Ashraf Barhom (born 1979) is a Palestinian actor from Tarshiha, in Galilee, Palestine. Barhom grew up in Galilee in a small village called Tarshiha. He participated in many school plays before attending the University of Haifa, where he graduated with a B.A. in Theater and Arts. He has three sisters. Of his ethnic heritage, Barhom has said: When we attach ourselves to national identities, then we enter into a cycle of conflict. I didn't choose where I was born or who to be or what people would call me. I'm a hybrid, from a cultural perspective, but I don't think in these terms. I'm more simple than that. I'm a mammal who will live 70 years more or less, who believes in God and likes his life.
