How old is Emilio Sakraya?

Emilio Sakraya is 27 years old. He was born on June 29, 1996, in Berlin, Germany. His birth sign is Cancer and while his birthplace confers on him the status of a German citizen, Emilio Sakraya has Serbian and Moroccan roots. His ethnic identity is mixed.

His mom, Meryem Moutaoukkil, is a Moroccan citizen, while his father is a Serbian citizen. The Sakrayas moved from Morocco to Germany before they had the actor in the German capital of Berlin a few years after moving to the European country. Not much is known about the actor’s Serbian father and Moroccan mother, including what they do for a living and whether they had any other children together besides the talented actor. 

Several accounts of the actor’s early life do, however, confirm that his parents separated when he was young and went on to marry different people. Those subsequent unions produced several as yet unidentified half-siblings for the actor who maintains a close relationship with both parents despite their separation.

Aside from the rare occasions where the Tribes of Europa star gets to visit his mother’s North African country, Emilio Sakraya spent most of his formative years in Berlin. However, knowledge of the details of his formal education background is quite limited in the sense that so far we can only confirm that the 27-year-old actor received his high school diploma from Annie Heuser Waldorf School. Whether he has a college degree is a question only the actor and those closest to him can answer at the moment.

The young actor had an eventful childhood filled with a lot of activities and hobbies that included singing, karate, kung fu, and parkour. As a youngster, he participated in the German Full Contact Karate Championships twice and emerged victorious on both occasions.

He showcased his acting abilities from a very young age

Aside from music and various forms of martial arts, Emilio Sakraya also exhibited early acting potential and eventually became involved in the acting world from the young age of 9. He began by appearing in various theatre productions before making his on-screen debut at the age of 14 in 2010. He played Emilio Moutaoukkil in the 2010 movie Time You Change.

That was just the first step to what has become a thriving career in the movie business. Emilio Sakraya’s IMDb page shows that he has more than 30 movies and TV series credits to his name. One valuable virtue that permeates through the roles that Sakraya has taken on over the years is the fact that he can adapt to any given role regardless of the challenges that come with those roles.

Some of his notable movies and TV series appearances include Bibi & Tina: Perfect Pandemonium where he aptly interpreted the role of Tarik Schmüll. The German actor has also contributed to the production of several blockbusters, including 4 Blocks (2017-2019), Rock My Heart (2017), How To Be Really Bad (2018), Cold Feet (2018), Tribes of Europa (2021), The Salvation of The World as We Know It (2021).

Emilio Sakraya plays a starring role in the ongoing action, drama, and fantasy series Warrior Nun which began airing in 2020. His most recent acting works can be seen in Lieber Kurt (2022) and Rheingold (2022). The dream of every actor and actress is to work with co-stars who push you to become better than you were before you took up the role and Emilio has had that in spades, particularly on the set of Tribes of Europa and Warrior Nun where he worked alongside stars like Robert Finster, Oliver Masucci, Melika Foroutan, Alba Baptista, Toya Turner, Tristan Ulloa, and the legendary Joaquim de Almeida.

Emilio Sakraya is also a model and a singer

Emilio Sakraya’s lithe physique and well-proportioned abs provide him with the tools to be a model and he has utilized that career path a few times in his lifetime. His love for music has also seen him work on and produce several music videos, including All the time in the World (2019), Do you have time (2019), and I’ll find you (2020).

The actor’s musical abilities have been put to good use and in addition to the myriad singles he has released since making his musical bow in 2019, Emilio Sakraya released his debut album, Red Sand, in 2020.

How tall is Emilio Sakraya?

The young actor is a few inches taller than the average German man.

At 5′ 11¾” (1.82 m), Emilio Sakraya is taller than the average German male and actor who reportedly stands at 5 feet 10 inches (178 cm). His height places him in the company of, or slightly under above 6 feet tall actors such as Gotz Otto (6 ft 5 inches, 197 cm), Curd Jurgens (6 ft 3 inches, 192 cm), Max Riemelt (5 ft 10 inches, 178 cm), and Jurgen Prochnow (5 ft 11 inches, 182 cm) amongst several others.

While a height advantage might not be crucial to the success of any actor, it has been proven again and again that slightly taller actors are more likely to land leading roles at a movie audition than shorter ones. Hence, it is safe to say that Emilio Sakraya is always in a prime position to land juicy roles. 

Other aspects of his body measurements include his 85 kg (184 lbs) low-fat weight and the measurements of his chest, biceps, and waist which stand at 42, 15, and 32 inches respectively.
