Mahmoud, son of the able artist, Izzat Al-Alaili, spoke about his father after the funeral prayer ended for the latter.
The son of the late artist revealed that his father did not leave any particular will before his death.
The great artist, Izzat Al-Alayli, left our world on Friday morning, at the age of 86, leaving an artistic career full of artistic works, whether at the level of cinema or drama, over the past 60 years since he started his acting career.
Ezzat Al-Alayli began his career as a TV programmer, before the opportunity came to him through the movie “Message from an Unknown Woman” in 1962, which marked his cinematic debut, and then his work varied between cinema and television.
Al-Alayli presented many cinematic roles, most notably: “The Land and The Choice” by Youssef Shaheen, and the movie: “Saqqa Matt” by the late director Salah Abu Seif, and he also presented prominent roles in television as well.
It is noteworthy that Izzat Al-Alaili’s latest work is the series: “Family Restraint”, which he presented last year, in which he embodied the role of Kamel Al-Khouli, and co-starring Mervat Amin and other artists.
