“Rahil” is a suspenseful social drama set to air during Ramadan, a period that’s historically been auspicious for my work. The series delves into the life of a middle-class girl from a bustling neighborhood, entwined in a web of drama and suspense. It features a talented cast including Ahmed Fahmy, Samaa Ibrahim, and Ahmed Siam, with Mohamed Eid Abdel Moati as the writer and Ibrahim Fakhr as the director.

Why did you take a three-year break from television dramas?

Indeed, I’ve been training in martial arts and motorcycle riding as part of my preparation for “Delilah,” directed by Peter Mimi. In this film, I’ll be taking on my first lead role and portraying a superhero, which is a significant step in my career.

Does Yasmine Sabry have boundaries when it comes to acting roles?

Absolutely. I’m selective about the projects I take on, ensuring they align with my values and portray a positive image. My work must resonate with Egyptian culture, upholding its customs, traditions, and religious beliefs, and be suitable for all family members.

Do you choose your roles based on specific criteria?

Yes, I aim to present roles that resonate with all demographics in Egyptian and Arab society. I gravitate towards roles that are socially relevant and infused with humor, aiming to bring joy to the audience.

Are you concerned about the competitive nature of the industry?

Rather than focusing on competition, my priority is to work diligently and create impactful works that resonate with the audience.

What are your thoughts on the series being released on digital platforms?

While digital platforms offer a new avenue for content, I’m hesitant about limiting my audience. I aspire to reach the widest audience possible, including those in Upper Egypt and the Delta who may not have access to these platforms.

Would you consider exploring theater in the future?

I’m open to the idea of theater, but it requires a level of readiness and commitment that I’m currently dedicating to cinema and fashion endeavors in the Arab world. When the time is right, I look forward to embracing the challenge of live performance.
