Mickey Casab is a second-generation Syrian American who
became an actor because of what happened to him directly after 9/11. His parents told him not to tell anyone he was Syrian for fear of what could happen to him. His friends, knowing he was Syrian, talked about having concentration camps to weed out the “bad” middle easterners.
He's grateful that now tv and movies are showcasing such a diverse group of people coming together. Because, that’s why he's an actor. To help celebrate those differences, not be terrified of them.
He graduated from the Academy of Art University with an MFA in MPT Acting under the direction of famed actress Diane Baker.
