Delighted to announce that the short film NIGHT JOURNEY written and directed by Jasper Shah will be screened at the FESTIVAL DE CANNES, which will also be its World Premiere! I played the lead role ‘Young’, a determined research chemist on a mission to solve a mystery through the dangerous effects of severe sleep deprivation.
After weeks of filming in Dubai, my first time to the Middle East, I am now back in London and getting ready for the filming we have this side of the world. It was an absolutely incredible experience to have the privilege to visit Dubai for this TV drama series, to work with a large cast and crew in beautiful settings has been a rich and glorious treat. I was spoilt from the word go by the lovely Anahita, with roses on my arrival, a desert safari and dinner on a boat in the Creek, amongst other things! Feeling very thankful for the experience, I cannot wait to see where else my work will take me.
Thank you Anas for showing me around your home city, Abu Dhabi!
