About Walid Toufic
Walid Toufic, born Walid Toutounji, grew up with his Sunni family in Tripoli, Lebanon. He later relocated to western Beirut and lived in the residential area of Ibn Rashd Street. His first oud tutor was the blind Amin Azar. During this period, Toufic worked to raise enough money for his music lessons.
In 1973, Toufic participated in the Lebanese talent show, Studio El Fan. His success in this show was his first step towards stardom. He was described as "the beginner who performed like a star". Toufic became popular and made his big break in Egypt. His acting career began soon afterwards where he starred in movies with various Arab stars, including Farid al-Atrash, Mariam Fakhr Eddine, Madiha Yousri, Samir Ghanem, Laila Elwi, Duraid Lahham, Hoda Sultan, Saeed Saleh, Raghda, and Athar El-Hakim, among others.
