Syrian actress, Hagar ElSarrag bedazzled the audience in the 2022 Ramadan hit Betlou’ Al-Rouh’, where she stars as the wife of the ISIS leader Omar Al Desouky, played by Ahmed Elsaadany, in the Syrian city of Al Raqqah. Hagar gave a striking performance in the series, playing a naive, yet rebellious woman. She clandestinely does things forbidden for ISIS women, such as smoking, going to the salon, and wearing makeup. However, she is fascinated by her world in Ar Raqqah, and her ISIS leader husband who has authority over this terrorist. The series is currently screening on MBC and ShahidVIP. It is directed by Kamla Abou Zekry, written by Mohamed Hesham Obayya, and starring Menna Shalaby.
She attended acting workshops with notable instructors such as Gerald James, Nadim, Luke, and Ramsi Lehner.
Hagar studied filmmaking and worked as an assistant producer in the past. She began acting, though, because she wanted to explore the relationship between the director and the actor, so she chose to try being in front of the camera rather than behind it.
