Egyptian actress Hannan Turk announced that she has decided to quit her acting career permanently and that her new television drama “Al Ukht Teresa” (Sister Teresa), which she is currently filming the scenes for, will be the last project she will present. Hannan stated that she was at first skeptical about announcing her intention to resign due to the fact that she was afraid people would understand her announcement as a way to advertise for her new drama. She also said that she did not want people to think she made the decision because she is afraid of the rise of Islamists parties to the political scene and obtaining power.
Hannan revealed that for the past month she has been seriously thinking about her resignation and had not intended on filming the drama “Al Ukht Teresa”, but the cast and crew as well as close family members convinced her to complete the drama then quit the entertainment.
The drama is scheduled to be aired during the holy month of Ramadan. The script is written by Bilal Faisal and direction by Hussam Al Jawhari. The drama stars Hannan, Ahmad Fuluks, Safa Jalal, Ameerah Hani, Sameerah Muhsin, Sami Al Adel, Ashraf Masleehi and Tareq Al Dasouqi.
