Speaking about his role with Vanity Teen Adam opened up, “I know this experience will be useful to my career in the future. The fact that I had the chance to work with actors who have more experience and notoriety, but at the same time, they’re not older than me, helps me gain maturity and helps me realize this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
It may only be one season, but it’s a lot, and they made me feel like I was one of them.”
Adam Nourou Net Worth

While interviewing with Vanity Teen, Adam revealed that his acting career began at the age of 10 when he was spotted by an agent. He doesn’t have an elaborate career but within a short period, he was able to reach the height of success only few can reach. He started his career with Turf in 2013.
Adam then appeared in 2015 I’m All Yours. However, 2020 Adu became the biggest break of his career. In Adú, a drama about immigration that aspires to 13 statuettes, Nourou plays Massar, a Somali teenager who meets the boy protagonist Adú and together they become inseparable and try to flee to a place where they can have opportunities to improve their lives.
Adam joined the shoot out of sheer conviction, despite not knowing a word of Spanish. He’d signed up with a casting agency and had to go from France to Spain to meet with the director. He claims that his character, the young man who becomes little Ad’s lone hope in his adventure to reach Europe, drew him in with a message of solidarity.
This is Nourou’s first major part; he had previously only worked on modest projects in his home country and is now known for his ability to portray the drama of many young Africans.
In this short career, he has worked with the likes of Gerard Depardieu, Lucien Jean-Baptiste, Vimala Pons, and Stephanois Mehdi Jaadi. The role of Massar earned his Goya Prize in Spain in 2021. He told VanityTeen, “I’m so proud of myself for this award, it’s a big accomplishment, and I hope it is the first step to a big ascension by the grace of God.”
Besides acting, Adam also played Rugby but confirmed that he had to stop because he had to film Adu.
