Carlos Azar: “I have a music project in the works”


Lebanese actor Carlos Azar talks to BelleBeirut about his new music project as well as his latest works, in this exclusive interview.

He’s young, he’s talented, and he’s a promising singer. Carlos Azar, the son of the renowned Lebanese singer Joseph Azar, has established himself as one of the most prominent Lebanese actors on the scene.

He currently stars in the hit Ramadan series “Duo el Gharam” (The Love Duo) which is showing on LBC. Carlos plays a young aspiring singer who falls in love with a star (Maguy Bou Ghosn). The series has been praised by viewers and critics alike, and Carlos tells BelleBeirut all about it.

Carlos Azar and Maguy Bou Ghosn in “Duo el Gharam”.
1- You are currently starring in the new series “Duo el Gharam”. Could you tell us about the feedback you received on this new type of TV series?

I’m really happy to tell you all that we have received a lot of positive feedback ever since “Duo el Gharam” started showing on TV. This series is, as you’ve already mentioned, one of the first of its kind in the country, thanks to the big part that music plays in it. Personally, I prefer this kind of series, it’s actually the second time I’m in one, but this time my part is much more important.

2- You have an extraordinary voice and a large musical heritage thanks to your father. Are you thinking of getting into the music business any time soon?

I have a music project in the works, it’s not necessarily a CD or an album, but I’m working on this project and I’ll reveal it when the time is right.

3- How would you describe your relationship with your current co-star Maguy Bou Ghosn, with whom you’ve already sang on “Celebrity Duets”?

Maguy Bou Ghosn is a great friend. I know her husband and her family and we’ve known each other for a long time now. She is a very respectable and honorable woman that I really like working with.

4- Are you living a love story like the one we are watching on TV, if not would you like to?

This subject is not up for discussion. It’s my personal life, and there’s a reason we call it “personnal” (laughs).
