As clips of her and her brother putting on a show came up, she is heard explaining: "When I was young, I used to make home videos. My father would be the cameraman… my brother would be my actor, and I would be the director."
She hilariously recalled how she would "boss everyone around," painting a picture of young Salma: "I would be telling my father, 'No, no, you shoot from here,' or, 'No, Sami, you're not supposed to do it that way," as more footage appeared of her directing her brother in Spanish.
The renowned actress, even with all her accolades, still candidly confessed that: "The truth is that my brother is much more talented than me, and I ended up being the actress."

Nonetheless, even her directing experience as a child has obviously paid off, and the mother-of-one has been focusing on producing rather than appearing in movies and series, most recently with her work for Santa Evita and an untitled project about a diplomas living in London.
In the tribute to him, she wrote: "Happy Birthday to the best brother ever! Sami I adore you! Always have and always will."
