A Bit About Me

Tara Abboud is an emerging Palestinian-Jordanian actress who started her career taking part in various short films, including director Motaz Matar’s film Min Wara’ Albab and Tima Shomali’s film Log In. She landed her first leading role in director Amjad Al Rasheed’s Princess of the Mountains (2009) alongside actor Amer Alkhuffash, followed by 12 CM (2014) film by Zaid Khaled and Hayat (2019) by director Leen Awad, both of which are award winning.
At the end of 2020, Tara was selected as one of Screen International’s Arab Stars of Tomorrow at the Cairo International Film Festival. This came after her memorable performance in the Jordanian TV series Oboor (2019) which prompted star Saba Mubarak to nominate her for the starring role with her in the upcoming film Amira, directed by Egyptian director Mohamed Diab. In the film, which is an Arab-French collaboration, Tara plays the role of a Palestinian girl who was conceived while her father (played by star Ali Suleiman), was detained in prison.
