Atika HalabiPlayed by Lubna Azabal

Nanny to Ephra and Rachel's children, Atika is a trusted and loyal employee of the Stein Family and often seen in and around the family home. Not only a loving Nanny to Ephra and Rachel's son and daughter, she also raises her own son, Kasim, who she is fiercely protective over. Having first encountered the Stein Family eight years previously while working as a translator for Nessa during a trip to Gaza, she has formed a close bond to Nessa and the friendship between these two women runs deeper than anyone could ever imagine. While her public persona is that of unwavering duty and servitude to the Stein family, she is the keeper of a secret so intense that it has the power to rip the family apart, and she must battle her conscience as she becomes a pawn in a game engineered by Nessa's tormentors, who are intent on ruining her.
