Life Story of Shohreh Aghdashloo

Shohreh Aghdashloo was born Shohreh Vaziri-Tabar on May 11, 1952 in Tehran, Iran. In the 1970s at age 20, she achieved nationwide stardom in her homeland of Iran, starring in some prominent pictures such as The Report (1977) directed by the renowned Abbas Kiarostami, which won critics awards at the Moscow Film Festival. In 1978, she won wider acclaim and established herself as one of Iran's leading ladies with Desiderium (1978) directed by the late Ali Hatami. During the 1978 Islamic revolution, Aghdashloo left Iran for England, to complete her education. Her interest in politics and her concern for social injustice in the world would lead her to receive a Bachelor's degree in International Relations.

She continued to pursue her acting career, which eventually brought her to Los Angeles, California in 1987. She went on to marry actor/playwright Houshang Touzie, performing in a number of his plays, successfully taking them to national and international stages. However, this was not easy getting work in Hollywood as a Middle Eastern actress with an accent; she had roles in some decent, though not great, films, including Twenty Bucks (1993), Surviving Paradise (2000)...

"Shohreh" means "famous girl" in Farsi language, and it's a popular name for Persian women.

Ben Kingsley, Shohreh Aghdashloo, and Jonathan Ahdout in Haus aus Sand und Nebel (2003)

In 2005, she appeared on the television series 24 (2001) playing the murderous matriarch of a Turkish/Muslim family terrorist cell. Though normally reluctant to play terrorists, Aghdashloo was attracted to the complexity of the character, which was exemplified by the contradiction between being a ruthless killer and a loving mother. Though her playing a terrorist did attract criticism, particularly from the Persian and Muslim community, Shohreh steadfastly defended the role.

As far as her 24 (2001) character goes, she said that her job as an actress is to not judge the character but to portray her as objectively and honestly as possible.

Always introduces her ex-husband Aydin Aghdashloo as one of the best artists in the world. She was chosen to be the best actress of Iran (1978) just a year before Iran's revolution.
