Edward Akrout was born and raised in France from a Franco-British mother and a Tunisian father. He then lived in different countries, including Romania and throughout Latin America. He studied philosophy at The Sorbonne before attending Le Cours Florent in Paris for theatre, followed by the National Institute in Bucharest. He moved to England where he studied acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Since graduating in 2008 Akrout has made diverse contributions to theatre, film and television having worked everywhere from the West-End, to the BBC and HBO.

With versatile roles in theatre, film and television Akrout is earning global attention and recognition as a modern day renaissance man for his ability to craft complex characters across multiple mediums. Akrout is best known for his roles in high profile TV series and films including; BBC’s The Hollow Crown (co-starring Tom Hiddleston), ITV’s Mr. Selfridge (alongside Jeremy Piven), Showtime’s The Borgias (with Jeremy Irons), and Universal’s Dead in Tombstone (featuring Mickey Rourke).

There is an unmistakable connection between Akrout’s two chosen disciplines, for as an actor his job is to inhabit different emotional states, and as an artist he has an uncanny ability to capture in only a few strokes of the brush or pen, the fleeting emotions and personality traits of characters he comes across. In 2016, he participated with Lahd Gallery at Africa My Africa: Connecting Boundaries.
