According to previous interviews, Fairouz came to love JoJo after she turned to Japan in junior following an extended stay in Egypt. The anime not only helped Fairouz find friends, but she began joining online script readings with netizens. These after-school meetings helped Fairouz realize her love of acting, and she eventually went to school to hone her talents after pursuing vocational careers.
Clearly, Fairouz’s dedication paid off as she has scored the gig of a lifetime. The star will bring Jolyne to life on screen, so her love of JoJo has come full circle. And according to fans, they have no doubt Fairouz will crush the part once Stone Ocean makes its debut.
