Egyptian-born American actor Zeeko Zaki reached a lofty peak of his acting career with a role of Special Agent Omar Adom in the CBS crime drama series, FBI. His character as Omar provides him a rare opportunity of protecting American values as an officer from an Arabic background.
Zekko has been in the industry since 2012, and among others, he has credits in the titles like Six, 24: Legacy, Valor, and Escape Plan 2: Hades.
In the CBS series FBI, Egyptian-born Zeeko portrayed a recurring role of Omar Adom Zidan and developed a chemistry with Maggie Bell (played by Canadian actress Melissa Peregrym). The duo of Maggie and Omar dealt with personal situations and problems during the first half of FBI‘s inaugural season.
Though they got shipped as on-screen girlfriend-and-boyfriend, the duo affirmed that they do not want on-screen romance. Melissa even confirms that she and Omar are like brother and sister. In his January 2019 interview with Global News, Zeeko said:
It’s funny, everyone that’s not there for the entire ride wants [the romance]. A new director will come in and be like, ‘Maybe you guys are flirting in this scene?’ We’re always like, ‘No.’ I don’t know how Dick works in that realm. Right now, we’re definitely not, and you’ll see that in the upcoming episodes we’re establishing different things. But there are some moments coming up that Twitter is going to love.
Likewise, some of their fans even agree with their viewpoints of having no on-screen romance.
Wife/ Girlfriend In Real Life?
Like his reel life, Zeeko has no romantic connection behind the camera, that means, the FBI actor's details on his girlfriend is unknown. He has yet to reveal whether he is married or still a single. With the secluded information about his marriage, there are no precise details of Zeeko having a wife.
His mysterious love life often sparks his sexuality rumors as gay but Zeeko yet has not remained vocal on the baseless rumors, which signifies he probably is not gay.
