Get to know the American born Egyptian-Jordanian actress and model Zara Jirgis, as she becomes the next sought out Arab star
HEY ZARA, WELCOME TO ABOUT INSIDER! CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS ZARA NICOLE JIRGIS IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
Zara Jirgis is a young American born Egyptian Jordanian Actress and Model who has been in several television shows, commercials and lots of print work. During her free time she loves to be outdoors playing with her siblings and trying new things.
HOW DID YOU START, AND HOW WAS YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE IN THE INDUSTRY?
I started in the entertainment industry at the young age of 3 years old and absolutely loved it. My first experience was booking my first audition for Disney’s “Dream Big Princess” campaign and from then on the bookings kept rolling in with Disney and several others.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY FROM DISNEY’S PRINCESS JASMINE TO YOUNG SELENA GOMEZ.
I absolutely loved being the face of Princess Jasmine for several years right around the time the new live action Aladdin movie came out. The whole experience was simply amazing and I loved every single second of it. Playing young Selena Gomez felt as though I all the sudden grew up. It was still a wonderful experience and I am always blessed for each job I get.
ZARA NICOLE JIRGIS IS A RENOWNED NAME TODAY; HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT ALL THE SUCCESS YOU HAVE ACHIEVED AT SUCH A TENDER AGE?
I honestly still can’t believe it. There are many times I’ll be with my mom shopping in the toy isles and little girls would notice me and have me sign their Princess Jasmine toy boxes that they are about to purchase. I’m so grateful for all the opportunities i get and grateful for all my fans.
YOU HAVE ALSO BEGUN BEING A JUNIOR REPORTER ON THE RED CARPETS INTERVIEWING CELEBRITIES RECENTLY. HOW DO YOU LIKE IT SO FAR?
I have recently began doing red carpet interviews at movie and television show premieres and it’s such a wonderful experience. I love getting to be on both sides of the red carpet….walking the red carpet for photos….and then interviewing celebrities on the red carpet. I get to ask them anything I want and have that one on one time. I also love that I can pretty much get every single celebrity I interview to laugh.
HOW DID ACTING CHANGE YOUR LIFE?
Acting hasn’t really changed my life. It’s just taught me time management because you really need to know how to manage your time.
IS THERE A SPECIFIC TELEVISION SHOW OR MOVIE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE IN?
I would love to be cast in the upcoming Disney’s Aladdin 2 live action movie alongside Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott! That would be such a dream role!
WHAT’S SOMETHING WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU THAT MIGHT SURPRISE US?
I’m a really great artist! I can literally any cartoon character by memory!
ANY UPCOMING PROJECTS/ROLES YOU CAN TALK ABOUT?
I do have two things I am currently working on but unfortunately I’m unable to discuss any of them at the moment. But they are something good! So make sure to follow me to stay updated!
WHAT IS ONE MESSAGE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE TO YOUR FANS?
Always be who you are and don’t change for anyone. Do what makes YOU happy!
