Ghezal Amiri

Ghezal Amiri is a Copywriter for JustWatch with an affinity for binging the latest HBO drama while taking occasional pauses to check out what's on TCM. When she mercifully decides to give her eyes a break, she goes on 3 hour hikes with her best friend, strives to ensure her cat is aware of how special he is and listens to the entire BTS discography for the 613th time. She is also a firm believer that the curtains are never just blue.

Experience and Education

Ghezal has been a writer on the internet since 2016. After graduating with a BA in English, she's written for such outlets as Movie Pilot, ComingSoon and Vocal.Media. She has placed in a number of Vocal Challenges throughout the years and proudly curated several BTS-focused Spotify playlist articles because we are the two who found our destiny.

Favourite Movies and TV-Shows

If there is anything to know about Ghezal, it's that she diversifies when it comes to her favourites. When she wants to have a good cry, she will pop on any Miyazaki classic or Shinkai's modern masterpiece, Your Name. If she's feeling mysterious, she'll watch any noir starring Barbara Stanwyck. When she wants to pass time before her next cat cuddling session, The Golden Girls or Frasier is an absolute must. Her favourite TV series of all-time is Six Feet Under and she has seen every episode of Saved By The Bell an embarrassing (yet honestly, impressive) amount of times.
