Mohamed Imam (Arabic: محمد عادل إمام;, 1974) is an Egyptian actor. He comes from an artistic family as his father is actor Adel Emam (also known as El Zaeem in Egypt). His brother is director Rami Imam.
Mohamed went to Jesuit school before he entered The American University in Cairo. He studied theater, and acted many roles in the university. One of them was Atawa in El Maghmati's play for the director Mahmoud El Lozy.
Imam played his first role out of the university when he took part in the Egyptian series Kanaria and Shorkah as Ashraf Sayed El Ousy (Hany Awaad Abd El Mohsen). Egyptian director Marwan Hammed selected him to play the role of Taha in The Yacoubian Building (2006), based on the novel of the same name.
Hassan and Marcus (2008) was his next major film. The theme of the movie is the tension between Muslims and Christians. This film features Adel Imam, Omar Sharif, Lebleba, and Hanna El Shorbagy. Imam played two characters, the Christian man Girgis Boulus and Emad Hassan, the son of El Sheikh Hassan. Hassan and Marcus was screened at the London Film Festival October 18, 2008 to a full house. Imam won a prize from the Alexandria International Film Festival in 2008 for his work in the film.
