Nathalie Issa – The Swimmer

In this episode I interview Nathalie Issa, the star of the Netflix film The Swimmers.
Nathalie plays the part of Yusra Mardini who is training to be an Olympian swimmer in Syria when she has to flee the coutry with her sister and cousin. What follows (in this true story) is their journey as refugees which includes swimming a sinking boat of fellow refugees to safety in the sea.
The film is exceptional in the way that it humanises refugees and Nathalie’s performance is breathtaking.
