Who is Yasmin Kara-Hanai in Industry?

After episode one, we still knew very little about the stunning Yasmin – apart from an apparent simmering sexual chemistry with fellow trainee Robert.

She’s certainly keen to make an impression by buying coffees for the team.

HBO tells us that Yasmin has had expectations placed on her since childhood and is tired of being underestimated.

She chose Pierpoint as a way to prove her doubters wrong and show the world what an astute businesswoman she can be.

So watch this space!
