Shazia Bibi plays Nadia.

Shazia is a bilingual artist who has graduated in English Literature and Drama from University of Huddersfield. As well as acting, she writes and dances. As a performer and writer, Shazia believes that art and media have the power to share and represent stories and messages from around the world. One of the reasons Shazia was attracted to the story of Nadia and Bradley was because despite their different backgrounds, ultimately they were two young individual’s seeking something bigger than themselves.
