Khaled Al-Sawy spoke about his artistic experience and the most prominent stations and mistakes that he made, and these were his most prominent statements.
1- My artistic career was not easy because of my choice of difficult solutions to reach, and I do not advise young people to follow my tradition, it is better for them to do what suits each of them’s personality.
2- I realized that I had succeeded as an actor after showing the play “Playing in the Brain” and then the movie “The Yacoubian Building”, I felt that I was setting my feet on the beginning of the path to success.
3- I loved the city of El Gouna, bought a house there, and I hope to be there permanently, because life in Cairo has become violent.
4- Happy to be honored at the El Gouna Film Festival, because it is a thematic festival that is not subject to budgets or courtesies, which are things that happen in other festivals in Egypt and abroad.
5- When I received the offer to present the movie “Gamal Abdel Nasser”, I felt that I would fall into a “grinder” between the character of Abdel Nasser himself and what Ahmed Zaki presented in the movie “Nasser 56”, but I thought that if I lived until I was 85 years old, I would be proud of my adventure that was It could ruin my future as an actor.
6- I wasted 5 years of my life, during which I refused roles in cinematic films because of my adherence to the championship in cinema after “Gamal Abdel Nasser”.
7- I spent 15 years acting inconclusively of my decision, but I decided to become a professional and full-time actor after the play “Playing in the Brain” was shown, and I made the rest of my other activities as hobbies in my spare time.
8- I will never forget the encouragement of director Ali Abdel-Khaleq and actress Nabila Obeid in the scene that I presented in the movie “The Path of Awakening” in 1990.
9- The first screening of “Al-Basha Talmiz” was in the same cinema that witnessed the first screening of “Gamal Abdel Nasser”. At that time, I cried because I was late in arranging the film’s heroes after I was a hero on my own and left the hall before the film ended so that no one would see me, because of my frustration. .
10- One day, a group of young people met me and they told me Ivee “We were families with each other” from the movie “Al-Basha Taliz.” I thanked them, thinking that they were mocking me and not my fans. Then I went with my family to see the movie and I found the audience welcomed this small role after the show ended. Leave a mark on the public so far.
11- Accepting the role of Hatem Rasheed in the movie “The Yacoubian Building” was a great adventure, because I was either successful and bright as an actor or failed and damaged as an actor, and I wrote more than 50 pages in the character’s history so that I could accept him and embody the role.
12- “I worked in reality films,” but I made a great effort to fulfill my duty in those films, without interfering with the work of directors and producers.
13- I worked as a lawyer, then a journalist under training at Good Morning Magazine, then as an assistant director and TV director, as well as an author, theater director and political activist. I saw life from all angles.
14- I see that the 3 most important films in my career are “Al Jazeera 1”, “The Blue Elephant 1” and “Al Farah”.
15- I did not present the character of Ibrahim Issa alone in the movie “The Guest”, and I made sure to mix the character with several other characters, and if my performance was limited to embodying the character of Ibrahim Issa, my performance would not like him himself.
16- When I am alone, I talk with characters from my imagination and quarrel with them and exchange opinions, and they are the reservoir that is useful to me in presenting different roles. I also face a problem with each new role, which is the answer to two questions, namely, “What is the extent of the similarity between my real personality and the personality that I embody?” And what are the differences between my personality and the role that I play?
17- I did stupid things on social media and apologize to the public for them, even if they were not the ones affected.
18- I am preparing to return to the stage with producer and director Magdy El Hawary, and I feel that I will present a different experience.
19- I participate in the movie “Ahmed Notre Dame” with Ramez Jalal and Ghada, and the movie “March 30” with Ahmed El-Fishawy, Dina El-Sherbiny and Asmaa Abu Al-Yazid.
20- I hope to finish filming the series “Cairo Kabul”, because it has faced many production problems, and I hope it will come out in a decent artistic way.
21- I have had a friendship relationship with Tariq Lotfi and Fathi Abdel Wahab since the eighties. I will expose their age, but they kept themselves and remained young.
22- I am the son of the Radio and Television Union, and I will not submit my resignation from my work in it unless they are indispensable to me, and I do not accept anyone outside the Maspero building criticizing it, and I reject attempts to demolish or reduce it.
23- I will not forget the merits of the journalist Hassan Hamed and his assistance to me on television, as I owe a debt of credit to Dr. Hoda Wasfi in the Al-Hanager Theater.
24- I graduated from the Faculty of Law and my colleague was Khaled Saleh, who always got first place in the university theater competitions, while I was getting the third place.
25- The Rights Theater Generation From 1980 to 1990 Muhammad Heneidy Mamdouh Maddah, Amr Abdel Jalil, Tariq Abdel Aziz came out of it, and after the University Theater, I established the Harakah troupe, and Fathy Abdel Wahab joined me.
