Dhafer L'Abidine has always demonstrated strong performances and has collected an array of awards for his portrayals in some of the biggest Arab TV drama hits. Last Ramadan, L'Abidine has won the hearts and minds of audiences through Taht Al Sytara (2015), which boldly highlighted the struggle of people with drug-abusing past. He also starred in Oreedu Rajolan and 24 Kirats. In Ramadan 2014, he starred in Farq Tawqeet and previously took part in Neeran Sadeqa (2013), Vertigo (2012) and Zakerat Al Gassad (2010), which featured an array of A-list stars from across the region. Originally from Tunisia, L'Abidine also starred in the Tunisian feature film Akher December (2010) and Tunisian TV series Maktoob (2008).
L'Abidine recently finished shooting his role in his first Egyptian film Esmat Abu Shanab along with star Yasmin Abdulaziz. Alongside Hollywood star Michael Madsen, Dhafer L'Abidine has been selected to star in the sci-fi/romantic film South of Hope Street which is directed by American director Jane Spencer. L'Abidine also appeared in international film productions such as Children of Men (2006), Sex and the City 2 (2010), Centurion (2010), Black Forest (2012), Rise of the Footsoldier (UK) and the upcoming film A Hologram for the King, directed by Tom Twyker and starring Tom Hanks.
Dhafer L'Abidine has been honored for his entire works by Al-Bawaba News. Most recently, L'Abidine was selected by The Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) as a Good will Ambassador for Arts. This selection is part of the institution's first Goodwill Ambassadors' program take off, which has been officially revealed at the organization's new headquarters inauguration ceremony in Tunisia last Tuesday, March 2016.
