Tahar Rahim stars in in "The Eagle," alongside Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Donald Sutherland and Tahar Rahim, as the Seal Prince.

Tahar Rahim was born and raised in Belfort, in northeast France. He studied at a sports university in Strasbourg, followed by a year studying information technology and mathematics at a university in Marseille, before completing a three-year degree in cinema at the University of Montpellier.

In 2005, he starred in a low-budget fictionalized documentary, "Tahar l'etudiant" ("Tahar the Student"), directed by Cyril Mennegun. He then moved to Paris to pursue his acting career, beginning with stage work.

Rahim's first feature film was "Àl'intérieur" ("Inside"), directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, with Béatrice Dalle. He then starred in the French miniseries "La commune," directed by Philippe Triboit and written by Abdel Raouf Dafri.

His performance in the lead role of Jacques Audiard's "Un Prophete" brought him international attention when the film world-premiered at the 2009 Cannes International Film Festival. The movie received acclaim and honors worldwide, including the Cannes Grand Prix award; and Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Foreign-Language Film. Rahim earned two César Awards (France's Oscar equivalent) for his performance, Best Actor and Most Promising Actor; and also won the European Film Award for Best Actor.

His upcoming films include Lou Ye's "Chienne" ("Bitch"); Ismael Ferroukhi's "Free Men"; Joachim Lafosse's "Nos enfants" ("Our Children"); and Jean-Jacques Annaud's epic "Black Thirst," with Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto and Mark Strong.
