Veteran Egyptian actress Soher El-Bably passed away on Sunday at the age of 86, after a long struggle with illness.
Earlier this month, El-Bably fell into a diabetic coma, which led to a number of complications, and she was transferred to the intensive care unit in a hospital.
El-Bably graduated from the Institute of Performing Arts and the Institute of Music at the same time. She was one of the most important theatre actresses in Egypt.
She starred in many plays such as “Madrast El Moshaghbeen” (The Troublemakers School), “Al Dokhoul Belmalabes el Rasmya” (Entering with the Official Customs), “Attya El Erhabya” (Attya the Terrorist), and “Ala el Raseef” (On the Platform).
El-Bably is best known for starring alongside prominent actress Esaad Yunis in the 1987 hit TV series “Bakiza and Zaghloul”, which is an important part of Egyptian drama history.
The veteran actress retired from acting in 1997, before returning in the 2006 TV series “Qalb Habiba”
