Today we’d like to introduce you to Nour Helo.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I think each one of us is blessed with gifts and talents that support our life purpose. I believe that what’s meant to be yours will come to you. I’ve always loved acting, I loved acting since I was a kid. I remember when I was six years old I loved filming myself and making my own films and tv shows even commercials with my childhood friends. I also liked dancing and singing in front of the camera. I remember my mom getting mad at me because I was using her camera and it was one of those old fashion cameras. Sounds funny huh, but that’s how a small dream starts. To be honest, I have no idea why I’m so in love with acting.
When I was a teenager I started getting more curious about acting, so I started watching movies more and more then I look them up to watch their behind the scenes videos and see what happens on set and how actors do their job. I loved the idea of playing a different characters, especially those exotic or surreal characters.
When I finished high school, my piano teacher asked me “what is your major?”, and I said computer science! .I remember her face till this moment she was in shock. She was like are you serious! You’re so talented you can be an actress or model! And I was like whattt!!! How did she know! I think it was a divine sign from God that’s when I realized that I should do what I like to do.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Entertainment industry is so competitive in many ways but no one can do someone else’s part or job, there’s only one you. no one can get the part that is meant to be yours. So yes it is hard, it is challenging but success in acting is all about being in the right place at the right time.
I’ve had so many incredible experiences, met amazing people and learned so much not only in the acting studio/school but also working in the industry.
Also Playing instruments including Piano/Singing and doing sports as a kid helped me a lot. It takes effort, hard work and discipline to achieve your goals. I work so hard every single day to improve those skills I have.
Please tell us about NourHelo.
To be honest, I think being the best actor is way important than being famous. But also stardom is good when you like to inspire and help others, Just like Oprah Winfrey. I love acting so much and I want to help and inspire others by acting. That’s gonna be the way to reach people’s heart and be their best friend. I really wanna make this world a better place and I think that’s my life purpose and the main reason why I’ve always loved acting.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
There are so many things to remember and to be honest, it’s really hard to be specific. But one of my best memories is the one I mentioned above, the moment I started creating my world and future. Every childhood moment developed something in me. Those funny childhood moments shaped me into who I am now. This actress that looks professional that can act, sing, dance and play the piano was once a child Acting, singing and dancing in front of the camera. Playing piano and performing on stage, the child that wanted to turn their dream and imaginary world into reality.
