Israel-born actress Gal Gadot said on Sunday that she will be teaming up again with “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins in a new film, where she will play the role of the legendary Egyptian Queen Cleopatra.

“I love embarking on new journeys, I love the excitement of new projects, the thrill of bringing new stories to life,” Gadot wrote.

“Cleopatra is a story I wanted to tell for a very long time. Can’t be more grateful about this A team,” Gadot wrote.

Gadot said that she can’t wait to tell Cleopatra’s story “through women’s eyes” for the very first time. But not everyone was as excited as she is about the announcement and people are questioning the choice of an Israeli in playing the ruler of a North African country.

People took it to social media to express their outrage at choosing Gadot to play the Egyptian ruler, and believe that it should have been an Egyptian-born to play the role or at least a black actor.

This clearly isn’t the only reason why Egyptians in specific are outraged, but they’re also upset a choosing an Israeli Actress to portray the Egyptian historical figure.

On the other hand, others are pointing out that the Egyptian ruler was actually ethnically Greek or Persian. Which side are you on?

Omar El Saeed, a star who was able in no time to steal the attention and turn heads. His talent showed in a number of shows and movies and in each one, he never failed to impress us with his uncanny performance.

We sat down with the talented star and had a quick chat on his latest work in ‘Aswad Fateh’ and he revealed to us some behind the scenes, the action that none of us got to see!

When we asked Omar how they shot the series during quarantine time and how challenging that must have been, he surprised that quarantine and the virus were actually the least of their concerns. To our surprise, the show was shot in Lebanon during the explosion! Talk about challenges.

Saeed told us that the entire cast was actually near the explosion when it occurred, he even told us that Haifa Wehbe was forced to leave her home and she stayed with the rest of the cast in an hotel.

When asked how they managed to overcome such a scare and continue shooting, he told us that they had each other’s back and that they were all on a friendly basis, which made the situation bearable. As they say, the show must go on and so they continued shooting despite such a disaster as they were committed to a deadline.

Talk about commitment and bravery!

We asked him where he would go once this coronavirus scare is gone, and he told us France or London. Of all his shows, Omar’s favorite one is ‘Al Beyoot Asrar.’

His favorite meal is Molokheya and we just couldn’t agree more. We love a star with an oriental good taste of food!

We asked him about the weirdest comment he has ever gotten on Instagram, he said a woman actually cussed at him but as a compliment! A bit aggressive, don’t you think?

He also told us that the most annoying thing he receives is requests from fans asking him to record a video wishing someone a happy birthday!

Omar certainly worked with a lot of charming actresses from Egypt, but when we asked him which actress he would love to work with from Hollywood, he said Cameron Diaz. 

We ended the interview with a bunch of this or that questions! So let’s get to know him better together, shall we?

Texting or calls? Texting!

Movies or series or theater? Theater!

Beach life or desert life? Beach life.

Morning or night date? Morning date.

Party life or chill life? Both.

Favorite destination? South of France.
