Among the top actors from Iran who are now seen in Hollywood are Bahman Ghafari, Ebrahim Karroubi, Elvis Presley and Sehma Aloe. The most recent addition to this list is Sehma Aloe who has become known for her role in the movie “Man on the Moon” and “The Firm”. The list of actors from Iran who have become famous in Hollywood includes Behnam Dabhi, Karim Benzema, Ali Nassri and Behdad Jafari. Of course, there are many more actors and actresses that come from this country and have become famous all across the world including actresses Hamreen Ghani, Hana Ashrafian and Serena Chaplin.
One interesting thing that we should keep in mind is the fact that many of the leading and popular actors from Iran are actually originally from Pakistan. Behnam Dabhi began his career in movies in India while Ali Nassri was actually from Pakistan. You may not think of this, but it is true. So, we can see a parallel between Behnam Dabhi and Ali Nassri while we are also seeing a parallel between Sehma Aloe and Bahman Ghafari.
The films of Behnam Dabhi and Ali Nassri are some of the best Iranian movies ever made. These two stars from Iran who became famous in Hollywood are the great examples of how art and cinema can collaborate and work hand in hand for a smooth Hollywood production. In fact, it is also a perfect example of how hard work and dedication can help any actor or actress shine in the international limelight. Of course, there is no guarantee that you will be able to be on television or in a film and be known because Behnam Dabhi and Ali Nassri were able to do this because they worked hard and achieved a lot. Therefore, if you want to be known and have a chance to act then you should work even harder.
