Hameed Sheikh (Urdu: حمید شیخ) is an actor and producer from Pakistan. Born in Quetta, Balochistan in 1969, Sheikh began his career in local theatre and school productions, before moving into drama with Pakistan Television (PTV).
In 1984 he appeared in the award winning drama Naqab Sang, but then returned to the theatre before playing the lead role in the television film Pezwan. Sheikh became well known for his roles in the PTV series Zangeer and Wapasi, and in 1995 he both starred in and produced the acclaimed PTV drama Kal with Jamal Shah.
Many leading roles followed and Sheikh became a recognisable figure in Pakistan, but his love for producing also led him in new directions. In 2001 he worked for CNN as a free lane producer, cameraman, and translator alongside veteran reporter Nic Robertson, and he was the line producer for a Malaysian film, Qasi and Leila. He also began making his own films, including “Holy Sinner”, a short film about the Taliban. But film roles still provided inspiration, and he continued to work alongside Pakistan’s most renowned television and film directors on various drama serials, including the films Wapsi kay baad, Ishq[disambiguation needed] and Matti.[disambiguation needed]
