Ahmed El-Sakka (born on March 1, 1973) is an Egyptian actor. Early in his acting career he appeared in popular series like Nesf Rabeea El-Akhar. The role that introduced him to a large audience was a co-starring role with actor Mohamed Henedi in Sa'eedi fil gamaa el amrekeia (Arabic for "A Country Man in the American University") (1998).
