Revealed in 2017 during a casting for a certain video clip, Dali Benssalah continues to gain notoriety. Logical, when you have talent and charisma to spare, to the point of making Cary Fukunaga want to cast him for “Dying can wait”. Currently playing in “My brothers and me”, we met him so that he could tell us about his career.
Dali Benssalah, at full speed
Since its luminous revelation in the clip Territory of The Blaze, released in 2017, the public became familiar with Dali Benssalah, a monster of physical presence and charisma. And, if the cinema gods want it, a future great actor in French cinema. And further still, his talent should not only be expressed in our only national cinema since it has already crossed its borders, and with the manner! Indeed, he is a very present antagonist in To die can wait, in the role of Primo, henchman of Blofeld then Safin.
Currently showing My brothers and me, a film by Yohan Manca which he notably co-stars with Judith Chemla and Sofian Khammes, Dali Benssalah is equally at ease in super-productions as in auteur films. We took stock with him on his career, in three films and a series (video at the top of the article).
Of Territory at My brothers and me
To begin with the music video of a music group would seem almost anachronistic today, where the video supports seem in infinite number to show his talents. But the clip Territory, multi-award-winning and widely celebrated, sublimated by the silent but fascinating presence of Dali Benssalah, in 2017 had this double effect: increasing the popularity of the electro group The Blaze and above all revealing the young actor, then 25 years old.
Then follow the participation in projects, the sizes of which grow naturally. This is how it is found in 2019 in The Savages, Canal + series co-created and produced by Rebecca Zlotowski. An experience followed very quickly by his casting for the 25th James Bond and, after this very successful foray into an international super-production, the role of Abel in the luminous My brothers and me. A young actor to follow, and who does not seem to have limits.
