Its childish features, its soft voice, and its distinctive style, were the reason for its excellence and attracting attention all the time, and the ticket to the artist Magda Al-Sabahi’s entry into the world of cinema, which I raised through a number of artworks, both in terms of acting, directing or producing, so that her works remain vibrant, even with She died Thursday, at the age of 89, after a struggle with illness.
The artist Magda was characterized by extreme shyness, which was reflected in her aristocratic appearance and personality which she inherited from her mother, which helped her gain the love of the public in the fifties of the last century, as an icon of “tenderness” and “pamper”, and the manufacture of a “different personality” among the stars of her generation.
Magda entered the world of acting in 1949, when she was thirteen years old at the time, hidden from behind her family, so she changed her name from Afaf Ali Al-Sabahi to become Magda Al-Sabahi, through the movie “The Adviser”, by the director and author Saif Al-Din Shawkat , Starring Ismail Yassin and Farid Shawky.

After several attempts by her father to abandon the lawsuit to beg the producer, for the film to achieve unparalleled success, while she remained confined to the house for a year, until her mother’s heart was tender to her tears, and she persuaded her family to return to acting, so that her father agreed, but “under strict conditions”, including that one of her relatives accompany her in the filming sessions For 5 consecutive years, Magda will record a great breakthrough in the world of acting.
