Amro Salama is a Sag-Aftra and AEA member who after spending 11 years in NYC and the last 9 years in Los Angeles, he finds himself pursuing his passion for performing in his home sweet home of Chicago. As the "Midwestern Mideasterner", he is also a local hire in both Los Angeles and NYC.
Amro's big break came while in New York thanks to Ed Zwick, working opposite Denzel Washington in The Siege as Tariq Husseini, innocent yet executed by Bruce Willis. He capitalized on this break and has appeared in numerous TV and film roles including Modern Family, Children's Hospital, Law & Order, Third Watch, General Hospital, My Name is Earl, Suite Life On Deck, Free Agents and more.
Amro credits his craft to Bill Esper of Esper Studios in NYC and, as a current Finalist at the world renowned Actors Studio in Los Angeles.
Having performed in numerous plays throughout the years, most notably, the role of Norman in SubUrbia earlier this year at Pacific Resident Theater, and the roles of Mohammed and Khalid in the Pulitzer Prize Nominated for Drama, Omnium Gatherum, performed at Theatricum Botanicum and, previously as the stand-by for the off-broadway production at Variety Arts in NYC. Amro is always looking to "fill his cup" on the stage and is looking forward to the great Chicago theater as well as NYC and California opportunities.
