CAIRO – 12 September 2018: Jordanian actor Eyad Nassar will join the cast of “The Corridor” movie, starring Ahmed Ezz and Hind Sabry.
Directed by Sherif Arafa, the movie features a notable cast that includes Ahmed Rizk, Mohammad al-Sharnouby, Mohamed Farag, and Asmaa Aboul Yazeed.
It revolves around the life of Brigadier General Ibrahim al-Rifai, the leader of a joint Army/Navy unit that specialized in crossing the Suez Canal separating Egypt from the then Israeli-occupied Sinai.
Born in 1974, the renowned actor Nassar was first introduced to Egypt through his role in the TV series "Sarkhat Ontha" (A Female's Scream) in 2007 along with his spectacular roles in Syrian TV dramas.
He first started his career as an assistant director in many television series and theatre plays. Portraying Muslim Brotherhood leader Hassan el-Banna, Nassar's role in 2015's historical series “Al Gama'a” received critical acclaim and helped him gain fame and success in Egypt.
His most recent TV series was "Hatha al-Masaa" (This evening), which starred a variety of talented actors, including Arwa Gouda, Ahmed Dawood, Hanan Motaw’a, and Hani Adel. In "Hatha al-Masaa", each character had his/her own story rather than orbit around one star.
Nassar's most recent cinema work was "Turab al-Mass” (Diamond Dust), which is based on a novel of the same name by Ahmed Mourad. The plot revolves around Taha, who works for a pharmaceutical company and lives an extremely boring life with his disabled father.
Taha’s life is turned upside down after a mysterious murder reveals many secrets, dragging Taha into the world of crime and corruption.
