Samir Sabry, the veteran, was a talented, and distinguished artist. We were feeling happy when we meet him; we often meet him in the corridors and offices of Akhbar Al-Youm, specifically in the office of late well-known art critic Mr. Nabil Esmat as there were friends, may God have mercy on their souls.
Samir used to spread laughter, culture and affection.. He was an integrated artist, brilliant broadcaster, singer, a graduate of Victoria College in Alexandria. For years, he continued to present his distinguished program “Haza Al Masa’a” and “Al Nady Al Dawly” on Egyptian television, they were among the most important programs that viewers watch in Egypt and the Arab world.
His mastery of languages and his wide culture, and his success helped him to move from radio, where his famous radio program “Ma Ytloboho Al Mostmo’n”, was broadcast on Middle East Radio, to television to interview a large number of celebrities and media figures, including musician Mohamed Abdel Wahab, poet Ahmed Rami, Pope Shenouda and actress Amina Rizk in distinguished interviews that must be studied.
In acting, we will never forget his wonderful roles and his performance in many movies. He also produced a number of films, and participated in several soap operas.
As for his show band, it remained over the years, the main theme in major parties, and in 2021 he donated all of this band clothes to the Balloon Theater.
The most important thing that Samir Sabry left for us is a book entitled Tales of the Whole Life “Hekayat Al Omr Kolo”, in which he tells his artistic memoirs and his journey in the world of art and presenting programs, so the future generations could learn from this book.
Sabry won a large number of artistic awards, and was honored for his entire artistic career during the last edition of the Cairo International Film Festival.
His last screen appearance was in the Valentino series with Adel Imam during Ramadan 2020. In the past few years, he participated in several films.
Despite all the artwork and awards, the most important thing that distinguishes Samir Sabry is his humanity, his love for his colleagues, and supporting everyone. Samir Sabry is an integrated art school in culture, knowledge and humanity.
May God have mercy on our great actor Samir Sabry.
