Conquering Screens Big and Small
2003 saw Junes in New York, mastering method acting. His dedication paid off when he starred in “The Man Who Killed Castro,” capturing attention at global film festivals.

Zahdi’s artistic tentacles reach far. He’s shared the stage with Jennifer Lopez, choreographed for “Ride Along 2″, and his music collaborations have topped charts. Viral YouTube sensations with over 75 million views bear testament to his electric charm. Junes elaborates, “Acting will always be my main craft, but music and dance are integral to my journey.”
Visionary Writer and Groundbreaking Producer
Junes’s film “MSOTG” garnered him nine “Best Lead Actor” accolades, propelling him into producing and screenwriting. He’s driven to create impactful, thought-provoking content. “I strive for honesty and enlightenment in my projects, aiming to dispel prejudiced notions,” he passionately states.
