Her versatile performance skills have garnered her a huge pan-Arab following in a short period of time, winning her impressive accolades —she is the youngest-ever actress to walk away with the Faten Hamama award—like being named the most influential Arab actress by Forbes Middle East.
Celebrating her 39th birthday Egypt Today will give its readers a glimpse about the Tunisian heartthrob.
Born in 1979 in Kebli, Tunisia, Sabry studied law and completed a master’s degree in intellectual property and copyright law in 2004; but by then, she had already been acting for about a decade.
She started her acting career in 1994 with the Tunisian film Samt El Qosour (The Silence of the Palaces) and starred in The Season of Men in 2000; both movies were directed by Moufida Tlatli.
She was then introduced to the Egyptian cinema scene by Inas El Deghedy in 2001 with the film Mozakerat Morahka (The Diary of a Teenager), co-starring alongside Ahmed Ezz.
Over the years she’s worked on movies and dramas tackling the difficulties and stigma facing people, especially women, and she serves as the World Food Program’s regional ambassador.
The starlet has received numerous awards for her cinematic career, artistic achievements and her role in tackling key social issues, including an award by the America Abroad Media organization in Washington.
Sabry got married in 2008 and has been blessed with two daughters, Alia and Laila, who are now 6 and 4, respectively.
