5 Egyptian Actors You Love But Have no Idea why They Suddenly Vanished

Published

on

Behold, the list that takes you on so many throwbacks, only to enlighten you on what happened since those days have passed. We all have actors that we once loved so damn much but suddenly were forced to never see them act again for unknown reasons. Here are 5 of the most remarkable actors that fall under the category of Where Are They Now?

1. Gamal Ramsis


Actor Gamal Ramsis became famous for two things; first, his role as “Lucy” in the comedy hit Esha3et Hobb in 1961. Second, the rumors that at some point spread like fire that Ramsis was actually the famous Egyptian spy “Raafat El Haggan” in real life. The rumors were later on discredited by Al Ahram News. Although Ramsis rose to fame impeccably fast, he only ever acted in 2 films. The actor passed away in 2001 in the U.S. at the age of 80.

2. Mohamad El Tohamy

And who could ever forget our beloved hero “Barayez” from the film Film Thaqafi in 2000 and his most famous line “El 3eib fel nezam”? We fell in love with Barayez for being so chill and mysterious in the film. Unfortunately, Tohamy only appeared in 7 films from 1993 to 2000. After disappearing for 15 years, Tohamy made an appearance in 2015 in the TV series Zawaj Bel Ekrah but hasn’t been scene in any other projects since.

3. Seif Abo El Naga

Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t remember the scorching hot brother from Emberatoreyet Meem in 1972. Although, this role was supposed to mark the start of a remarkable acting career, Abo El Naga decided not to repeat the experience again. If you didn’t already know, Seif Abo El Naga is Khaled Abo El Naga’s older brother. Finally, after decades and decades of waiting, Abo El Naga decided to grace us again with an appearance in 2014’s From A to B.

4. Hanan Al Tawil

Not a lot of people know that “Miss Ensherah” from El Nazer was a transsexual woman, something that unfortunately was the cause of a lot of criticism, ridicule and bullying for the actress. After starring in big blockbusters in the early 2000s and becoming one of the most beloved comedians of our generation, Hanan was found dead in her apartment in 2004. The cause of death is unknown until this very day, but many speculate that Hanan took her own life.

5. Hala Shiha

At some point, Hala Shiha was everybody’s favorite girl-next-door. She was fun, playful, dramatic when needed, quirky and certainly, a good actress. The actress decided to leave the scene for good in 2005 after her last role in Kamel El Awsaf. She went on to marry actor/singer Hany Adel, briefly before divorce came in action. Hala then went on to wear the Niqab, marry a canadian muslim man and become an Islamic preacher.

Rami Malek’s nomination for a Golden Globe, leaves us once again feeling proud! 

Rami Malek got nominated for a Golden Globe award as Best Actor in a Motion picture- Drama, for his role in this year’s hit, Bohemian Rhaosody, as Freddie Mercury. The movie is also nominated for the Best Motion Picture, but we all know who we will be rooting for during the awards, Rami Malek! The Egyptian heritage, who got to perform such an iconic role in a movie recommended by the whole world. 

Malek explained during an interview that in order for him to nail such a role, he actually watched Mercury’s original 1985 Live Aid performance more than 1.500 times! Talk about persistence ladies and gentlemen, can we be more any proud? 

He also added: “That’s something we tried to get move for move, even just gesture for gesture perfectly.

“It felt like I had it in my bones and I didn’t want to keep going back to it. It felt like sometimes you would lose a little bit of the authenticity if you tried to nail it so perfectly.” Rami Malek is nominated along with other outstanding celebrities, Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born, Willem Dafoe in At Eternity’s Gate, Lucas Hedges in Boy Erased and John David Washington in BlacKkKlansman. But we hope to celebrate his win nonetheless, and soon!

Heartthrob! Rami Malek Is Charming Us With His Broken Arabic

Published

on

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate Egyptian-American superstar/heartthrob, Rami Malek, who seems like he’s going to keep charming us with his broken Arabic every once in a while.

Last year, a BBC Arabic interview by Husam Sam Asi with Malek went viral as the Mr. Robot lead actor spoke in his parents’ mother tongue. It was the first time for us, Egyptian fans, to hear him casually utter words like shukran, masr, and Alhamdulillah; Arabic for thank you, Egypt, and, thank God consecutively. We were all surprised with our jaws dropping.

Now, after finally getting used to the actor’s accent, he is no longer hesitant to throw in an Arabic word here and there during his interviews with the Arab media. Lately, two more interviews began circulating on social media; one with Patrick Abboud and another one with Husam Sam Asi. He mainly talked about his new lead role in the biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, portraying none other than Queen’s legendary Freddie Mercury! Add to that some extra juice on Malek’s ethnic background, his expectations, and even things you probably never knew about Mercury!

He confessed that he thought he’d never make it in Hollywood as an Arab

Bearing Malek’s Egyptian roots in mind, the actor probably never thought he’d go beyond roles like King Tut’s for instance. He didn’t have high expectations for himself in the industry as it was not that easy for an Arab to make it big in a place like Hollywood.

Rami told Abboud, “For a long time I thought, ‘I’m not gonna get this. There’s no way I’m going to play the lead of a television series!” He then added, “I did not think that, that would be the case. It was not dominated by actors who look like me or you or had names like us.”

Today, Malek is proudly a Primetime Emmy Award winner, he also has earned himself the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. And now, his role in Bohemian Rhapsody might be Malek’s gate to even more nominations and who knows, he might land himself an Oscar!

Malek and Mercury actually have things in common

Turns out that Freddie Mercury is nothing but a stage name for Farrokh Bulsara. He was originally born in Zanzibar to Parsis parents and lived in both India and London. Later on, when he formed Queen, he legally changed his name to Mercury. Hence, they’re both immigrants who made it to the big-time when they thought they couldn’t!

Rami finally assured our speculations made about the lyric “Bismillah” in Bohemian Rhapsody

If you’re a hardcore Queen fan, Bohemian Rhapsody must be your favorite song! Out of all the lyrics, one word, in particular, caught the attention of every single Arab out there. We were all probably like, “did he just say bismilliah?” You probably had your doubts as well and speculated for years, but Rami Malek just put your doubts to an end. Yes, Freddie Mercury did mean to say bismillah, Arabic for “in the name of God.”
