Osman Omar in Africa sotto i mari

Omar Osman


He was a non-professional child actor, presumably Eritrean, who starred in only one Italian film, Africa sotto i mari,  in the role of native Ali. Shot in Eritrea in 1952, Africa sotto i mari is well known for its underwater shots and especially for being the first feature starring newly renamed Sophia Loren.
