ME AS AN ACTOR
"I was born and raised in Egypt. Since I was a child, I was fascinated by actors in movies and used my imagination to create different characters. I have always had the ability to perform others thoughts, feelings and actions. I find it easy to fantasize and find new ways of acting.
I began my career as an actor when I was 6-year-old. I performed various sketches in theater performances in the church, and continued to play theater in school. I decided to become a professional actor and studied at the Theater Institute in Cairo. During my studies, I participated in Egypt's largest independent theater group, Al-Warsha. My job was also to educate actors in theater, story-telling, dance and instruments. I also held workshops in various theater and film techniques.
I toured with Al-Warsha throughout Europe, including the Avignon Festival in France. I participated in project collaborations between Egypt and Sweden. My first participation in Sweden was in the performance Förvaret in Göteborgs Stadsteater. After that, I moved to Sweden. I have participated in various plays, films and TV series, including Johan Falk Spelets regler and Kodnamn Lisa. Most recently, I starred in the movie Boy from Heaven.
My goal is to always develop as an actor and learn new techniques and methods. I also do singing, drumming, belly dancing, stick-fighting and acrobatics.
