MAY CALAMAWY (Hulu’s RAMY Season 3): “Playing Dena Hassan, I have learned to have compassion”

Raquel Laguna/ SUCOPRESS. Actress MAY CALAMAWY plays Dena Hassan in Hulu’s RAMY, written, directed, executive-produced and created by star Ramy Yousse. In this interview, May talks about season 3 of the show, about what she has learned playing her character and also about the message of the successful series. Golden Globe Award-winning actor Ramy Youssef returns to Hulu for his critically acclaimed performance in the Hulu Original comedy series RAMY. The series follows first-generation, Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan (Youssef) and his family as they navigate spirituality in their politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. RAMY continues to bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists. In the third season, his family is forced to confront having lived a life dedicated to worldly concerns – and in some cases, lies – while Ramy all but abandons his spiritual journey, instead of dedicating himself to him and his uncle’s diamond business. The series stars Youssef, Laith Nakli, Hiam Abbass, Amr Waked, May Calamawy, Dave Merheje, Mohammed Amer and Steve Way. Season 3 of RAMY premieres on Hulu on September 30th.
