I am so happy to be part of this project and to work with such a wonderful team and such a talented director with a unique vision like Mohamed Hamdy. I really hope people like it because we all worked hard and paid a lot of efforts in this project.
What attracted me the storys strong dramatic twist, in addition to the directors unique vision that attracts audience from the very first episode. Not to mention the huge number of celebrities participating in it and the variety of characters theyre playing.
Mais is more than amazing, shes very funny and cooperative and helped me a lot with my role. We have a huge chemistry and she helped me a lot to highlight my best performance. Her role in Chess is unique and totally different and I believe it will be a turning point in her acting career.
I accepted my role in this movie for a lot of factors, from the participating stars to working with a huge director like Adel Adeeb to the movies comic nature, which is a genre Ive never done before. Above all my character is totally different for me, Ive never done anything like it before.
Despite the fact that I was playing a small role, I agreed to do it immediately as it turns the events upside down. This role marked a strong push for me in cinema. The movie was a huge hit and I received a lot of positive feedbacks for my role from family, fans and friends.
So much especially that shes such a complicated character that required a huge effort from my side. But once I met Elham Shahin and discussed the wide lines of the character with her I became more eager to perform this character.
Nothing in specific I long to do variable characters from drama to comedy and romance, this is how Ill prove myself as a talented actress. Only a lucky actor can choose a variety of different genres from what hes offered. At the end its all about what I add to the character I am playing and vice versa.
I am totally happy with these experiences; I didnt imagine that Ill enjoy both of them that much.
TV hosting and acting are totally different. As a hostess I am still Dana in front of the camera, but as an actress I turn into someone else, a different character with a different composition living in a different world. I need to prepare how Ill perform this character in front of the camera and build a distinctive character.
Talk shows and fashion programs. If I am offered a program in any of these genres Ill accept it immediately and will try to coordinate between it and my other projects.
Art doesnt have any boundaries or redlines. I have no problem presenting any bold roles as long as they are not explicit or inappropriate.
