Sharifah Nor Azean Syed Mahadzir Alyahya (born 30 May 1983), better known by her stage name Scha Alyahya, is a Malaysian actress, model and TV host.[1] She plays the lead character, Dania, a tomboy who struggles to achieve her dream of becoming a flight attendant, in the highly rated TV series Awan Dania aired on Astro Ria for three seasons that made Scha a household name.[2]

Life and career[edit]

Scha was born in Sungai Petani, Kedah[3] to a family of Malay, Hadhrami Arab and Chinese descent.[4] She is the second of four siblings.[4] She holds a Diploma in Information Technology from PTPL College, Shah Alam and previously worked as a flight stewardess in the local commercial airline, Airasia. She quit flying when she started her career after winning the Dewi Remaja beauty pageant organised by Remaja, a local Malay teen magazine, in 2006.[5] She then decided to squeeze into the showbiz world after being cast by Azizi 'Chunk' Adnan, the director of Antoofighter and creator/former director of Awan Dania series. She got the role and never looked back.
