Sulaf Fokharji with Aiman Zeidan
For the first time in her career, Syrian actor Sulaf Fokharji will star alongside prominent Syrian actor Aiman Zeidan in a new television drama series. The new drama, “Safeer Faouq Al Adeh” (Extra Ordinary Ambassador) is directed by Seif El Din Subai’ee.
Sulaf recently appeared in the Egyptian film “Halim...Hikayet Sha’eb” (Halim…A Nation’s Story). The film’s leading star was the late prominent Egyptian actor Ahmad Zaki, who tragically passed away before the film was completed.
Sulaf plays the role of “Jihan,” Halim’s mysterious lover, who comes from a well-known Egyptian family, although to their dismay the love affair does not end in marriage.
Sulaf stated that she was honored to participate in a film that tells the story of Egypt’s beloved Abdul Halim Hafez, and is grateful to Zaki and director Sharif Arafeh for their nomination.
