Recently honored by the Sharm El-Sheikh International Festival of Youth Theater, what prompted you to accept this honor and what do you think of the festival after attending its activities?
A festival unique and important because it is a pure youth industry with the use of adults and greats in the theater to transfer their experiences to the new generation.

I have done six production experiments, but why did not your production experience continue?
Because I lost, I was not too lazy to work and I brought in great actors, but my problem was in marketing. I am an artist and not an art dealer. But art is an industry that needs marketing. I have produced series, produced plays and sometimes I was lucky and well marketed. I advise artists who accept the production experience as long as they do not know the subject do not venture because production is an adventure.

What is the unforgettable situation while working in the theater?
The artist Hamdy Ghaith in the theater I consider a giant and was the director of the world theater in my early and I was very afraid of him in the play of the plays I was working with him but I was very sick and rose temperature and voice «Rah» and asked my friend to contact him to inform him apologetic about being in the theater that day My friend called him, but he shouted at the phone when he learned the news and asked me to make it myself. There is nothing to prevent you on the stage except death and asked for my presence and summoned me to a doctor standing in the scenes and thus taught me a lesson I do not forget until today is that the theater has a sanctity different from all means of art, theater sanctity is very severe, and I actually went to the theater and took an injection and helped my colleagues, He told the audience before the beginning of the drama that I was sick, I came to respect the public, and asked the public to accept me in these satisfactory circumstances and told them that if you wanted to leave the theater and retrieve the tickets, we would do so.
Why did you have a fear of the experience of "soft hands"?
The film "Soft Hands" was my second experience in cinema and when I was shown I was very happy because it was a huge film but I was very apprehensive about the experience involving big giants. I had a sense of horror and went to the director Mahmoud Zulfikar and I told him I'm very fearful and I'm still at the beginning of the road. He said to me, "You are a very good actress, and we chose you for our trust in you." He said to me, "I have worked with the great, but with the young one, I will take you and pray."
One of the important experiences in your career is the "Shalash Family" series. Why did not this experience repeat itself with the same success?
The first time I was a serious person and very violent and encouraged me and served me in the presentation of that character artist Salah Zulfikar was an artist is a person who has no selfishness in the work, and likes to have in front of him in the work and gives any representative with energy and also director Mohamed Nabih was And we were conducting proofs on the television work as a theater and we keep the dialogue full and there was no montage, we would have been wrong to return from the first scene and help some well This was one of the most successful experiences on television and we were working in the spirit of the family and so was a smooth and simple serial, .

I have passed through different generations, what is the difference between the generations in which they appeared?
Since the beginning of my appearance there have been giants working in love at work and I have not seen a representative looking for his reward or he is «Tiger 1» and they were all «Tiger 1» and did not find one of them said about himself I «tiger 1» The great artist contained the youngest and the majority was The new stars, such as I am at the beginning of my life and I was still a student at the Faculty of Social Work and I was representing with the great Shadia Fakablani producer and said to me: «Azi Madhma Madhah Madhya Shadia Jet two hours» and I cried for my feelings of guilt and went to the dressing room to prepare quickly but I could not Stop crying and this thing bothered the man who was putting me make-up and suddenly found the artist She said to Mmekir: «You are doing a lassa Badri Sibha Sibha and took me to her room and sat with me and Dardst with me and here began to stop my tears and prepared a cup of coffee with her to calm down and said to me Entrish I came Badri and then photographed with me the best days of my life in photography».

In one series I was nominated for the role of aristocratic lady, The role of a popular girl in a neighborhood living above the surface asked to present this role, although it is not the tournament and will not marry that hero character, and despite the rejection of the producer, director Hamada Abdul Wahab insisted on this role as provided a character «Khawaja» in the film «husband on vacation» and was different Of what it has already provided.
If you were not an actress, what would you like?
I wanted to be a doctor who treated patients and I was in school. Teachers always wrote to me, "Dr. Sheruet," from the many things I wanted to be a doctor, but in high school I chose to enter the literary stage to be with my classmates.
What are the reasons for your recent departure from the art scene?
The artist, who preserves his art and respects his history, is supposed to be moving away. The climate has become different, but if it is a role and a team that I respect, I have no objection to cooperating with them. Being there for the purpose is not my goal. With me will not add me new.
