Amy-Leigh Hickman’s Background & Ethnicity: Know About the Nadia Actress; Is She Married to Shaheen Jafargholi?

Talking about her background, Amy-Leigh Hickman from Netflix’s You Season 4 was born on September 15, 1997, in England. Meanwhile, she is of mixed (British-Indian) ethnicity as she comes from an Anglo-Indian family. Talking about her relationship status, the Nadia actress is currently dating Welsh singer & actor, Shaheen Jafargholi. However, the couple has yet to get married.

The fourth season of Netflix‘s You ends with Joe Goldberg once more discovering a method for wiping everything from his history and beginning over. This time, he attempted a new life as Jonathan Moore rather than Joe Goldberg. He came close to succeeding until his actual character caught up with him. During it all, his student Nadia came the closest to understanding him.

Joe had always made Nadia anxious. He didn’t seem to be a typical English professor, and at first, she assumed he was unique because he was an American living in London and represented a distinct culture. Yet, as deaths began to pile up around them, Nadia gradually grew suspicious of Joe and finally learned about some of his most cruel deeds. It seems reasonable that Joe would want her gone as he begins a new life with Kate, especially because she is one of the few individuals who are aware of his background as a serial murderer.

On the other hand, many viewers have been interested to know more about the Nadia actress, Amy-Leigh Hickman, including her background and ethnicity. Well, we’ve got you covered.
