The caption prompted a quick reaction from the couple's friend Omid Scobie.

"As much as the Mail would love to trigger its readers with the words "Iranian activist", the woman in this photo is actually actress Janina Gavankar."

Gavankar was born in Joliet, Illinois, to Mohra Gavankar, who immigrated to the U.S. from Punnam, Andhra Pradesh, India – she is half-Indian and half-Dutch– and Peter Ganesh Gavankar, an engineer from Mumbai, who traveled to the U.S. to pursue a master's degree.

Gavankar is trained as a pianist, vocalist, and orchestral percussionist.
