Born: July 10, 1983 in Tehran, Iran

First Iranian star after the 1979 revolution to play in a major Hollywood production: Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies (2008) with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe.

After playing in Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies (2008), Golshifteh was banned from leaving her home country Iran in February 2008 on her way to London to make a screen test for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010). The role she was set to audition for eventually went to English actress Gemma Arterton. This was only reported 6 months later when she actually could leave the country. She now lives in Paris, France.
