Egyptian actress Hanan Turk stressed that wearing the hijab
(Islamic headdress) does not create and obstacle for her in her acting career
regardless of the role she plays. The actress said that the hijab does not
stand in her way of accepting roles even if they involve a level of intimacy.

Hanan revealed that one of her dreams is to portray the life
of Mother Teresa on the big screen. She added that she has been nominated to
play the role of Mother Teresa in a film that holds the same title as the nun’s
name, but all preparations for the film are halted due to production problems.
The actress said that she does not consider playing such a
role as risky, due to the fact that she will be playing the role of a woman who
is very religious and lives her life based on religious principals and ethics. She
added that she does want to talk about the details of the film until it is in
its final stages.
