Jordanian actress has taken part in the opening ceremony of the 21st edition of Zarqa Summer Arab Theater Festival last night.
The Abu Awwad Lane star has caught the attention by debuting a striking and bold hairstyle that was contrary to her character and artistic status.
The new hairdo even pushed the audience to question whether she’s suffering from a specific illness, or if she’s getting ready to play a new role that needed that look.
Abeer Issa makes a statement regarding her haircut
The Jordanian artist explained in a statement to Al-Ghad newspaper that she does not suffer from any illness or health problem that prompted her to shave her hair in a strange way.
She added: “I did this out of change and boldness, and thank God I do not suffer from any disease, as I heard from people’s opinions.”
Issa stressed that the haircut has nothing to do with a new role she plays in any current or future project.
