Hanan Turk passes out in front of the camera
During the filming of the scenes for her upcoming move “Hub Al Banat” (Girls Romance), Egyptian actress Hanan Turk suddenly became nauseous and fainted in front of the camera. Director Khaled Al Hajar was shocked when the actress fell and ran to her rescue as did the rest of cast.
According to the Egyptian daily, Al Akhbar, first aid measures were taken to make Hanan conscious once more in order to resume the shooting of the film. It seemed that the actress had fainted as a result of excessive fatigue and lack of relaxing due to her busy schedule.
Turk had recently announced that she will not be accepting any new roles until she completes her work in the film “Hub El Banat” (Girls Romance). The actress said she wants to be able to dedicate herself completely for the film. Hanan stressed that she does not want to be working on more than one film at the same time not wanting to be over exhausted making her incapable of offering her best.
Hanan had changed her mind on recent decision to back out of the film "Hub El Banat" (Girls Romance) alongside Egyptian actress Laila Ilwi. When Hanan had apologized from being able to accept the role previously, Laila made it a point to personally convince her to rethink her decision and join the crew of the film.
Turk has been nominated by director Safwat Al Qishery for the leading part in a new drama series "Al Qarar" (The Decision). The story revolves around how making certain decisions regarding social issues like divorce and separation affect the family circle and especially the children. The series is written by Amirah Abu Al Futouh and costars Egyptian actors Sawsan Badr, Tawifiq Abdul Hamid, Manal Salameh, Said Abdul Ghani, Ulfat Imam, and Shams.
Turk first burst onto the scene in 1991, as she co-starred with Nadia Al Gindi and Mahmoud Hemeida in "Raghba Motawahesh" (A Savage Desire). Since then, she managed to make her mark on Arab audiences. The twenty-six year old star was one of three children, managed to enter the acting world after years of intensive ballet courses that got her noticed by film executives. It was not until 1992, in Yousef Shahin's "Al Mohager" (The Emigrant) that Turk's talents became widely popular. -Albawaba.com
