On Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015, Egypt lost one of its most prominent, inspiring and iconic actresses, Faten Hamama.
Chosen as the “Star of the Century” by Arab critics and writers, Hamama will forever hold a place in our hearts. While we mourn her loss, we are grateful to have so many memories and films to always keep her alive in our hearts.
Here are just a few of the many reasons why we will always love Faten Hamama:
She was a true lady
She was elegant
She was simple and feminine
She made it without giving up on her values
She fit every role perfectly
She was a role model
She played roles that depicted women as independent and powerful
She was a star
She was loved by everyone
