Wafa Amer injured
Egyptian actress Wafa Amr suffered an accident on the last day of filming her Ramadan drama series “Al Imam Mohammad Abdo.” The actress fell off a ladder and twisted her ankle.
Wafa bravely swallowed her pain in order to finish filming the last scene of the drama. Once she completed her scenes she went straight to her doctor, who advised her to take a two week rest and avoid any strenuous activity.
The drama, set in the mid nineteenth century, is written by Ayed Al Ribat and directed by Shukri Abu Ameereh. Wafa performs seven different songs in the drama and plays the role of Nowara, a singer at a local nightclub who gains notoriety in the music industry and amongst political circles.
Wafa announced that she has increased her wage from 7 thousand to 10 thousand Egyptian pounds per episode for any new television drama produced by the ‘Egyptian Media Production City.’ Wafa stressed that she will not accept any new role, unless she is paid the new wage she has set.
The actress made her decision after the success of her last television drama, “Milh Al Ard” (Earth Salt) alongside Egyptian actor Mohammad Subhi, screened last year during the holy month of Ramadan.
