Character creation

Actor Husein Madhavji watched documentaries and movies with autistic people to prepare for the role, such as My Name Is Khan. He also went to a social outing of the Asperger's Society of Ontario.[2]


Dr. Hamza is a neurosurgeon at Hope Zion hospital. He is very good at his craft and well-respected by his fellow doctors.[3]


While his profile on the Saving Hope website establishes his autism from the get-go, this is only explicitly stated within the show itself in season 2, episode 11. His profile on the website describes him has having mild Asperger syndrome[4][5] and as an aspie neurosurgeon[6]
