Hend Sabry as Ola after a decade
The famous Tunisian actress, Hend Sabry, is debuting as an executive producer in the upcoming Netflix Arab series. Playing the same character after a decade and raising nostalgia among the fans is an impressive feat by Sabry. Let’s hear her thoughts on the show:
“As a lady who reached her 30s unmarried, I keep recalling Ola Abdelsabour’s character whose stories stir my own memories. This is exactly why we decided to bring the character back to life in the new series Finding Ola,”
“This character tackled a key issue, which is growing older unmarried amid family pressure and the concept of being ‘incomplete’ if you’re single.”
“The easiest way to discuss such a sensitive topic is making people laugh and putting a smile on their face. This is exactly what caught my attention in the book authored by Ghada Abul A’al that we decided to turn into a series back then,” said the beloved actress in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.
‘Finding Ola’ on Netflix is a light-hearted comedy-drama tackling social issues and stereotypes. Will it prove to be an entertaining and informative watch?
