She started art at a young age, when she was 16 when she participated in the series “Marry and Smile for Life”, but she stopped in order to complete her educational career.

She returned again to participate in the movie “Escape with Sabq Al-Asrar”, after which Youssef Shaaban nominated her for the famous series Al-Daw` Al-Shared.

Gilan Ibrahim’s participation in “Stray Light” was the conclusion of her artistic career, which did not exceed 3 works, to her death at the hands of her husband.

Who is the husband of Gilan Zaki who killed her?

Gilan married a police officer named Khaled Mujamed Reda, and their lives were stable, until she found out that her husband was an addict.

And here was the great shock, as all her attempts to treat her husband, whose bad nature appeared after a period of marriage, failed.

And he was constantly assaulting her, because of his addiction, he was addicted to cocaine.

The night she was killed, he left her in the bathtub and claimed she had fallen

Gilan tried to bear her husband, and on his birthday, which corresponded to March 28, 2000, the wife set up an evening for her husband to celebrate him.

But after the party ended, Gilan was talking to her friend and revealed to her that her husband is addicted and trying to calm him down, so she asked her about medications to treat this nervousness.

But her husband, who was under the influence of alcohol, could not control himself, and beat her violently and exaggeratedly.

He beat her with a sharp object all over her body, killing her.

The husband put his wife in the bathtub until her blood drained, and then told the police that she had fallen into the bathtub, which led to her death, but the court relied on testimonies from the people of Gilan and neighbors and their confession that he was a cocaine addict and was constantly assaulted.

The soldier who used him to wipe the blood in the bathroom of the house also confessed to him, and said that her husband left her in the bathtub until her blood cleared.
