Ahmed Zaki Metwally Badawi (Arabic:احمد زكي متولى بدوى‎) (November 18, 1949 – March 27, 2005) was a leading Egyptian film star. He was characterised by his talent, skill and ability in impersonating.

Il est célèbre pour ses interprétations variées et engagées. Son dernier succès, Son Excellence le ministre, dénonce violemment la corruption politique.
