Walid Benmbarek

Actor

As a longtime actor, Walid predominantly filled supporting roles in the early years of his career, something which changed abruptly in 2006 when he became a lead character in the well-known Dutch television series Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden (2006-2008).

After two years Walid choose to move on to the big screen, where he portrayed leading roles in the short film Mo (2010), and in the feature films De Infiltrant (2014) and Broeders (2017), the last of which saw him nominated for Best Actor for the Dutch Golden Calf Award in 2018. 

On top of this, Walid has appeared in the film El Houb (2021), and has played leading roles in the films De Laatste Rit (2021), and Marokkaanse Bruiloft (2022), which was directed by Johan Nijenhuis. 

Returning to television, Walid has portrayed the role of ‘Adil’ in the much acclaimed series Mocro Maffia (2018-2023), winner of the Golden Calf for Best Series in 2021, and has repeatedly played a role in the Luizenmoeder franchise, which won the Zilveren Nipkowschijf award.

Most recently, Walid has played a leading role in Alles is nog steeds zoals het zou moeten zijn (2023).

He just wrapped for a lead role in the film Elixer, directed by Dana Nechustan.

Together with longtime friend Nasrdin Char, Walid initiated and produced The Life Trail for Videoland, in which he and Nasrdin stood by a group of youth, searching for direction in life.
