Rania Youssef is sticking to TV this year, and here's why
If it ain't good, she ain't gonna do it. Rania Youssef likes to keep things spicy, we all know that, and quite frankly no well written scripts were sent her way this year. That's why we'll all have to stay glued to the tube to see that sassy face. No big screen Rania for us this year.
The Egyptian actress will be starring in two Ramadan shows again, giving us as much drama to chew on as we can throughout the holy month.
According to the Middle East news portal Elaph, Rania said she takes her time before giving her approval to any role she is offered and that her taking part in two different television dramas for the coming Ramadan season was not something she had planned but her was a result of her desire to present unique roles and achieve success.
At first, Rania had wanted to star in only one drama this year since last year her double Ramadan features left her completely exhausted, but this year she had already given her approval to star in the drama "Al Sandouq Al Aswad" (The Black Box) before she was offered a leading role in the second drama "Al Wasaya Al Sabah" (The Seven Requests).
Rania said she is greedy when it comes to acting and when she read the script for the second drama she could not resist fulfilling those "Seven Requests", which is a black comedy about seven siblings. She plays the starring role as the oldest sister who attempts to gather her brothers and sisters to execute the will of their father.
