Egyptian Actor Alaa Shoier believes every actor has undergone lots of struggles and pains in their lives. But what separates a successful actor from the rest is how they tackle the challenges of life. While most fans and followers look into the ‘glamour’ aspect of acting, the reality is, acting is also a competitive field and one has to fight hard to get success here.
Many aspiring actors feel devastated and depressed when things don’t go the way they planned. But one who refuses to bow down and takes challenges head-on will eventually get success. Egyptian actor Alaa Shoier has faced several hardships in his life and acting career, but he was resilient and determined to carve a niche for himself in this field. And today, he is rated as one of the top actors in Egypt.
Does Training and Motivation Matter in Life?
Many believe acting is a creative field, and passion matters much more than motivation and training. But Alaa Shoier believes motivation, hard work, and training are also necessary to become a successful actor.
“When I entered the Egyptian film industry, I knew no one here. I didn’t know how I could survive here. But what kept me going was my constant training, perseverance, and motivation. I am glad that I have been able to work with some of the leading and prestigious actors in the Arab world in my career,” Alaa explained.
What Makes a Good Actor?
The 28-year-old Egyptian actor who has achieved unprecedented fame in a short period owes all his success to his childhood passion, strong willpower, determination, and self-confidence.
“Today, I”ve more than 100K followers across social networking sites, but when I started it was just zero. At that time, my sole focus was to brush my acting skills more and undergo hard training. I was shy and lacked confidence on those days, but I was firmly determined about my aim. I knew I could become a good actor. With this positive belief, I honed my acting skills more,” Alaa said.
Thus confidence and self-belief are the two key elements that make a great and good actor. If you are not confident about your own acting skills, then who else will?
Who Should Join the Film Industry?
Alaa believes anyone, who is confident, determined, and passionate about acting can join this field. Initially, things can look too difficult. But if you have the talent and passion, then you should join this field.
How Much Importance Should We Give to Fitness?
Alaa was initially introverted, shy, and nervous. He was extremely shy to talk with girls. He used to spend a lot of time watching TV serials and films. However, his brother, Amr, was constantly focusing on fitness and health. Soon, he became a fitness enthusiast. His brother’s fitness-conscious attitude compelled Alaa to self introspect and work on his fitness. And since then he has never looked back. He’s a fitness freak himself and never misses out on going to the gym for a single day.
Can a Positive Vision Help One Achieve Success?
Alaa opined that a disciplined fitness regime helped him transform his body into its right shape. His constant focus on fitness also helped him broaden his mental horizon and observe things more closely with a positive attitude.

Alaa has worked with big names, including Sulaf Fawakherjit (Syrian actor) and Mohammad Ramadan in his career until now.

Alaa has acted in various TV series like Nesr El-Saeed and Khat Sakhin, among others.

“If you can visualize yourself doing particular stuff, nothing can stop you from becoming an actor. Don’t get allured by money, name, and fame. Only prioritize your acting and goal,” Alaa added.
