Carmen Lebbos (Arabic: كارمن لبّس‎; born 22 February 1963)[1][2][3] is a Lebanese actress who has worked in film, television and the theater since 1981. She has been in several television series and movies including Ziad Doueiri’s West Beyrouth[4] and Josef Fares’s Zozo.


Carmen Elias Lebbos was born in Beirut to a working-class family. In an interview discussing Ziad Rahbani Carmen maintained that he was simply the man she once loved, adding that "never, during all the 15 years of being together 24 hours a day, did I regard Ziad in the light other people saw him in. To me he was the man I loved and lived with and drank coffee with every morning... And that is that.”[5]

She played with Laura Ramsey a major role in Whatever Lola Wants directed by Nabil Ayouch, where she plays the role of a famous forgotten Egyptian dancer called Ismahan.[citation needed]
