Jad Mallah, or @LeMallah as many people may know him on Instagram for his witty videos and contagious sense of humor, started out with entertaining interviews and sharing hilarious videos with friends and on Instagram.
While his family was hoping he would follow in their footsteps and grow to become a major part of their family business in Lebanon, he knew acting was his true calling. Eventually he really kicked off his career as a Lebanese actor when he made his way to Hollywood a little over a year ago.
His move to the beautifully, warm City of Angels was met with a few obstacles that helped shape who he is today. For starters, being Lebanese, Mallah struggled with picking up on the English language and understanding their puns, but soon enough, he was talking like a local. His background also didn’t give him many options when it came to auditioning for roles, but being type casted wasn’t the least of his problems. Leaving behind his loved ones during a major economic crisis in Lebanon only to be met with unprecedented times for the entertainment industry, all thanks to the pandemic was one of the greatest challenges Jad Mallah had ever faced. However, that didn’t get in the way of his passion and determination. He kept working at his goals and now takes pride is having worked on some of the most successful collaborations with world-renowned social media influencers, such as @tonioskits @twan @adamw @official_janina and @ninamariedaniele.
From a number of videos to comedic skits, it’s an inspiration seeing our Lebanese actor and social media personality striving in Hollywood and collaborating with such major social media personalities. It’s also motivating for all the Lebanese abroad, watching his videos and his journey and seeing that someone close to home and to their hearts is following his passion and building a successful life for himself.
Several of his most recent roles include:
· Being the main actor in Tonioskits & Christian Dior’s music video “ Hookiviri”
· Several videos alongside Adam Waheed for the well-known brand, Old Spice
· Starring in two short movies: Joe Riv and Peaches and the Cat
· Acting in the show Ten Hollywood, which will be streaming on Ten News on YouTube
Jad Mallah’s latest work is as a supporting actor in the feature film Hollywood Laundromat.
