Son of actor and producer Igor Darbo, Arman was born in Paris, France and lived on at least three continents in his short life.

He acted in the Beijing TV series 3 Crazy Girls (2009) and My DV Diary.

He is well known for his recent stellar performance in the film And Then I Go (2017), where he played the role of a bullied junior high student Edwin who plots with his friend to ignite a school shooting. His love for acting has seen him land many other starring roles in films like Deep Sleep No More (2013) and Itsy Bitsy (2018) among others.
