The entire cast of Finding Ola managed to captivate our hearts, and we like to take a moment to look at the fresh faces in the cast and inform you of what we know about them.
Many of the cast we have never seen before, or maybe we aren’t too familiar with them, yet we can’t help but love them all and demand a second season.
This is why we decided to introduce you to some of the fresh faces we fell in love with in Finding Ola:
While you might think Aicel is already young, she started acting at an even younger age! Aicel started in Sheikh Jackson, El Shari’a, Elly Warana, Al Kinz, and you might have seen her in many ads!
The young American/Egyptian/Swiss actress is not just an actress, but she’s multi-talented, as she started her acting career at 9 and her singing career at 12. She acts and sings in English, French, and Arabic.
However, Yasmina’s first big step to public prominence was in 2019 as she featured in The Shadow of Cairo, which got nominated in 2018 for the Excellence Award in Smart Screen Creative Awards of MET Film School in London and was nominated for the Jury Prize for the best short action film in 2019 of NYICFF.
She was also in Banat Abdulrahman, winning several awards at the 43rd Cairo Film Festival Awards.
She released three music videos and has over five million views on YouTube. And will be starting in HBO’s Theodosia, where she will be playing the role of Safia.
We all loved Ahmed Tarek in Dr. Marawn’s character in the show, and people on social media can’t stop talking about him. Ahmed is getting his career in acting started with his debut in Finding Ola.
Surprisingly, everyone’s new crush is not really an actor, yet he’s one of the most successful people in the media field. Tarek is actually CO-CEO & Partner at Tarek Nour Group.
Although people already believe that Ahmed Tarek is Tarek Nour’s son, he is not, which was made clear by his sister on Facebook.
We can’t wait to see his upcoming roles, and we know that we aren’t the only ones excited to see him in future works!
Amro Saleh is an Egyptian actor and TV host who began his career as a host on the Hayat channel and then moved to Dream channel, where he was the host of the famous youth show, “Shababik.” He began acting when director Ghada Salim cast him in “Khas Gidan” TV series in 2009.
He appeared in several roles after, but most notably Hekayet Binat in 2013. His first film role was also “Wahid Saheeh” in 2011.
