Wafa Amer turns to singing
Egyptian actress Wafa Amer has turned to singing, and will perform seven different songs in her upcoming television drama series “Imam Mohammad Abdo”.
In the drama Wafa plays the role of Nowara, a singer at a local nightclub who gains notoriety in the music industry and amongst political circles.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, the drama, set in the mid nineteenth century, is written by Ayed Al Ribat and directed by Shukri Abu Ameereh.
Wafa confirmed that she has no intention to resign from the acting world, despite circulating rumors, clarifying that she refuses to act in intimate scenes that include kissing.
Wafa was shocked a few weeks ago when she was offered roles in five different films, all of which include scenes containing nudity and sexual content.
The actress turned all five offers down, stressing that she refuses to play such roles that demoralize the actor and the audience.
In a recent interview, the actress revealed that she does not fear competition amongst other actresses since the roles she plays are written especially for her and could not be played by anyone else. She is currently taking part in three television dramas.
