drama RIVER, starring renowned Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård; A PRIVATE WAR, starring Rosamund Pike; and Danish film DANIEL by director Niels Arden Oplev.

El-Sayed’s most successful year to date, however, was 2020, in which he worked on four projects — the TV dramas BAGHDAD CENTRAL, LITTLE BIRDS, and the second season of GANGS OF LONDON, as well as the drama short ENDING.

Ever the in-demand actor, El-Sayed is currently working on a number of cinematic projects, including the two films FAITH and LONDON BOYS.

He was also officially selected as the face of Puma's Porsche Legacy Collection.

Fady El-Sayed recently wrapped up shooting both Netflix's Greek mythology dark comedy KAOS and the third season of GANGS OF LONDON. Additionally, he is set to appear in two international series — Apple TV's SLOW HORSES starring the Oscar winner Gary Oldman, and HBO's INDUSTRY.
