Nadia Rafik, born in 1935, is considered one of the most famous Egyptian actresses who was condemned as the mother’s role in television and cinema.
In a previous interview, she said that she represented the mother’s personality to actors of the same age and older than her, given that in her voice she was “craving motherhood” according to what she was informed.
Her breakthrough was in the world of acting on the Egyptian radio, then she moved to television despite the reluctance of her family, and participated in many series, most notably “Diary and Nice” with Mohamed Sobhi, “One Thousand and One Nights”, and “Night of the Capture of Fatima” with Firdous Abdel Hamid and Farouq Al-Fishawy and “Dreams of a Flying Boy” with Adel Imam.
She also participated in supporting roles in films, most notably “Blood on the Asphalt” with Nour al-Sharif, “Recorded Danger” with Adel Imam, and “Swaq Al-Hanim” with Ahmed Zaki.
Her most recent work was the series “Bab Al-Khalq” with Mahmoud Abdel Aziz in 2012, and her son stated in previous dialogues that she retired after passing a bad psychological state due to the lack of an advanced name for her in artistic works and abbreviated roles.
