Won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress for HBO's House of Saddam, first Iranian actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for House of Sand and Fog. Featured in a many prime-time television shows and a few award winning films. I enjoy the roles that resonate with audiences worldwide. Born and raised in Tehran, I moved to London in the 1970's to study international relations and global affairs, earning a Bachelor of Arts. A practicing philanthropist, as always little generosity to spread. Most often recognized by my voice, influence on fashion, and embracing my fellow women of all ages and nationalities.
