When peo­ple seem eon TV or on the red car­pet, they as­sume I’m a big fashionista be­cause I’m al­ways dressed up and look glam­orous. But of­f­cam­era, I’ m very much a dress-down girl. Week­ends are when I can slip on some loose trousers and train­ers and re­lax. I try to avoid wear­ing heels when pos­si­ble. I likemy clothes to look good and also be comfy.


I’ m from Le­banon but live in Lon­don and I love the city. We’re al­ways out ex­plor­ing a dif­fer­ent part of town. There’ s al­ways some­thing new and ex­cit­ing go­ing on here.


My favourite way to chill out is to catch up with the lat­est movies and TV. I’m very lucky be­cause my pro­fes­sion is also my pas­sion. I’m a movie buff. Per­haps on a week­end I pre­fer a com­edy, but re­ally, I’ll watch any­thing.


There is no way I could live with­out my tablet. I take it every­where, likemy purse. I use it to stream movies and TV, plan my week, record ideas and keep in touch with fans of the show through so­cial me­dia. I love so­cial­me­dia. It en­ables you to re­ally com­mu­ni­cate with peo­ple, get feed­back and lis­ten to ideas. Hav­ing said that, I’m more about Twit­ter than In­sta­gram, which seems a lit­tle too nar­cis­sis­tic to me.
