Shahbaz Sarwar is a self-taught actor who’s performed in independent feature films and Danish national television series. Throughout his formative years, he’s performed in more than 50 short films and more than 20 theater plays.

Having learnt the craft through working with countless directors both experienced and novice, Shahbaz Sarwar is a versatile actor with a very flexible approach to the work.

Able to perform characters of both dramatic heft and comedic levity, Shahbaz excels in characters that delve into the darkest corners of the human psyche; characters with authority and calm in their tone and presentation; sarcastic characters with a sharp wit; emotionally subtle characters where the tension is bubbling right under the surface, and many more. 


The director is King or Queen on set and the actor is put on this (round) Earth to follow the directions of the top to facilitate the reality established by the writer of the piece. As an actor, Shahbaz is able to work with directors of all sorts, but prefers work where collaboration is key. 

From the earliest years working with improv, Shahbaz approaches all characters with the mantra “Work without shame”. The work up to a performance in front of a live audience or before standing in front of the camera is, like any inventor’s journey towards a genius invention, full of trial-and-error, because it’s the only way you can discover the path to truth.
