Mem Ferda (born 30 October 1963 in London) is a British actor of Turkish Cypriot descent.[1][2]

Biography[edit]

Ferda was born in Chelsea, London in 1963 to Turkish Cypriot parents.[3] At the age of six, his mother took him to Cyprus, where his father was the Minister of Agriculture.[4] The family emigrated back to London when he was 12 years old, following an assassination attempt on his father.[1][4] Whilst studying, Ferda achieved two university degrees, a BSc Honors degree in Psychology and a master's degree in Business Administration (M.B.A.). He then began acting in television commercials and was eventually accepted and graduated from the renowned London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art with a Postgraduate Diploma in acting.[1][3] At a height of 6 ft 2' (1,88 Meter) and a brawler's physique he has become notorious for playing the roles of villains.[5]
