Lebanese actor Fadi Ibrahim died Monday morning at the age of 67 after a struggle with illness.

Ibrahim suffered a health crisis last November and was admitted to the hospital.

The Actors Syndicate in Lebanon asked for eligible blood and platelet donors to help him. 

Ibrahim's health deteriorated at the beginning of January, due to his diabetes, which led to the amputation of his leg. He was later transferred to intensive care in the hospital where he was receiving treatment and entered a coma 3 days ago.

His condition deteriorated after he contracted a blood infection as a result of dialysis, and was at risk of losing more organs. 

Reports also revealed that his treatment was expensive and required financial assistance.

Ibrahim was born on April 13, 1956, to a Lebanese father and an Australian mother.

In 1979, he began acting in the school scout troupe, which organized plays and sketches.

Ibrahim participated in the Nasser Makhoul folkloric troupe in the plays “El Kheer l'kadm” and the children’s play “The Story of Siti Umm Fouad.”

He made his small screen debut in the 1980 TV series “Al Motawahesh”, in which he presented the character of a foreigner due to his foreign features.

Afterward, he participated in many TV productions, including “Hekaya kol bet”, “Maa Arab Doctors”, “El Seham el Gareha”, “Albahth ean salah aldiyn”, “Imra'a Min Diaa”, and "Al A'sefa Tadreb Marratayn".

In addition to acting, Ibrahim worked as a translator for documentaries for Lebanon Television. 

He also worked as a makeup artist and traveled to Berlin to participate in beauty courses for professionals. He also had directing experience in two works.

Ibrahim participated in several Egyptian TV productions such as “Nagy Atallah Band", "Al Adham", "Taht El-Ard", and "Al-zaybaq".

In 2022, the late actor made his onscreen appearance in the TV series "Al Zaman Al Da'ea”.
