Dalia Mahmoud Quotb El Behery (Arabic: داليا محمود قطب البحيري‎‎; born October 15, 1970) is an Egyptian actress. She won the 1990 title of Miss Egypt, and the 27th place in the 1990 Miss Universe pageant in Los Angeles.

Biography[edit]

El Behery received a bachelor's degree from the Faculty of Tourism and Hotels at Helwan University, and worked in prelude programs on the Egyptian Satellite Channel and modeling. Her first notable appearance was in a video clip of the song "Tegeesh neaeesh", by Ali El Haggar. Her modeling career paved the road for her acting profession. She has worked with stars such as Adel Imam in his film Al Safara fe Al Emara along with other comedians and singers including Hany Ramzy, Moustafa Amar and Khaled Selim.

El Behery said in one of her interviews on television that it wishes to embody the role of pharaonic Queen "Nefertiti" on the screen, denying rumors that she was reluctant about the portrayal of the Queen "Cleopatra" by the Syrian actress Solaf Fawakhirji.

In August 2008 she married Fred Morse, grandson of artist Farid Shawki,from his daughter the producer Nahed Farid Shawki. She had already been married before and given birth to a daughter named Khadija, who died at the age of 8 months because of a rare disease. She also has a daughter from her second marriage named Kesmat.

El Behery signed on as a Goodwill Ambassador for World Stroke Day in November 2010,[1][2]

Political views[edit]

In a telephone conversation with the channel “Al Arabiya”, she expressed her happiness with the peaceful Egyptian Revolution of 2011 and the demands for basic rights like freedom, political reform and a joint effort for nation building. In the meantime, Dalia said the absence of security made her feel worried, like the rest of the population. The worry, she explained, has been getting constantly worse after hundreds of prisoners fled the prison of Al Faiyum. She added that the youth revolt had ignited in the Egyptian streets and she thanked her fellow Egyptians who united to guard public property, especially the Egyptian Museum.[3]
