Born in Dubai in 1988, his parents divorced early in his life, so he grew up facing those struggles. But his Mom introduced him to art. "The first time I held a pencil and started drawing was when I was with her. The first time I had to recite a poetry sonnet in class, I was practicing at home with my mum. She was always there to support me. For that, I'm grateful."
Showing promise at a young age, he initially earned a scientific baccalaureate from the Lycee Georges Pompidou in France.
He went on to attend the Sorbonne University in Paris, majoring in Art History and Archeology, where he fell in love with acting. He graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Art History and Archeology and a Minor in Theatre.
Moving back to Dubai he started working in a gallery as an art consultant. After three years, his passion for acting overtook him, so he moved to the City of Angels, Los Angeles, CA, where he earned a Master's in Fine Art Acting from the New York Film Academy in Burbank. He is grateful to have been coached by people like George McGrath, Isabela Hofmann, Joe Basile, George Russo, and Ken Lerner, just to name a few.
He became acquainted with acting techniques from Stanislavski to Meisner, from Meisner to Lee Strasberg, from Strasberg to Chekhov, Chekhov to Grotowski. He was able to take something from all of these techniques in order to create his own style.
He began to get parts, then developed a great reputation. He began getting more work through referrals because people liked working with him.
He has now made a dozen short films. He wrote two films, directed one and even produced one, although he discovered he doesn't care much for producing.
"Life is about finding your purpose and embracing your journey. In my Acting class, I remember one of my teachers asked me: 'What drives you to your goal?' I simply told him, 'I want to be remembered and leave my stamp in this world. Even after I die, I can still affect people's lives through my films.'"

"Every time I pick a role, I always start by understanding the psychology behind that person and the way he perceives life, because acting is all about thought. Then studying the way he interacts with strangers, family members and co-workers."
In The Reverie, a psycho-thriller, he played a photographer named Michael Miller. An unexpected model shows up and insistently asks Michael if he can have his pictures taken. Michael is passionate about photography and decides to accept the stranger's offer.

"Marlon Brandon, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Paul Newman, Orson Welles, Alec Baldwin are some of the actors that inspired me for decades. They are character actors who can mold themselves and fill in the shoes of any fictional character and bring fiction to reality with their dimensional craft and their emotional depth.
"I strive to become like them and hopefully work with talent like them in the near future. These actors show the foundation of what an actor must strive to become, and the films we admire and respect today would never have reached their peaks without the involvement of these great actors."
Sebastian Faure has worked hard in order to pursue his passion for acting. "I'm consistently learning more about life and myself so I can improve my artistic craft."
