CAIRO (AP) Mahmoud Yassin, Egyptian actor and pillar of the country’s film industry during the second half of the 20th century, has passed away. He was 79 years old.
Yassin has suffered from age-related health problems in recent years and was pronounced dead in Cairo early Wednesday, according to his family. His son Amr Mahmoud Yassin, also an actor, said his father’s funeral would take place on Thursday.
He was not only a big star, but also a great father, wrote Amr Mahmoud in an Instagram post.
Mahmoud Yassin has worked with some of Egypt’s most praised movie stars and filmmakers during a career that started in the 1960s, including Faten Hamama, Shadia and Soad Hosni.
He continued to play leading roles in the 1970s and 1980s, decades when critics say some of Egypts’ best films were produced.

Yassin had over 150 films to his credit, with roles ranging from romantic to serious, and emotional turmoil to optimistic and patriotic. His films included several based on stories from renowned Egyptian novelists, such as Nobel Prize winner Naguib Mahfouz and Ihsan Abdel Quddous.
Egyptian Culture Minister Inas Abdel-Dayem mourned Yassins’ passing and expressed his condolences to his family and fans.
The creative field has lost one of its icons and a gold star who sincerely expressed societal issues in his works, which left lasting traces in the history of theater, she said in a communicated.
Born in 1941 in the Mediterranean province of Port Said, Yassin studied law at the Cairos Ain Shams University. He embarked on a career as an actor on stage when he joined the country’s national theater in 1963.
He starred in several films during what was considered the golden age of Egyptian cinema, a period spanning roughly from the 1940s to the 1970s.
He is widely known for his patriotic roles in films depicting the Middle East Wars of 1967 and 1973, such as The Bullet is Still in My Pocket, and Ascent to the Abyss, a film that portrays Heba Selim, who worked for the Mossad in the 1960s and was arrested and executed by Egypt.
His famous roles have included films like Where Is My Mind with Soad Hosni, We Do Not Sow Thorns with Shadia and Mouths and Rabbits with Faten Hamama. He has also appeared in a handful of television series.
For the past two decades, he has appeared in the 2007 action film The Island and the 2012 Grandpa comedy, My Darling. He was also an anti-hunger ambassador for the United Nations World Food Program, visiting war-torn areas such as the Darfur region of Sudan.
Yassin is survived by his wife, actress Shahira, their daughter Rania and their son Amr.
