Last week, Egypt’s El Gouna was swamped with Arab actors, directors, models, and filmmakers, who all flocked to the resort town to celebrate the second edition of the annual El Gouna Film Festival, which wrapped up on Friday night. The week-long cinematic event, which kicked off on September 20, brought with it a host of stars, who came out in full force to support Arab theater and acknowledge their fellow peers who have helped to shape it.
Hosting the closing ceremony of this year’s festival was Nardine Farag, actor and host of MBC’s The Voice. Despite the festival’s jam-packed schedule, the Egyptian star, who has worked alongside Youssra in two TV series, took a little time out to catch up with her friends on the sidelines. In collaboration with Vogue.me, Farag is quizzing some of the Arab world’s brightest stars over a cup of coffee in a four-part series.
Previous episodes have featured Tunisian star Dorra Zarrouk, Egyptian actor Amina Khalil, and Alexandria-born actress, model, and ballerina Nelly Karim, and now Shereen Reda is starring in our final installment. The Egyptian actor joined Farag over a hot beverage to reveal her top beauty tips, how she manages a hectic schedule, her dream role, and who she’d most like to meet for a cup of coffee. Watch the full video above to see exactly what Reda had to say.
