Sawsan Badr completed her graduation from the High Institute of Theatrical Arts in 1979, after leaving her studies in the faculty of Science. She started her acting career with the British film “Death of a Princess” by British director Antony Thomas in 1980. The film made a stir at its premiere in Britain, because it infuriated the Saudi Arabian government for its portrayal of the kingdom’s history. That’s why Sawsan was blacklisted from the Egyptian and Saudi television and she lost many roles following the film. Although it made her very popular, she tried several times to leave Egypt, but finally she decided to change her name to Sawsan Badr.

Sawsan delivered an outstanding performance in her second film “Always My Love” in 1980, directed by Hussein Kamel. The Director Shadi Abdel Salam selected her to complete the role of Nefertiti in the film “Akhenaten”, because the director died before completing the film.

Sawsan received the Best Actress award for the play “Al Ard La Tanbit Al Zuhur” and for her role in the series “Dawlat Fahmy”. She also won a number of international awards for her role in “Al Dawair Al Mughlaqa” in 2001. She received the Best Actress Award at the 34th Cairo International Film Festival. She also appeared in many theater plays, including “Al Wad Sayyid Al Shaghal”.
