He’s not only an extremely talented, successful, and young first-generation actor, but he also didn’t even have an interest in acting until he reached university!
His studies of mass communication was a backup plan in case he failed at acting, but with multiple successful movies and series, he surely doesn’t need plan b. Ahmed is a master of all characters on the screen.
Where do you get your creative inspiration?
Staying in a nice house for a long time is really inspiring for me – I can get a lot of food for thought that way. Music is often an inspiration, especially Amr Diab.

In Egypt, we don’t separate fashion or identity. We’re very expressive with our clothing.
What are your three top travel destinations:
The first is Moscow. I love the city, and it’s a really easy-going place and the locals really make you feel welcome. Barcelona is another, I went last month and it was perfect. Really open-minded place with a good mix of people and cultures. Beirut is another favourite; I can’t really explain this one and do it justice – you just have to go!
