FX New Series ‘Tyrant’ Is This Summer Must Watch


When my other half told me ‘You HAVE to watch this new show called Tyrant’ I was unsure if I really wanted to embark on a middle eastern adventure for the summer. After a couple of days, he ‘tricked’ me into playing on-demand the series premiere on our television while I was relaxing on the sofa – doing a few meaningless things on my phone. Not considering myself as the tyrant of our home, at that precise moment I had no choice but to watch with one eye.

Little did I know 5 mms into the show my phone was already long forgotten next to me … an hour later I only grabbed my phone to check when episode two will be airing!

Here is what you should know about Tyrant:

‘Barry Al-Fayeed is a California pediatrician who also happens to be the second son of a Middle Eastern dictator. Barry reluctantly agrees to return home with his American family for his nephew’s wedding.’

What can I tell you about Tyrant?

Well nothing! You simply HAVE to watch. Trust me your only problem with this new series will be to wait until tuesday night for episode 2!


Let’s talk about the gorgeous cast!

British actor Adam Rayner stars as Barry Al-Fayeed, there is something sexy and charismatic about this actor, which is one more reason to enjoy Tyrant. His wife Molly is played by Canadian actress Jennifer Finnigan. Their 2 children are played by 18-year-old French actor Noah Silver and Texan beauty Anne Winters.
