Tribute to Soufien Chaari


The sudden death of Tunisian actor Soufien Chaari shocked Tunisian society. A large number of Facebook pages were created to pay tribute to Chaari the minute news of his death came out. Just 24 hours after his death, Facebook pages, such as “Allah yar7mek Soufien Chaari” (God give rest to Soufien Chaari) were followed by 28,691 Facebook users. These Facebook pages have so far been the main space where Tunisians have expressed their sadness and sorrow for the loss of the actor.
Moreover, the whole media scene has reacted to the sad event — Nessma TV (a Pan-Maghreb TV Channel) organized a special talk show to pay tribute to Chaari.
Soufien Chaari began his career as a theater actor, before devoting himself to television. Chaari starred in five sitcoms, but he was mostly known for his role as “Sbouii,” in “Choufli Hal” (Find me a Solution) as well as for his role as “Hssouna,” in “Nssibti Laziza” (My Dear Mother in Law).
After five years of bringing smiles to Tunisians’ faces, Chaari’s sudden death has brought grief to the whole Tunisian society.

Hi MellieC hope that you and Fred are both in good health!

Dhafer el Abidine Honors Tunisian Revolution on CNN

Dhafer el Abidine, the Tunisian world-famous actor currently residing in London, was recently welcomed by the American television channel CNN, as a part of its Africa Voices program. El Abidine seized this opportunity to praise the Tunisian revolution, whose events recently shook up the world stage and caught the attention of international audiences. On camera, Dhafer urged program viewers to look to this small country called Tunisia — with its rich civilization and heritage, and which was the seat of an unprecedented popular movement on the part of the Arab people — as a role model to be emulated.
Throughout the interview, el Abidine responded eloquently to numerous questions posed by the show host and emphasized his pride in being a Tunisian citizen. He repeatedly asserted that he views himself as a representative of all Tunisian people, and that he hopes to soon see a free and democratic Tunisia — without any remnants of favoritism and corruption. El Abidine also underscored his gratitude towards the martyrs of Tunisia’s revolution who, in his eyes, “…sacrificed themselves for the freedom of their country and the dignity of all Tunisians and Arabs as a whole.”
