" The most significant event of my life was my appointment as Minister of Culture by Her Majesty King Mohammed VI, in October 2007”, says the actress who inspired filmmakers, writers and professional art critiques full of fervor over the intensity, sensitivity and intelligence of his interpretation. Poet Mostafa Nissaboury said about Touria Jabrane that she is "an artist in a state of grace ". The game, the expression, the diction and the gestures of Touria Kraytif Jabrane move and captivate audiences. The actress does not play; she is the character. " Theater is my life ", says the individual whom everyone knows as Touria Jabrane, a patronymic name unquestionably related to the world of theater even if the actress also starred in world of movies and TV, always with the same sincerity in her performance. In 1984, she won the Best Actress Award at the Baghdad Arab Festival. Also appreciated in Morocco, the late King Hassan II bestowed upon her the Wissam of the National Merit and His Majesty King Mohammed VI bestowed upon her the Wissam of Knight of the National Merit. In 2011, she was decorated by France with the Knight of the Legion of Honor. As a child, Touria Kraytif Jabrane, born in Casablanca, dreamed of being a circus artist. ”I was valiantly supported by my brothers”, she remembers. In 1967, her first appearance in a play interpreted in the context of the Youth and Sports Festival was a triumph. She enrolled at the National Conservatory of Drama in Rabat. From Shakespeare to Mohamed Al-Maghout, from Bertold Brecht to Abdellatif Laâbi, she confronts all texts and gives them her breath and fire. She performed in one of the most prestigious theaters in the world, the Royal Albert Hall in London, with the “Arab Comedians Group” (Troupe des comédiens arabes). She founded and chairs “Le Théâtre d'aujourd'hui” theater company. But among all the roles that she has incarnated, there are two that she never gets rids of, that of wife 
and that as the mother of two daughters.
