    Tahar Rahim From "The Serpent" Has Me Feeling Some Type Of Way And Insist You Check Him Out

    You're welcome.

    If you've watched The Serpent on Netflix or BBC iPlayer by now, you'll be familiar with one Tahar Rahim.

    The 39-year-old French-Algerian actor plays '70s serial killer Charles Sobhraj, which, y'know, doesn't exactly endear you to him. But then, I did some ~entirely innocent~ research on the cast of The Serpent and that's when I first clocked it – Tahar is a total fox!!!

    Yep, I googled Tahar Rahim and without the terrible hair and the chilling sociopathic energy of his character in The Serpent, I think we can all agree that is ONE FINE MAN.

    Then he appeared on The Graham Norton Show and my crush skyrocketed into the stratosphere because he is just SO CUTE and he seems so lovely!

    Before The Serpent, Tahar was probably best known for starring in the 2009 award-winning French movie A Prophet as main character Malik El Djebena. He also played FBI Agent Ali Soufan in The Looming Tower, and Judas in the film Mary Magdalene alongside Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

    He also speaks multiple languages and can turn his (mouth?) to a ton of different accents including Corsican, Arabic, French, and Scottish Gaelic. I mean, WHAT A MAN.

    And, oh yeah, he appears he shirtless SEVERAL TIMES in The Serpent, and he's totally stacked.

    Tahar actually had to undergo a lot of physical training before filming The Serpent because the real Charles Sobrahj was pretty obsessed with his looks. Tahar had an intense regime to stay fit and let's just say, it paid off... handsomely.

    TBF, it seems like I'm not the only one with a major (Ta)hard-on...
