Roukya Rhym Guissé is a Los Angeles-based actor, screenwriter, and producer.


Rhym - pronounced "reem” - was born in the North African country of Algeria to an Algerian mother and a father from the West African country of Mali.


She grew up in various countries, including the Ivory Coast before moving to Louisiana to study at the prestigious Baton Rouge Magnet, known for its award-winning performing arts curriculum. She went on to earn a Bachelor's degree in writing from Kutztown University. 


Upon graduation, Guissé completed a communications internship at the United Nations and later worked for the Philadelphia Tribune, America’s oldest newspaper serving the African-American community.

Rhym has gone on to build a prolific career in the entertainment industry and has worked in casting, physical production, creative development, and as a performer.


As an actress Rhym has a decade of experience in film, television and theatre. Her credits include ABC's How to Get Away With Murder and Miller Center for the Arts’ production of Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer winning Ruined.

Rhym’s ultimate goal is to create narrative features with female leads challenging the status quo. Her screenwriting has been a Semifinalist at the Atlanta Film Festival, and a Diverse Voices official Screenplay Selection.

Rhym continues to seek roles that challenge her as an African/Arab, immigrant, woman, and as an artist.
