Biography[edit]

Mhamed Arezki was born in Paris, France in 1984. His mother was of Kabyle descent and worked as a nanny. His father was a chef.[3] Mhamed always dreamed of being an actor.[4] At the age of seventeen he quit school and started participating in various acting courses.[4] His mother, knowing this was what her son wanted to do most, was very encouraging.[3] At the end of a five-day course in film and theater acting, he was spotted by an agent who then brought him to a casting call.[3][4] "I know, I have a lot of luck," He told Le Parisien in 2009.[3]

Career[edit]

Les Bleus[edit]

From 2006 to 2010 Arezki had a starring role in Les bleus: premiers pas dans la police, an action, comedy, drama about rookie cops learning the ropes. The first episode aired in France on 8 February 2006.[5]

Arezki played the role of clumsy, good-natured, career driven Lyès Beloumi. He was in every episode of Seasons 1 and 2. For the third season he took a voluntary sabbatical to leave himself open for other roles and to explore the possibility of doing a one-man show.[3] In 2010 he returned to Les Bleus for the fourth and final season.[6] Lyes Beloumi had been away training and returned with the rank of Commissaire and now had his own office.

In 2013 Arezki reunited with Les Bleus co-star Raphaël Lenglet for the first season of Candice Renoir, a France 2 police drama series starring Cécile Bois as Commandant Candice Renoir.[7][8] Lenglet and Arezki receive second and third billing respectively on French sites like Allociné.[9]
