Get to Know Marwan Kenzari & His Girlfriend Nora Ponse!

Marwan Kenzari plays one half of a gay couple in the new Netflix action movie The Old Guard, but in real life he is in a relationship with longtime girlfriend Nora Ponse.

The couple has kept a relatively low profile over the years, but they have walked the red carpet together a few times and they recently put their relationship in the spotlight with a Vogue Netherlands cover shoot.

Marwan and Nora have been dating for over two years now, though they have known each other for even longer.

“I think it’s good that we first figured out who we wanted to be in life,” Nora told Vogue Netherlands. “With Marwan, the foundation is strong. Because we find the same things important in life and because we have known each other for so long.”

Marwan‘s break-out role in America was when he portrayed Jafar in the live-action version of Disney’s Aladdin last year. He also appeared in films like Murder on the Orient Express, What Happened to Monday, and The Mummy.

Nora is a model who has appeared on the covers of many magazines and in lots of fashion campaigns.

Tessa Thompson Goes For Olympic Gold in Fencing Movie 'Balestra'

Tessa Thompson is going to make her fencing dreams come true – in her upcoming movie, Balestra.

Set to star opposite Marwan Kenzari, the 36-year-old star will also be an executive producer on the movie that will be directed by Nicole Dorsey.

Balestra follows a competitive fencer (Thompson) at the end of her career who is desperate to be the world’s best.

In order to gain an edge, she pursues an experimental technology, allowing her to train via lucid dreaming, where she begins a tumultuous affair with her instructor (Kenzari) that threatens her real world marriage and her pathway to Olympic gold.

“Like the sport that Balestra explores, the conception of this piece is sharp and riveting – its is a fascinating look at the price of winning, and what trouble dreams can become when our sense of self worth, reality and identity are tethered too tightly to them,” Tessa shared in a statement, according to Deadline.

She adds, “To embark on this journey, both in front of the lens and behind it, with Nicole Dorsey and this phenomenal team is a dream to me – a most beautiful one.”

Just recently, Tessa gave some insight into the upcoming Thor movie, Love and Thunder.

Will Smith & Mena Massoud Recall Their First Meeting & It's Awkward & Hilarious All At Once

Will Smith hangs out with Navid Negahban and choreographer Jamal Sims inside the official after party for the premiere of Aladdin, held at Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood on Tuesday night (May 21).

The trio was joined by Naomi Scott, Mena Massoud, Marwan Kenzari, Numan Acar, with composer Alan Menken, and director Guy Ritchie inside the party.

Speaking with ET at the premiere, Mena opened up about his first meeting with Will.

“First time I met him, I mean, I grew up watching his films, so I was really nervous and I forgot to introduce myself,” he shared. “And [director] Guy Ritchie was there, so I thought he was gonna help break the ice! But he didn’t, so I had to back track a little [and introduce myself]. Guy [left] me hanging, and I’ve brought that up several times.”

Will added about the funny meeting, “We’re on set, and there’s 200 dancers standing around, and I’m taking to the director, and then this dude just comes up and he’s standing in our conversation, and I’m like, ‘That’s a bold-a** dancer, [who's] going to stand there in the middle of the director and the genie in this conversation.’ And he just stood there and he didn’t say nothing! He just smiled and then walked away.”

“I came back later, because I didn’t really tell him who I was,” Mena added. “So I came back and introduced myself.”
