Karim Darwiche is a young actor based in Switzerland.
In the summer of 2019 Karim performed in the feature film "Sami, Joe and Me" as Denis Susic. It was his first project, so he was able to gain valuable skills and knowledge about the film process. This professional experience on set gave Karim the insight into the industry and made him realize that acting was his life passion. The movie premiered at the Zurich Film Festival in 2020 and won the "Audience Award".
After the movie, advertising jobs for Sunrise, Migros Bank, Digitec, UBS or SFS followed. Next to that, Karim can also be seen in a prevention campaign about bullying by "Sucht Schweiz" and in some other commercials.
Karim continues his education in the performing arts. He regularly attends courses and workshops with industry professionals to develop and hone his craft.
In addition, Karim pursued IT training, which he completed in 2021.
In his spare time, Karim enjoys going to the gym or staying active jogging and skiing outdoors.
