Today marks the birthday of the artist Mamdouh Wafi, who was abducted by death suddenly in 2004, and the audience still remembers him for his successful dramas to this day.
Throughout his artistic career, Mamdouh Wafi presented many famous roles, whether on stage, most notably his barbaric work with Mohamed Sobhi, or in the drama in the series “The Hajj Metwally Family”, and in the cinema in the movie “The Egg and the Stone” with the late Ahmed Zaki, Stakosa and the Emperor.
Mamdouh Wafi and Ahmed Zaki
He had a close friendship with the late Ahmed Zaki, who was like a brother to him, and he was always visiting his home and had a strong connection with his family.-
Yasmine Mamdouh Wafi revealed, in previous statements to her, the details of the close relationship between her father and the late artist Ahmed Zaki, saying: “Baba and Uncle Ahmed are buried together with Haitham .. They were in a very close relationship .. And Uncle Ahmed was like my uncle and my money. We have homemade food.”-
While Mamdouh Wafi was accompanying his friend Ahmed Zaki on his treatment journey, he discovered by chance that he had stomach cancer, and that his condition was advanced.
Yasmine Mamdouh Wafi indicated that her father was not convinced of her entry into the field of acting, and it was likely for her to work in the field of artistic criticism and drama, explaining the reason: “When I was young, I was brick and did not speak … and I was working on a family issue. I was terrified of comedy because Baba was king in it.” .
