Saad Siddiqui was born in Pakistan. He turned to the Performing Arts and Martial Arts following the passing of his father, when Saad was 12 years old and living in Baltimore, Maryland. Saad is a champion martial artist: a three time Maryland State champion in Tae Kwon Do, a silver medalist at the Junior Olympics and qualified twice for the World Championships. He holds a 4th degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and practices other styles. Saad often performs his own stunts and fight scenes in his film and TV projects. He speaks several languages. Saad began his drama studies in high school in Columbia, Maryland; attending the same school Edward Norton graduated from. The combination of Martial Arts and acting provided him with a grounding and balance in his life that he hadn’t felt since prior to his father’s passing. Recently he’s had the pleasure of working with talented directors such as Ramin Bahrani on HBO’s highly anticipated Fahrenheit 451 (2018) and two time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”, “Django Unchained”) who directed Saad in his directorial debut in the upcoming Georgetown (2018). He’s also grateful to have collaborated with other award winning directors: David Cronenberg, Michael Offer, Stephen Hopkins, Ruba Nadda, Gary Fleder and Kari Skogland to name a few. Recently he was seen on TV as recurring characters on the CBS/ SyFy series “Incorporated”, executive produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and on the NBC series “Taken” opposite Jennifer Beals. He also guest starred on Fox’s new 24:Legacy (2016) in which he did his own fight scenes opposite Corey Hawkins and also guest starred on Hawaii Five-0 (2016).
