Mona Zaki (Arabic: منى زكى‎; born November 18, 1976) is an Egyptian actress. Although she had no interest at all on being an actress, Mona Zaki is now a remarkable leading star. Mona started her career in acting accidentally, when she met Mohamed Sobhi, the famous Egyptian actor and director. Mona is a mass communication student at the fourth grade. Her dream is to prove herself as a good actress. She wants to make good remarkable roles in her career as a Super Star. 'There is a lot to do'. She is married to Ahmed Helmi, an Egyptian actor. They are the parents of a daughter named Lilly.


Mona Zaki was born to parents Ali Mohamed Zaki and Tahani, on November 18, 1976. Until the age of 13, Zaki lived in Kuwait. At the age of 16 and after seeing an advertisement by Mohamed Sobhi for new faces, she applied merely in hope of getting a chance to meet the famous Egyptian actor and director. Luckily, Zaki was cast by Sobhy and had her first acting role in his play Bel Araby El Faseeh.

When it was time for Mona to go to university, she enrolled in the Faculty of Mass Communications at Cairo University. During that time, she was introduced to director Ismail Abdel Hafez who chose her to play a part in El A'elah, a Ramadan series that marked her TV debut.

Acting became more than just a hobby to Mona after that; she later acted in a number of popular TV series: Khalti Safiya wel Deir, Nisf Rabi' El Akhar, Ahalina, Ded El Tayyar and El Daw' El Sharid.

The promising star's TV roles opened the doors of the big screen for her. Mona invaded the cinema with El Katl ElLaziz, with Mervat Amin, then went on to play lead roles in Idhak El Soura Titla' Hilwa - a performance for which she received an award - Sa'idi fil Gam'a Al-Amrikiya, Omar 2000, El Hobb El Awal, and Leih Khallitni Ahibbak - all of which were box office hits.

But Mona played the role of Gihan El Sadat in the masterpiece Ayam El Sadat(which was about the Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat). The young actress was given an award, along with the rest of the cast of the movie, by President Hosni Mubarak.

Success remained close to the talented star and her dedication was well rewarded with the huge popularity of her next movies Africano and Mafia. She went on from one movie to another, presenting Sahar El Layali, Men Nazret Ein, Khalti Faransa and many more.

Despite her huge success in the cinema, Mona also acted in several plays, among which were Le'b Eyal, Ya Messafer Wahdak, Afrouto and Keda OK.

When her brother, Hassan Abu Ali, was woken up by his sister’s cries, he heard of what had happened to her and went to avenge her husband. When Hassan is taken to the police station, he acted smart in front of the police general and told him that he was being beaten by the other police officers. As a result of that, the dean let him go and gave him a card, so he could call him whenever he had any problem. He comes back to find his little brother, who was beaten by his sister’s husband, in a critical condition. He finds out that his brother suffers from a congenital heart defect and needs surgery. Hassan tries to get money from his boss, but he gave him so little that he refused to take it. Hassan then thinks of stealing money from his boss’ garage. When he runs away after stealing the money, Hassan meets a woman called Salma. Hassan pushes his friend, Amin, in front of her car so that they could both get a ride to escape. Salma does not know what was happening, but Hassan uses her to help him escape from the police. As they are escaping from the police, the policeman shot his colleague and dies. The policeman later blames Hassan for killing him. He then escapes with Salma. In the beginning Salma did not agree with their plan of running away. Instead, she wanted to tell the police what had happened, and that she had nothing to do with their run. However, she changes her mind and agrees on helping Hassan when she sees him with his younger brother, who needs surgery. During their runaway they fall in love. They have been close to getting caught both by the smugglers and the police. Later, Hassan decides to call the dean of the police, and agreed about a plan to catch the police officer.
