Every year, Ramadan TV series introduce us to new acting talents.
This year, our focus is on young Moroccan actress Jihan Khalil, who most of you will recognise from the reality TV talent show "Arab Casting."
The show was a competition which sought to find the next big Arab actor or actress, and Jihan was crowned the winner.
Jihan's prize was to star alongside Egyptian actress Ghada Abdel Razek, who was a celebrity judge on the show's judging panel, in "Al Khanka."
"Al Khanka" is an Egyptian drama based on a true story about a teacher called Amira (Abdel Razek), who is accused of molesting her student and is sent to a mental hospital.
Jihan plays a supporting role as Egyptian actor Majed al Masri's wife.
She does a great job portraying the role of a bullied, miserable wife, considering that this is her first proper acting role in a series that's being watched by millions across the Arab world.
Jihan is now preparing to start shooting her second TV series, "Al Haramlak," which consists of 200 episodes, which is another gift for Jihan for winning "Arab Casting."
