Asser Yassin - Official Instagram Account.
CAIRO – 21 October 2018: In an attempt to promote tourism in Egypt, famed Egyptian actor Asser Yassin posted his photos in Giza Pyramids on his Instagram account, captioning them "Hanging out with my ancestors."
Asser Yassin was first spotted by director Khairy Beshara while performing on AUC's stage as he was an engineering student in the university.
Asser has come a long way since then, becoming one of the leading Egyptian actors on both the small and the big screens.
Yassin proved to be an artist of incomparable talent through the roles he played along the years; 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 in 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 in 2016 on the video clip of Abu’s song "Ahwak" (I Love You), featuring a retro vibe evoking old Agamy days on the beaches of North Coast’s Marassi, and now the latest video clip for Wust El Balad's song "El-Ekhtelaf El-Mo'talef" (Our Familiar Differences).
His latest works as a director created quite a social media buzz, featuring an unconventional storyline and a rather quirky vibe.
Yassin’s latest movie, "Turab al-Mass” (Diamond Dust), achieved a huge success.
Yassin previously explained that working with a director like Marwan Hamed and a scriptwriter like Ahmed Mourad in a movie based on a novel is a difficult challenge that requires significant effort.
He expressed his enthusiasm in partaking in such an important film featuring a notable cast.
"Turab al-Mass" is based on the 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.
Alongside Yassin, the cast includes Menna Shalaby, Maged el-Kidwany, Ezzat al-Alayly, Mohamed Mamdouh, Khaled al-Sawy and Sawsan Badr.
