Samira Ahmed: our generation indispensable!

Egyptian actress Samira Ahmed will be back to her TV audience through a new series entitled Amira Min Abdeen (princess from Abdeen) scripted by Osama Anwar Okasha under the direction of Ahmed Saqer.  

The series is nominated to be aired during the forthcoming Ramadan. 

“I will appear in the series in a different way from my appearance in the series Ded al Tayyar (against the current) and Emraa Min Zaman al Hobb (woman from love time). This is due to the fact that Amira belongs to her aristocratic origin but she lives some of her life stages among the middle class,” Ahmed told the Arabic daily al Hayat. 

She added, “the series depicts that a woman is able of giving at any stage of her life until the end. This is depicted through the mother character who raises her children after her husband dies as martyr and overcomes many problems and crises she faces.” 

The new in Ahmed’s series is her keenness on nominating at least 10 young stars for playing roles in an attempt to give the opportunity for the talented artists.” 

The competent actress believes that “no body can replace the prominent stars. The new young stars have great enthusiasm and love for work but generally every generation has its own stars and dimensions. Frankly speaking our generation cannot be substituted and we will never see any new artists reaching the same level of our generation or offering same work,” said Ahmed --
