The award-winning Netflix show, The Crown, is coming back for its fifth season in November, and emerging Egyptian actor Ahmed Ghozzi is joining its star-studded cast, playing the role of young Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi. The royal-historical drama has garnered success internationally having amassed over 20 Emmy awards and five BAFTA awards.

The young actor has been making waves locally - and soon internationally - with his role in ‘Al Ikhtiyar’ in 2021, and ‘El Meshwar’ in 2022. He will be the third Egyptian actor to join The Crown’s cast, alongside Egyptian-British actor Khaled Abdalla as Dodi Al-Fayed, and Amir El-Masry as a young Mohamed Al-Fayed.
