His parents, Fouad Dirani and Sobhia Dirani traveled by boat from Lebanon to Australia in 1969, without knowing a word of English. His father struggled to make a living; to provide a good education for Firass and his two older brothers.

As a teen, Firass worked as a check-out operator at his father's convenience store in Blacktown, where he would do it all: from unpacking bread and bagging groceries to sweeping the floor.
His parents really wanted him to do the Law degree, and Firass even got the entry notice for Business Law at the University of Western Sydney. However, despite a lot of shouting, that went by in the house, it was clear in his mind that he wanted to do the acting, instead. So, he went to the performing arts school, ACTT, in 2001, and later in 2014, he relocated to New York City, where he studied at the Atlantic Theater Company.
Married Or Dating Girlfriend?
Back in January 2015, Firass was rumored to be dating Camilla Franks, a kaftan designer, and the speculated couples sharing snaps of one another in their social media only added fuels to the existing tales.
The pair took to Instagram plenty of cozy-shots from the 2015's New Year's Eve and New Year's Day celebrations, one of which included them hugging, as the clock stopped at midnight.
Days later, speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Firass had coyly confessed– "We may or may have not," referring to the midnight kiss.
At the same time, denying the romance between them, he added that he and Camilla were just friends– they partied together, and that was it. Further, he revealed how both of them had been friends for twelve amazing years and went to acting school together.
