Simon and Mohammed Subhi Duo Carries On
Egyptian actor Mohammed Subhi has chosen Simon, the star of his three most recent plays, to costar with him in the dramatic television series Fares Bila Jawad (Knight Without a Horse).
The series, written by Mohammed Baghdadi, is about political and social events in the years between 1850 and 1948. The scenes will be shot in a number of Arab and European capitals including France, Syria and Lebanon, and at the studios of the Information Production City.
Subhi told the London-based Al Sharq Al Awsat daily that he would perform 22 different characters in the series, which is centered on the character Hafez, whose nickname is Al Thaalab (The Fox). The fox lives out personal epics nobody else has ever achieved.
Subhi plays 22 characters in 30 episodes, wearing disguises to implement his plans. The occupation forces cannot capture him, because the well-disguised fox resembles the famous thief Arsene Lupin.
Subhi and Simon have developed from a theatrical to a TV artististic duo. They have performed in three plays including Lua’bat Al Sit (Lady’s Game), Sikkat Al Salamah (Safety Road) and Karmen, all within the theatrical framework and shot in a TV style.
The duo will also costar in the play Malek Siam (Siam’s King) along with Khalil Murcy and Abdulla Sharaf. Simon will perform the role of Anna, the royal family’s English teacher in Siam - Albawaba.com
