October 17, 2022

Welcome Alexander Abdallah to new–land. Alexander Abdallah is an Actor and Director originally from Uppsala, Sweden. After graduating from Theatre School in Malmö, he took on a number of roles in productions at Helsingborgs Stadsteater, before making his first steps towards directing with his debut short ‘Jag skiner inte utan er mina bröder’ (I Can’t Shine Without You, My Brothers), which depicts the Malmö shootings of 2009-2010. The film premiered at the Gothenburg Film Festival 2019 to great acclaim, winning awards including Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Music and the Audience Prize at that year’s Pixel Scania Film Festival.

Abdallah followed on from this initial success with another short, ‘Vi var barn då’ (We Were Kids), which premiered at the 2022 Gothenburg Film Festival, as well as a move into the commercial world, collaborating with Swedish jeweller Maria Nilsdotter on the short film ‘Dröm en Dröm’ (Dream a Dream). He has also continued to work as an actor, winning Best Actor at the 2021 Kristallen for his performance as Salim in Netflix’s ‘Snabba Cash’.

He was named Rising Star of the year at the 2022 Roy Awards.
