Yasmine Al Massri, International Actress and Human Rights Advocate

Yasmine Al Massri is an international actress and human rights advocate who lives between Los Angeles, Paris and Beirut. Her short film Refugee, written and directed by Brandt Andersen, was shortlisted for the 2020 Oscars. You can enjoy her latest work as ''Morena,” the Middle Eastern vampire on Netflix's top animation show Castelvania.  She guest-starred in Law and Order's most acclaimed episode tackling the Harvey Weinstein scandal, and starred as twin FBI agents Nima and Reina Ameen who struggle in trying to be one person and fight terrorism in America in ABC's drama series Quantico. She also played Selima El Sharad, Blackbeard's love interest, in NBC's drama series Crossbones.

Before her success in the U.S., Yasmine was well-known in Europe and the Middle East as an international actress, contemporary artist and dancer. Having a Palestinian father and an Egyptian mother, she was born and raised in Lebanon, and then moved to Paris at the age of 20 to study multimedia and live performances at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts de Paris.

Yasmine’s first big break as an actress was in the award-winning Lebanese film Caramel, written and directed by Nadine Labaki that debuted at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, generating great critical acclaim and becoming the most successful Arab film to date.

In 2008, director Najwa al Najjar cast her in the lead role of her award-winning film Pomegranates and Myrrh, alongside Hiam Abbass. The film opened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 and Al Massri went on to win the Youssef Chahine Best Actress Award for her performance at the Rabat International Film Festival.

In 2010, Al Massri starred in Julian Schnabel's internationally acclaimed film Miral alongside Vanessa Redgrave, Hiam Abbass, Frieda Pinto and William Dafoe and in 2011, The Last Friday, the best film award winner of the Dubai International Film Festival.

Since starting MWE, she has produced a number of documentaries and TV shows for the international market and is currently stepping into the world of feature films. The daughter of a US Army General, Christina has learned that discipline, dedication, and honor are the key traits in developing and producing noteworthy and meaningful content. While she has her share of learning curves and living an adventurous roller coaster life, her determination in pursuing her dreams and goals and making entertainment that seeks to entertain, educate, and engage audiences is what pushes and motivates her even during times of crisis.
