Suad Husni Suad Husni, Souad Hosni, or Soad Hosny (Born January 26, 1942,d. June 22, 2001 in Ataba, Cairo, Egypt) was an Egyptian actress of Syrian descent. She was the 10th sibiling from 17 brothers and sisters.
Husni was known as the "Cinderella" of Egyptian cinema and one of the most influential actresses in the Arabic art world. She ascended to stardom in the end of the 1950s, performing in more than 83 films between 1959 and 1991. A majority of her films were also shot in the 1960's and 1970's.
She died at the age of 59 after falling from the window of her closest friend's flat in London, England. Because while she was under therapy for depression at the time, her death is under investigation and may be considered a suicide. Husni sought out treatment in the UK after sustaining a spinal fracture that forced her to leave Egypt. Ironically, she died on Abdel Halim Hafez's birthday - one of the many people that influenced her on screen and in her real life.
Her final screen appearance dates back in 1991 in a film directed by her ex-husband Ali Badrakhan.
