Andria Tayeh is a woman of many talents. Her fame skyrocketed following the success of the 2021 Netflix mini-series, AlRawabi School for Girls. But beyond the glitz and glamour is the ever-so-humble introvert who’s about to embark on a blossoming career like no other.
Tayeh, who is half Jordanian-Lebanese has always dreamt of becoming an actress — a lifelong dream she never thought could manifest into reality one day. “I’ve participated in many school plays growing up, but never knew it could become my career,” she says as she joins Fashion Trust Arabia via Zoom from her home in Amman, Jordan. That ultimately changed when she got scouted for a role in Tima Alshomali’s AlRawabi School for Girls. “I applied for a different role at first, got called in about 8 times, until the director said, you should probably try out for Mariam,” — the character she would eventually play in the series and would ultimately push her to the centre of the global stage.
