Jamal Suliman (Arabic: جمال سليمان‎) is a prominent Syrian-born producer, director and actor of television, film, and stage. Suliman was born in 1959 in the Syrian capital of Damascus. Suliman studied at the acting department of the Higher Theatrical Arts Institute in Damascus. He started his career acting on stage and producing television series. Suliman then continued his studies in Britain and obtained a Masters degree in theatrical studies from Leeds University. He is currently married to Rana Mohammad Salman, daughter of ex-minister of Syria, Mohamad Salman. They have a son named Mohammad.


He returned to Tripoli as a professional actor in the mid-1980s, starring in many successful television series, coming into prominence with the 1995 historical television series of Salah Al-din, depicting the life of the great Muslim leader Saladdin. Suliman also had roles in a few films, but has preferred to use the television as his main medium for stardom. Suliman's popularity and fame spread to the wider Arab audience on his selection to play a prominent role in the late Ahmad Zaki's movie Halim. This role in the Egyptian cinema, known as the "Hollywood of the Middle East", gave Suliman further horizons on which to expand on, upon which his starring role in the Egyptian television series Hada'eq el-shaytan (Gardens of the Devil) has made him an Arab cult hero in terms of television. On the whole, Suliman received rave reviews for his acting in the series, his role involving having to accustom himself to the Sa'eedi accent and traditions (region of Upper Egypt with a distinct dialect of Arabic involved).

Despite this, Suliman also received criticism from a number of Egyptian critics, journalists and actors alike, claiming that many Egyptian actors would have happily and effectively taken on this leading role in the Gardens of the Devil. Suliman had been quoted to saying that his determination to act in the Egyptian television had increased ever since criticisms were leveled against him.

On a humanitarian level, Suliman was selected as an ambassador of the United Nations Population Fund in 1999.
