Haythem Noor was born in Cairo, Egypt and raised in Italy. He moved to the US in 1995. Exposure to acting came to Haythem at a very young age from watching Arabic movies with his mother.
"At the age of five I learned that a lot of the movies I watched with my mom starred her brother, Kamal Al-Shennawi, who is considered legendry by many throughout the Arab world". Later when his brother Amr Youssri also started to take acting seriously this gave young Haythem all the motivation he needed to get his own feet wet.
Haythem's debut performance came at the University of Alexandria at the age of 14. With the progression of time, he learned more about this craft with various acting gigs and with proper training at the Atlantic Theater Company and Esper Studios.
Haythem has a BA in Economics from CCNY. He decided to peruse acting professionally in 2002. He has recently appeared in Law & Order, Without a Trace, Third Watch, Law & Order - Special Victims Unit and more. In Misha Schulman's play, Desert Sunrise, he was described by The New York Times as "haunting and caustic".
