Youssef Kerkour Career

Kerkour appeared as The Visitor in a Lapin Agile production of Steve Martin’s Picasso in 2001. Kerkour moved to England to continue his acting career after he was unable to obtain a visa to stay in the United States.

Kerkour appeared in the comedy-drama series Home, which premiered in March 2019 and ran for two seasons. He portrayed Sami Ibrahim, a Syrian asylum seeker who moves in with a middle-class English family in the series.

The role was inspired by the real-life experiences of Syrian refugee Hassan Akkad. Kerkour had not expected to be cast as Sami because the role was so different from the typecast violent characters he usually plays.

In 2020, he said:

“I spent my life playing terrorists. That’s my USP, that’s why I grew my beard. I’m a very big guy. I speak Arabic, so a big bearded Arabic man, there’s really one kind of part, traditionally. [Playing] Sami is the first time somebody has taken the chance and given me something more.”

For his role as Sami, Kerkour was nominated for Best Male Comedy Performance at the 2020 British Academy Television Awards, losing the award to Jamie Demetriou (for Stath Lets Flats). Kerkour is slated to appear in a film adaptation of The Alchemist, alongside Sebastian de Souza and Tom Hollander.
