Information

Makram Jamil Khoury is an Israeli Arab actor, born 30 May 1945 in Jerusalem. He was the youngest artist and the first Arab to win the Israel Prize, the highest civic honor in Israel.
 
Makram is active in films, on the stage, and on television.

Makram J. Khoury was born in 1945, into a Palestinian Christian family, in the al-Sheikh Jarrah section of Jerusalem to his father, who was a judge, and his mother, a teacher. The Khoury family fled to Lebanon during 1948 Arab-Israeli War. A year later, they returned to what had become the new State of Israel. The family took up residence in the port city of Acre, near Haifa. Educated there and in the nearby village of Kufr Yasif, Khoury finished high school in 1963. He then entered the Hebrew University of Jerusalem but later dropped out and pursued a career as an actor.
 
Khoury trained in Israel and from 1970 to 1973 he studied for three years at the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London, England. He later became involved with the Cameri Theater in Tel Aviv and the Haifa Municipal Theater, continuing as a member of the latter for twenty years.

Makram has recently returned to Haifa following a year-long tour playing Tierno Bokar in Peter Brook's 11 and 12
