Via Sada El Balad

The competition for this Ramadan’s best mosalsal is about to come to an end. Unfortunately, very few of them were worthy of our time. Although, one of the more successful ones that was definitely worth watching was VIU‘s Zodiac!

Zodiac follows the story of a group of university students that get involved in a series of mysterious crimes, related to a group project about a popular astrology professor. Soon after, members of the group start to die one by one in a way related to his/her zodiac sign.

The series features a huge number of fresh faces, including Khaled Anwar, Injy Abo Yazid, Asmaa Abolyazid, Hind Abdelhalim, and of course, the promising young actress May El Gheity.

May has showcased her talent on-screen on several occasions, including roles in Grand Hotel, Tayea‘, Eshtebak, and El Gezira 2. We had a quick chitchat with her after we saw her stunning role in Zodiac, and here’s how it went.

Describe your role in Zodiac in five words.

Free spirited, Stubborn, brave, adventurous, and spontaneous.

Who’s your favorite artist from Zodiac’s cast?

Most of the cast were already my close friends, so I’m glad that Hend Abdelhalim became my friend after the series.

What changed in the role between the papers and on screen?

On the papers it wasn’t clear how Mariam is with people, especially that she’s new to the group. But me and the director sat down and figured this out before the shooting.

If you didn’t play your role, what other role would you have played in Zodiac?


What was your favorite role so far?

My role in Eshtebak and in a short movie called Nada.

Who’s a director that you’re looking forward to work with?

I’d love to work with Dawood Abdelsaid.

And which actor and actress do you want to work with?

Definitely Menna Shalaby and Amr Waked.

What are your future plans?

I’m currently working on two movies, one Egyptian and the other is a Canadian production called Montreal Girls.

WE SAID THIS: If you haven’t seen Zodiac yet, then you should definitely add it to your watch list!
