    هميشه پيش خودم فکر می کردم که ما در سراسر دنيا پزشک ايرانی خوب داريم ، مهندس ابرانی خوب داريم، وکيل زبردست ايرانی داريم، ولی چرا تو هاليوود که اين همه هنرپيشه و کارگردان هست، يک هنرپيشه خوب وجود ندارد. و به همين دليل بود که وقتی شنيدم که شهره آغداشلو توی يک فيلم بازی کرده و کانديد جايزه اسکار شده خيلی خوشحال شدم.

    اما چند وقت پيش به اسم نازنين بنيادی هنرپيشه سينما برخورد کردم که کارش را در هاليود شروع کرده. خيلی ذوق کردم و تصميم گرفتم با او يک مصاحبه بکنم.

    از او در مورد اينکه چطورشد به دنيای هنرپيشگی کشيده شد پرسيدم:

    با وجود اينکه من بيولوژی خوندم، ولی هميشه از بچگی می خواستم که هنرپيشه بشم. هشت سالم بود که اولين تئاترم را در مدرسه بازی کردم و از آنجايی که تصميم داشتم هنرپيشه بشم در اين مورد تحقيقاتی کردم و بيشتر مطمئن شدم که می خواهم اين راه را دنبال کنم.

    چند سالگی از ايران خارج شدی؟

    من بيست روزم بود که مادر و پدرم من را آوردن لندن و تا نوزده سالگی تو لندن زندگی کردم، بعدش رفتم به آمريکا و از اون موقع تو کاليفرنيا زندگی می کنم.

    با توجه به اينکه هيچوقت تو ايران زندگی نکردين چطور اينقدر زبان و لحجه فارسی شما خيلی خوبه؟

    من وقتی پنج سالم بود و توی اخبار صحنه های جنگ ايران رو می ديدم اشک می ريختم. برای مادر و پدرم خيلی عجيب بود که اين بچه کوچولو که هيچوقت هم ايرانو نديده چطور اينقدر تحت تاثير قرار می گيره. علتش اين بود که من هميشه خودمو ايرونی ميدونستم. حتی وقتی وارد هاليوود شدم، خيلی ها بهم گفتن اسمتو عوض کن، يه اسمی برای خودت انتخاب کن که تلفظ کردنش برای آمريکايی ها راحت تر باشه، ولی من اينکارو نکردم چون من يه هنر پيشه ايرونی ام و اسمم هم به فارسی معنيش خيلی قشنگه.

    چطور وارد هاليوود شدی؟

    يکی از دوستای خيلی خوب من هنرپيشه بود و اون منو تشويق کرد که هنرپيشه بشم. من هميشه علاقه داشتم به مردم کمک کنم و فکر می کردم تنها راه کمک به مردم اينه که آدم پزشک بشه. ولی اين دوستم برام توضيح داد که اگه آدم هنرپيشه هم باشه می تونه توی کارهای خيريه شرکت کنه. من الان توی يک موسسه ای عضوم که کارهای حقوق بشر می کنه و مردم با موضوعات مربوط حقوق بشر آشنا می کنه.

    الان مشغول چه کار هنری ای هستين؟

    من الان مشغول بازی در دو تا فيلم هاليوودی هستم. يکی از اين فيلمها اسمش هست "گيم فيس"، که من توش نقش اول بازی می کنم. هردوی اين فيلمها در سال ۲۰۰۷ آماده ميشه.

    ورود به هاليوود خيلی سخت بود؟

    آسان نبود ولی من چون کلاسهای مختلف هنرپيشگی رو گذرونده بودم، و با آمادگی برای تستها رفته بودم بالاخره تونستم وارد هاليوود بشم.

    فرهنگ خانوادگی شما چطور با ورود تون به هاليوود برخورد کرد؟

    من فکر می کنم علت اينکه خانواده های ايرونی خيلی ازهنر پشتيبانی نمی کنن اينه که هيچ نمونه خوبی و موفقی نديدن، برای همين يه مقدار نگرانند. ولی تا موقعی که ما تلاش نکنيم که نمونه های خوبی در اين رشته ها داشته باشيم اين وضع بهتر نمی شه. من هم اولش مجبور شدم با پدر و مادرم صحبت کنم و اونا هم که علاقه منو ديدن راضی شدن و خيلی هم ازم حمايت کردن.

    الگوهای شما کی هستن؟

    اولين الگوهای من مادرم و پدرم هستن. در هنرپيشگی هم خانم مری آپيک، خانم شهره آغداشلو و خانم ادری هپبورن هستن که نمونه های خيلی خوبی بودن برای من ومن هنوز خيلی بايد تلاش کنم تا به اونا برسم.

    Our very own Nazanin Boniadi has landed the role of student nurse at General Hospital’s Night Shift. This series is a primetime, weekly spin-off of the popular daytime show, General Hospital. Nazanin recently wrote in and gave us an update. She recently attended the 2007 daytime Emmy Awards for her role in the series.


    I asked her how she landed the role. She said, “Thousands of headshots were submitted to ABC for the role of student nurse Stacey. All it said on the breakdowns was 'early twenties, any ethnicity'. I was told they auditioned around 700 girls for the 3 student nurses they chose: myself (Iranian), Amanda Baker (Caucasian), and Angel Wainwright (African-American). When I walked in the first audition there were at least 20 girls there at the same time as me.

    I remember looking around me and thinking 'are we all up for the same role?' And sure enough, we were! This was all about good acting and not fitting a certain look per se. After that, there were 2 call backs and each time there were still a vast variety of ethnicities there. Overall, it was a three week process of waiting and anticipating what could happen. Finally, I got the call and heard I got one of the three student nurse roles! Once they chose me, they named my character 'Leyla Mir' and I met several times with Robert Guza, the head writer of General Hospital, and the new show, General Hospital Night Shift, to establish this Iranian-British character. Since I personally grew up in London, Robert decided to have me keep my British accent and really write me in as an Iranian who grew up in England and is now studying in the US.



    There are many similarities between Leyla and me, which I credit to Robert Guza's incredible ability to study his cast and use subtle nuances to build believable and true to life characters.”


    The current schedule for General Hospital’s Night Shift is very demanding. The series shoots a whole episode in just one day, as they use the same set as General Hospital. Recordings go four days per week and the first day on set, Nazanin spent 16 hours on the job. Her second day she was there 19 hours. Sounds to me like she has the hours of a real nurse!

    Between table reads, fittings and promotional work, she has been very busy but counts her blessings, as she quotes that only about 5% of actors in Hollywood are working at any given time. (now I know why there are so many cars on the 405).

    Nazanin is excited about the role because according to her, it’s the first time an American TV series has cast Iranians in positive, everyday roles as Iranians. Nazanin plays a student nurse along side Iranian Dominic Rains (aka Amin Nazemzadeh) in the role of a doctor. She says, “We are not terrorists or battered wives. We are just citizens, who happen to be Iranian. This is groundbreaking and we should applaud Disney, ABC and SOAPnet for being the first to do this! Although there are Iranians who currently have series regular roles, for example Maz Jobrani plays an Indian on Knights of Prosperity, they are not playing Iranians. This is truly an honor for me and Dominic!”



    Both actors have recurring roles on daytime General Hospital, as they cross back and forth on the two shows. General Hospital which has been airing for 44 years, gave A-listers like Demi Moore and Meg Ryan their start in Hollywood.

    The first episodes of General Hospital can be seen at 2pm Pacific Time on ABC on July 4th and 5th. General Hospital Night Shift premieres Thursday July 12th at 11pm on SOAPnet.

    Nazanin studied Biology in college and was a great pre-med student. She won the “Chang Pin-Chun” Undergraduate Research Award for her work in heart-transplant rejection and cancer research. It is therefore very fitting that she at least get to play a nurse on television. I am sure her parents are very proud of her new role as well.


    We wish Nazanin the best of luck!

    In a recent report I had announced that Fansites in the US had announced that Shaun Toub was to be cast as the Comic Book Super Villian The Mandarin However it seems that the Iranian American actor is now cast as Yinsen according to imdb.com. As all Hollywood Super Productions such films are often surrounded by all sorts of rumours and counter rumours sometimes encouraged by the Studio's who wish to shoot their film in high secrecy.

    Lately Variety reported that British Iranian actress Nazanin Boniadi (CW's The Game) has booked a supporting role in Iron Man.

    Boniadi has apparently joined Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges, Shaun Toub, Leslie Bibb, Bill Smitrovich, Nazanin Boniadi in the superhero film, directed by Jon Favreau. However imdb,com a fairly reliable source has not yet confirmed this news.

    Based on the long-running Marvel comic book series, Iron Man tells the story of Tony Stark, the enigmatic heir to the Stark Enterprises fortune. A driven inventor and executive who seems to have it all, Tony is haunted by his dark side. Though he commands his empire by day, by night he secretly becomes Iron Man, the living embodiment of decades of defense spending and innovation. Strapping on billions of dollars worth of state-of-the-art armor and weaponry each night to fight crime, terrorism and corporate espionage, Tony begins to crack under the strain of his fractured lifestyle and must ultimately confront the one enemy he can never beat -- himself.


    Boniadi is also said to have booked in a supporting role in Paramount's 'Charlie Wilson's War' Mike Nichols directs 'Charlie' while Jon Favreau helms 'Iron Man.'

    In anycase Good luck to the beautiful rising Star of General Hospital: Night Shift .
