Mini series Al-Rawabi School For Girls (مدرسة الروابي للبنات) is still achieving a smashing success and causing a widespread frenzy on both local and international social media.
Co-written by Tima Shomali and Sherine Kamal, and directed by Tima Shomali, Al-Rawabi School For Girls has casted familiar faces such as Rakeen Saad, Jordanian veterans such as Nadera Omran, Diana Rahmeh, Reem Sadeh and Suheir Fahed, as well as new faces.
In a recent interview with the director of Al-Rawabi School For Girls, Saudi journalist Sarah Dundarawy hosted Tima Shomali in her famous talk show Tafa3olcom.
Sarah revealed that she was shocked when she learned that many of Al-Rawabi girls were actually new faces, except for Rakeen Saad, and despite their first experience in acting, they've shown an outstanding performance.
Tima added that she took her time in casting, and intended to go for new faces who are spontaneous yet talented and skilled.
The director also revealed that the actresses themselves selected the characters they wanted to play in the Netflix series, because they felt they relate to them.
