Youssef Wahby graduated from AUC’s School of Business with a bachelor's in marketing before deciding to pursue a career in acting, enrolling in several acting courses to hone his skills — including one taught by Luke and Ramsi Leiner and another by renowned acting coach Gerald James.

His first foray into acting came through the first season of the smash hit family series MAWDOU AELI, in which he played the role of a university student who is also one of Rana Raeis’s friends. The hit series starred Maged El-Kedwany, Mohamed Shahin, Taha Desouky, and Sama Ibrahim.

Then, he managed to catch more attention to his talent with his memorable appearance in Shahid’s top-viewed series LEIH LAA?!, in which he played Omar, a university student who has feelings for his classmate Yasmine, who doesn’t feel the same way. This one-sided love and Wahby’s convincing performance stirred audiences’ empathy for his character, allowing them to connect with him.

Aside from Wahby, LEIH LAA?1 starred Nelly Karim, Salah Abdallah, Aida Riyad, Moataz Hesham, Nadine, and Ahmed Tarek, with Nadine Khan helming the series that was written by Mariam Naoum’s Sard Workshop and scripted by Sarah El-Tobgy, Salma Abdelwahab, Iman Saleh, and Pola Thabet.

For the immeasurable amount of talent he showed in his previous work, he was chosen to star in the 30-episode TV series SOT WE SORA, featuring Hanan Motawie, Mourad Makram, and Naglaa Badr under the penmanship of Mohammed Suleiman Abdul-Malik and the helm of Mohamed Abdeltawab.

In this series, which is streaming on WATCH IT, he plays the role of Hazem, a university student and boxer with jealousy issues and toxic masculinity traits.

Establishing himself in a short span as a serious actor in a wildly competitive field, Wahby nailed his first role in a film with EL HAREEFA, in which he co-stars with Nour El-Nabawy, Ahmed Ghozzi, and Youssef Omar, with Raouf El-Sayed helming the film, which is now screening in cinemas to huge success.

As for his future projects, he is expected to be cast in a yet-to-be-announced drama that will premiere in the next Ramadan season.
