Egyptian actress Yousra Al Lawzi is all about saying no this season as she rejects show after show. The fresh-faced celebrity has turned down two Ramadan specials -- one opportunity to star alongside fellow Egyptian actor Karim Abdel Aziz for the TV drama "Wish Tani" (Two-faced/ Another Face), as well as a role in the soap "Nasibi Wa Qismiti" (My Destiny and my Waist!) alongside Egyptian actor Hani Salam. Both film projects were leading roles.

Perhaps she's gone Holy Month shy?

The real reason behind Yousra's repeat rejections to exciting offers seems to be down to the fact that she is dedicated to mothering her daughter Dalida. The new mama admitted her determination to stay close to her tot for the first year and keep that film-set at arms length, telling Laha magazine that lead roles were not an option.

Part-time gigs are a go!  
Our yummy mummy has however cautiously chosen to appear in a series alongside Tayem Hassan from the makers of a drama called "Cello" as a cameo role in four episodes -- something she feels much more comfortable committing to while parenting.
