(WSYR-TV) — There’s great excitement in the air, as Famous Artists’ Broadway-in-Syracuse brings Disney’s “Aladdin” to the Landmark Theatre this week.

We have a chance to one of the people making the magic. The actress who brings “Jasmine” to life on the national tour: Senzel Ahmady.

Princess Jasmine is a dream role of hers.

“Jasmine was everything to me as a little girl. She was my favorite Disney Princess because she was the only brown Disney Princess that I got. So growing up she was always my representation. Aladdin was always one of my favorite movies to the point where I forced my parents to name one of my little sisters Jasmine and she is Jasmine.”

Senzel Ahmadi, Actress
