Born of Moroccan and Indian parents, Laila's been making a lot of tv and stuff - Footballers' Wives, roles in British soaps Family Affairs and Hollyoaks, the ninth series of Spooks, and most recently the Holby City series. She also has a good resumé in the movies, making films that have strong messages and meanings. Of course, I know her best from her role as Dr. Sarah Page in the Primeval tv series.
While I understand her reasons for leaving the Primeval tv series, I still love her as an actress, and watch her appearances in tv and film whenever I can.
Happy Birthday, Laila! Hope you are having a marvellous birthday today, and that you have a terrific year ahead of you!
