The Syrian Coalition mourned the death of Syrian actress Fadwa Suleiman who passed away today (Thursday, August 17) after a struggle with disease.
Fadwa became known for her outspoken support for the Syrian revolution against the Assad regime since day one. She also led protests and sit-ins demanding the downfall of the Assad regime and chanting for freedom and dignity.
After she was forced to leave Syria, Fadwa co-organized and participated in many events around the world to publicize the Syrian revolution and its goals against dictatorship and tyranny.
The Coalition extended its heartfelt condolences to the family of Fadwa, her friends, and the youth of the Syrian revolution and its activists “who lost one of the symbols of the Syrian revolution.”
“In addition to becoming one of the most recognized faces of the revolution, Fadwa provided an excellent model of national unity and for the free actress,” said the Coalition in a press release issued on Thursday.
Born in 1970, Fadwa pursued an acting career after she graduated from the Higher Institute of Theatrical Arts in Damascus. She performed in numerous plays, TV dramas, films, radio programs, and dubbing roles prior to the start of the Syrian revolution. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
