In this podcast, Khalid Ali meets Khaled Abol Naga, one of the most popular faces in Egypt and with strong links to the UK.
He prefers to be introduced as an â€œactorâ€, but is also a well-known filmmaker, a UNICEF goodwill ambassador and a political activist.
During his latest visit to London, Khaled Abol Naga spoke with the Screening Room Editor of Medical Humanities about his long and diverse career and how his characters taught him about the human condition, mental illness or age.
They speak about Khaledâ€™s involvement with the refugee crisis on the Charles Dickensâ€™ musical Oliver adaptation to Arabic; his latest participation on the TV series â€˜Tyrantâ€™; and a therapy for students, which brought Egyptâ€™s taboos to the cinema screen.
