Interview: Getting to Know the Young and Controversial Actor Ahmed Azaar

Everyone has been clearly addicted to the new hit series, Sabe3 Gar. In the past 36 episodes, people have grown to love some characters and, well, hate others..

We talked to the most hated character in the series, who happens to be a very nice and humble person in real life, Ahmed Azaar.

“My acting career started with doing ads, I used to work with Ahmed Nader Galal who thought that I’m talented and that I should act, so I took a workshop and one thing led to the other, and here I am today,” Ahmed told us.

The rising star used to study finance before getting involved in such a career. “I never thought that one day I’ll end up being an actor. However, this opportunity is one of the greatest things that happened to me. I truly enjoy my career, I love what I do.”

Azaar who was known -and ultimately loved- as Moe in Hekayat Banat season 3 faced a lot of hate on Facebook lately for playing a cheater in Sabe3 Gar. “To me, this sudden hate shows that I could deliver the message. The character cheats on his wife, you shouldn’t sympathize with him in any way. The fact that people loved me as Moe and hated me as Ahmed gives me confidence that whatever role I play next, I’ll know how to do it in a way that gets to people.”

We also had to ask about the negative feedback that Sabe3 Gar received for misrepresenting the Egyptian woman and family in general. “We don’t make up stories in this series, we only point out what’s already happening. The problem here is that some people feel exposed seeing this on TV while others deliberately choose to ignore the fact that this is everywhere around us now. We don’t want to say what’s right or what’s wrong, it’s not our job to judge, we just shed light on the truth.”

The young actor is still making up his mind concerning his next move in the acting world. In the meantime, you can try to separate between his real character and his role in Sabe3 Gar, enjoy the art and wait for him in Tal2 Sena3y soon with Maged El Kedwany.
