What attracted you to play this role apart from obviously being asked by the director? I like that some of the proceeds to this film go to charity.I like that an issue, about divorce being like a stigma issue within the Muslim community is being talked about and I liked the cast and you know Oz brought a lot of warmth to the movie, you know the way he directed it, it’s such a sweet little kind of fun film, it will leave you feeling really good.Whether you’re working on film or TV, you’ve frequently displayed a wonderful talent for sarcasm and often very funny put downs and obviously comic humour. Are you naturally gifted in that sense, because most of your roles, whether film or TV have been down that route? I have a very very dark sense of humour and it comes out through sarcasm for sure. So, is that what draws you to these kinds of roles? I like anything were you can combine, kind of empathy for a character with a sense of humour.
