Following his lead role in the critically acclaimed British film Limbo as well as star turns in Netflix’s ‘The One’, ‘Industry’, ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ and hit Egyptian Ramadan TV series ‘Al Ikhtiyar’, BAFTA award-winning Egyptian actor Amir El Masry rises to the occasion once more having landed the role of a young Mohamed Al-Fayed in the new season of blockbuster Netflix drama ‘The Crown’.


Egyptian business mogul and former Harrods owner Mohamed Al-Fayed is the father of Dody Al-Fayed, the businessman who famously courted Princess Diana and died tragically alongside her in a car accident in Paris in 1997 following a paparazzi car chase. With years of controversy surrounding this particular moment in history, this is bound to be one of the most closely watched storylines in the show’s history.
