Paul Ahmarani (born 1972) is a Quebec actor. He was born from the union of two teachers, one from Cacouna, Bas-Saint-Laurent, Quebec and another from the Mediterranean coast. Ahmarani is known for his roles in the movies The Left-Hand Side of the Fridge (La Moitié gauche du frigo) and How My Mother Gave Birth to Me During Menopause (Comment ma mère accoucha de moi durant sa ménopause). People also remember him for his role in the first season of the television Star Trek parody Dans une galaxie près de chez vous. He released in 2005 a music album called "Portrait vivant" under the name "Paul Ahmarani et les nouveaux mariés" ("Paul Ahmarani and the newlyweds", see the External links section to listen). Outside his acting and singing career, Paul Ahmarani has also been an open supporter of Quebec's far-left party, Québec solidaire.[1] On 25 February 2010, Paul Ahmarani has signed, together with 500 artists, the call to support the international campaign for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against alleged Israeli apartheid.[2] In 2012, audiences have seen him in Martin Villeneuve's Mars et Avril, a science fiction film based on the graphic novels of the same name.[3][4]
