Nour Assaf – 10 Fun Facts

  • 1. When I got the call that I booked the role of “Samir” on Ghostwriter, I realized that the character had an Arabic accent, and about a few weeks prior to filming season 3 of Ghostwriter, I challenged myself to put on Samir’s accent in my daily life until I perfected it.
  • 2. The first acting job I ever booked was for a music video where I had to “make it rain” with fake money which I believed was real for how young I was. (I ended up secretly asking the director if I could keep some of the money, even after my mom told me not to.)
  • 3. My hometown is beautiful Beirut, Lebanon. Home to the best food in the WORLD! (in my opinion) (which is always right)
  • 4. Since I was young, I’ve been moving around the world from Lebanon to France to Turkey and finally America!
  • 5. My prized collection of Funko Pop figures of my favorite actors and actresses and their TV characters lies on the top shelf in my room.
  • 6. There was a time when I landed a horror movie gig and the make-up & wardrobe took hours to prepare my costume and painted my face to look as zombie-like as possible just for them to cancel the shoot! (check out the look on my Instagram)
  • 7. I am THE BIGGEST basketball fanatic and Lakers fan you know. Basketball is my passion, after acting.
  • 8. My favorite ice cream flavor and comfort food has to be rocky road ice cream. I really don’t know why it’s hated on so much, what’s there to hate in rocky road?!
  • 9. I am a HUGE sneaker-head. If you need to know anything about sneakers and designer shoes, I’m your guy.
  • 10. R&B music is the best music genre there is. Remember what I said about my opinion? (It’s always right) Music is my escape and safe place. It helps me focus and relax. If I could listen to music 24/7, trust me I would!

All episodes of Ghostwriter season three are now streaming on Apple TV+!
