I finished filming my role with Eyad Nasar and director Ahmed Khaled in their new TV series, where I am only a guest in one episode. Currently I am preparing for a new series for next Ramadan, it's a new role for me, I've never done anything like it before but I promise it is going to be a surprise.
First I read the script of course, I try not to repeat myself and only pick new roles that will add to me. It's also very important for me to enjoy the role I am doing. At the end it's a package, because even if the scenario is well written and the role is interesting the work won't be complete without a talented director who has a good vision. I am still at the beginning of my career and I need to work with professionals who can guide me and teach me through their experiences. Also working with a good photographing manager, good actors, and a good production company. Generally speaking, it is important to choose according to the people you are working with because you are not going to work alone.
If I am not working, I mostly spend my time with my four-year-old daughter. I also like to read and hangout with my friends, but I try to give my daughter the priority because I spend lots of time away from her when I am filming, so I try to give her all my time and attention as much as I can when I am free.
I wish to work with a lot of directors like, Kamla Abu Zekry, Tamer Mohsen and Mohamed Amin, either as a director or scriptwriter, and Khalid Mar'y. I would love to work with superstars like Ahmed Elsakka, Menna Shalaby and Hend Sabry.
Of course, who doesn't dream of being globally known, but it's a hard step at the moment, specially that I still have a lot to offer as an actress in Egypt, before I start thinking about global recognition.
I think I've reached a very good level. I have made good movies and TV series and worked with huge names. I am happy that people like me. Yet I am very ambitious, there are a lot of roles that I dream to do, as I believe I still have a lot to offer.
I have been in love with acting since I was a kid and used to perform in school plays. I intended to become a professional actress so I studied theatre at the faculty of Arts. After graduation, I started doing advertisements, at the same time was following up with castings held for TV series and movies. The first role I've ever played was in a series called 'Kelmet Haa' with Mervat Amin and the same year I did another series called 'Tayra Wara'. The next year I did 'Karima Karima' for which I was granted an award as best rising actress for my role in it.
I don't think I've done it yet. I love all my roles, and I really enjoyed my roles in 'Karima Karima' and 'Helm Aziz' even though I am not a comedienne. Yes, I loved making comedies, yet I don't want to be labelled as a comedian, I want to be remembered for a variety of different roles.
Nelly is a beautiful artist and it pleases me a lot when someone tells me I look like her. But I think my personality is very different from hers and that's why I am not worried about that comparison. She has a great sense of humour with dancing, singing and acting talents. If I could do half the things she does I would be really happy.
I am very grateful for all the things I did, but I prefer not to appear much because many of the roles I am offered do not suit me at all, either because of the nature of the role or because I don't feel the character and sometimes because I am not comfortable working with the crew. I want to enjoy what I am doing. I love acting, I don't want just to do a role for the sake of it, and for the sake of appearance, I want to make something I am content with. Unfortunately, I don't get many offers to do the role I'm waiting for and work with the people I like.
