Bio

Don Hany is an Australian actor best known for his television roles as Theo Rahme in White Collar Blue (2002-2003) and as Zane Malik in East West 101, from 2007-2011.

Like his character Malik, Hany is a first generation Australian whose father comes from the Middle East. His father, Taffy Hany, was born into a Muslim family. They came from Babylon, an ancient city of Iraq.

Don is sensitive to the complexities of being an immigrant. He sees his father enjoying the freedom of life in the West yet watching the news, suffering as Iraq is bombed.

Don spent many hours working on the character with the Detective Consultant, Hany Elbatoory, who advised Don on detective work, also taking Don into his family and to various mosques to help him understand the detective's relationship with the Islamic community.

Don has enormous respect for Elbatoory and says he has been a great inspiration to him.

He also played Detective Theo Rahme in the crime series White Collar Blue.
