Behind the scenes

Omar bin Ghazali was played by Michael Saad.


  • Despite what some may believe, his name is not similar to Osama bin Laden (bin / ben), as 'bin' (or often misspelled & mispronounced as 'ben') is not a middle name. 'bin' (pronounced as 'ibin/ibn') is used to refer to the father of a male Muslim individual, and is similar to son of (e.g: Kane, son of Adam). As for female, 'binti' is used instead.
