A renowned British actress has reverted to Islam. Myriam Francois-Cerrah became popular when she was a child for acting in the 90’s hit film ‘Sense and Sensibility’. Now she is gaining more popularity for being one of a growing number of educated middle class female reverts to Islam in Britain, reports said. Francois-Cerrah has referred to the September 11, 2001 events in the US as a motive behind her intellectual curiosity about Islam and as a result, her conversion. Also referring to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) as a man of peace, she cites looking into the Prophet’s life as one of several reasons why she was motivated to change her career. Francois-Cerrah describes Prophet Muhammad as one of the great misunderstood figures of history. Meanwhile, an MTV host in Germany, Kristianne Backer, whose conversion to Islam received a great deal of negative attention in the press, says she has no regrets over changing her religion. “I met a lot of famous, interesting people in life, but ultimately it was an empty life, so now I am from ‘Empty-V’, from entertainment to ‘inner-tainment.’ I had a crisis after a few years of jetting around like a circus horse, on stage, home alone, empty and I didn’t know why I was doing it and Islam was somehow introduced to me,” Backer said.
