To her Scottish mother Suzy’s distress, Gaby declared, “my name is Ghazala” and turned her back on ‘Gaby’ and seemingly, the West.

Louise Fairley (who the character ‘Suzy’ is based on)

‘It was like going back in time and looking at us all, it was so surreal’
Molly Campbell (who the character Gaby/Ghazala is based on)
