The wait for the Royal parade is finally over! The date is set for The Pharaohs’ Golden Parade on April 3, where 22 mummies will gracefully roam the streets of Cairo.

The royal parade will by all means be  unrivalled and once in a lifetime event. 

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is organizing the event, which is the first of its kind in the world, to transfer 22 royal mummies in a majestic world parade from the place of its current display in the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to the place of its permanent display in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat.

During the meeting, the company organizing the event which is specialized in this field said that the transfer will be executed  in a way that guarantees and provides the safety and security of atrifacts of the event.
The organizing company reviewed the details of the action plan to bring out the event with the appearance that befits the greatness of our ancestors and the nobility of the Egyptian civilization.
In addition to discussing the plans of the artistic performances that will be presented since the parade's departure from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir and traveling through the streets of Cairo until reaching the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat, and the itinerary of the parade, decorations, artistic elements and propaganda materials that will be used to decorate the streets and squares along the route of the parade, as well as the designs of clothes and costumes that will be worn by the participants in the celebration and the accompanying music.
The Golden Pharoah's Parade will be accompanied on the same day by the opening of the central hall and the Royal Mummies Hall of the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.
Dr. Khaled El Enany stressed that the transfer of royal mummies will be carried out according to specific procedures that will be taken into account, safety and security wise, followed internationally in the transfer of artifacts.
The artifacts will be placed in advanced sterilization units, and then loaded on carts that have been specially designed and equipped for that event.
This will all be loaded with the aim of preserving the integrity of the mummies, and ensuring that the celebration is carried out in a manner befitting the greatness of the ancient Egyptian civilization.


It is noteworthy that the number of mummies and coffins which will be transferred are 22 royal mummies, dating back to the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasty, there are 18 mummies for kings and 4 mummies for queens, including the mummy of King Ramses II, King Seqnen Ra, King Thutmose III, and King Siti The first, Queen Hatshepsut, Queen Mert Amon, wife of King Amenhotep the First, and Queen Ahmose-Nefertari.

From engineering classes at the American University in Cairo (AUC) and onto the university’s stage, Yassin was spotted by director Khairy Beshara. 


But he has come a long way from AUC productions, and has since become one of the leading Egyptian actors on both the small and the big screens. 


Through a diverse portfolio, Yassin has proved he is an artist of many talents, from one of his first challenging roles in "Zay El Naharda" (Like Today) in 2008, where he played the role of a drug addict who made us both love and hate him, and all the way to his latest series "30 Youm" (30 Days), where he so meticulously showed us the drastic changes of his character throughout the month. 


In between, he perfected a stutter in "Rasayel El Bahr" (Messages from the Sea) in 2010 and then showed us his comic abilities in "Bebo w Beshir" in 2011. 


Always a hard worker seeking new challenges, Yassin has also been assuming the director’s chair, working first in 2016 on the video clip of Abu’s "Ahwak" (I Love You) song, featuring a retro vibe evoking old Agamy days on the beaches of North Coast’s Marassi, and also the video clip for Wust El Balad song "El Ekhtelaf El Motalef" (Our Familiar Differences). 


His latest work as a director has created quite the social media buzz, featuring an unconventional storyline and a rather quirky vibe. 


Yassin's  movie "Turab el Mass" (Diamond Dust) achieved a huge success. 





Yassin will play the leading role in the Arabic version of the widely popular series “Suits”.


The series will be written by Mohamed Amien Rady and directed by Khaled Marie.


Egyptian superstars Yousra and Asser Yassin co-stared in the Egyptian movie ‘’ Saheb el Makam’’ which was released in July 30 on Shahid digital platform, few days preceding Eid el Adha. 



Yousra appears throughout the events of the film to Yassin who embodies the role of a wealthy businessman, in the form of a spirit and chases him. 


Beside Yassin and Yousra, the movie stars Amina Khalil, Riham Abdel Gahfour, Bayoumi Fouad, Nesrine Amin among others. ‘’ Saheb el Makam’’ is written by Ibrahim Eissa, directed by Mando el Adl and produced by Ahmed el Sobky. 


Yassin achieved booming success through embodying Omar character in his highly successful Ramadan series ‘’100 Wesh’’.


“100 Wesh” or “La Casa de Bolaq’’ as viewers on social media have branded it, likening it to Le Casa de Papel, was the funniest offering this Ramadan. 


Sokkar and Omar come from two different worlds but have a common goal: to be millionaires, as is clear from the theme song of the series which has become very popular. 


Though the two swindlers each have their own ways of pulling off cons, they decide to come together and use their criminal skills to work on a number of jobs. 


The series was a very simple comedy that is free of any complications or sophisticated plot turns, and you don’t have to concentrate much on its tiny details to understand its sequence. 


But what’s made the series so appealing from the very first episode is that it houses two huge and popular stars, each of them used to playing the leading role and who have stepped completely out of their comfort zones and are not even comedians!


In 2019, the International Organisation for Migration in Egypt (IOM) appointed Egyptian stars Nelly Karim and Asser Yassin as goodwill ambassadors for the organisation. 

Yassin recently served as a jury member in El Gouna Film Festival’s feature film competition.
