Taraneh Alidoosti (Persian: ترانه عليدوستی ‎‎, born 12 January 1984) is a Crystal-Simorgh winning Iranian actress.[1] In a poll conducted among 130 film critics by Sanate Cinema magazine, she was voted the best Iranian TV actress of the decade. She has been suggested to be one of the best actresses in Iran. In 2012, a similar poll by the Film Monthly Magazine also chose her as the best actress of the decade.[2][3]


She began her acting career at age 17 with the leading role in I’m Taraneh, 15 (Rasul Sadr Ameli, 2002). Critics praised her performance as a defiant 15-year-old girl who after a failed relationship is determined to rear a child on her own, while struggling with poverty and social stigma. She won the Bronze Leopard for Best Actress from the Locarno International Film Festival in 2002,[4] as well as the Crystal Simorgh for Best Actress from the 20th Fajr Film Festival, becoming the youngest person ever to do so. Shortly after she set another record, getting nominated three consecutive times for the best actress prize at the Fajr Film Festival for her first three films. Since then she has maintained a steady but selective work flow in both theatre and cinema. She is mostly known for her choosy criteria in accepting challenging, dramatic roles, as exemplified by her long collaboration with Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi, making her one of the most acclaimed actresses of her generation. A prominent actress in Iran, she has bagged many awards and accolades to her name.

Academy Awards boycott[edit]

On January 26, 2017 Alidoosti announced she would be boycotting the 89th Academy Awards where The Salesman had been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film due to upcoming stringent visa travel restrictions that the Trump administration planned to impose on Iranians.[5]
