Lebanese Aimée Sayah has loved the camera ever since she was young. So it’s not surprising the beautiful and talented Dubai resident known for her finesse (and gorgeous hair) can now proudly boast a versatile career. As well as making a name as a successful TV presenter, most notably as the former host of MBC’s “The Voice” and “The Voice Kids,” she is known for her flexible acting skills.
Most recently, Sayah, who has a Major in Journalism along with a Minor in Theatre from the Lebanese American University, has played the role of Mantoura in "Thawret Al Falaheen" (Revolution of the Farmers), the high budget series set in the early 19th century Lebanon. The star, who loves fashion and travelling, is also known for playing an Armenian girl in the 2017 film “Zafafian,” while her earlier work includes the role of Jelnar in the Lebanese series “Wa Achrakat Al Chams.”
