Brahim was previously largely a stage actor and her biggest on-screen role prior to 'The Swarm' was in the series 'Black Spot', which focuses on what unfolds when a police chief and an eccentric new prosecutor investigate a string of grisly crimes and eerie phenomena in an isolated town at the edge of a forest.

He has also starred in the movie 'Fast Convoy' which centers around a convoy shipping cannabis in southern Spain.
