Sawsan Badr

Badr, Suzan Abu Taleb, is an Egyptian film, stage, and television actress who was born on September 25, 1957. 

She graduated from the High Institute of Theatrical Arts in 1979, after discontinuing her studies in the faculty of science. 

Badr appeared in many theater productions, including “Al Wad Sayyid Al Shaghal.” She got her start in the 1980 film British film “Mot Amira” (Death of a Princess) by British director Antony Thomas, which made quite a stir at the premiere in Britain, as it infuriated the Saudi Arabian government for its portrayal of the kingdom’s history.

She was blacklisted from Egyptian and Saudi television, and for this, she lost many roles directly following the film. Badr tried multiple times to leave Egypt but finally decided to change her name to Sawsan Badr.

The actress delivered a memorable performance in her second role in the 1980 film “Habibi Da’iman” (Always My Love) directed by Hussein Kamel.

Badr won the Best Actress Award for the play “Al Ard La Tanbit Al Zuhur”, and for her role in the television series “Dawlat Fahmy” as well as many international awards for her role in “Al Dawair Al Mughlaqa” in 2001.

She received the Best Actress Award at the 34th Cairo International Film Festival. Badr was cast to play Nefertiti in Shady Abdel Salaam’s film about Akhnaton, though the great director passed away before finishing the movie.
