Early life

He was born in Alexandria, Egypt. His father, Abdul Salem Ali, was an Officer in the Egyptian Army and died in active service at the battle of Tel-el-Koiber, Egypt, in the year 1882. His mother was Sudanese. Ali would eventually lose his knowledge of Arabic and contact with his family in Egypt.

Studies abroad

He received his early training in Egypt, but whilst still young he proceeded to England where he was pursuing his education until the death of his father forced him to return to his homeland. Having settled his affairs at home he returned to England again, still as a young boy and as the ward of Canon Berry, he pursued his studies at King's College London.

Ali originally intended to take up the medical profession and had actually started on his medical studies when the news of his father's death came to him. Left to make his choice, he felt strongly the urge to write and also to go on the stage and so he left his medical studies. On completing his studies at the University of London, he went on the stage where he soon distinguished himself and it was not long before he ranked with the foremost actors of his time.
