Biography and Age

Nazanin Boniadi was born on May 22, 1980 in Tehran, Iran. Born at the height of the Iranian Revolution, Boniadi's folks relocated to London where she was raised with an emphasis on education. While she was associated with theater right off the bat, Boniadi later chose a path to turn into a doctor. She moved to the United States to go to the University of California, Irvine, where she got her Bachelor's Degree, with Honors in Biological Sciences and won the Undergraduate Research Award.

Changing gears to pursue her first love, Boniadi then chose to study acting, which included preparing in Contemporary Drama at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London under the supervision of Lloyd Trott.


Nazanin Boniadi was in a romantic relationship with Tom Cruise from 2004 and 2005. Nazanin Boniadi was a member of the Church of Scientology just like her mom. While she was as yet a member of the congregation, Boniadi started volunteering for the Office of Special Affairs in Los Angeles. In the same time frame, the congregation official, Greg Wilhere told her that she had been decided for a higher task.

In the wake of satisfying the tasks that were expected of her, she traveled to New York and became the sweetheart for Tom Cruise. The relationship finished in 2005 due to Cruise's savage inclinations and hissy fits. The congregation was clearly not content with the separation and looked to rebuff her by making her work odd hours into the night. She has since left the Church of Scientology and now recognizes as a non-practicing Muslim.

Career and Net Worth

Nazanin Boniadi co-featured as CIA examiner Fara Sherazi on the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning drama "Homeland" for which she shared a 2015 SAG Award nomination in the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series class. Boniadi then went on to start with Armie Hammer and Dev Patel in the film Hotel Mumbai. The film was based on the real story of the assault on Mumbai's notorious Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. She also stars with J.K. Simmons in the first Starz series "Counterpart", a government agent spine chiller made by Justin Marks and officially produced by Marks and Morten Tyldum. Boniadi plays Clare, a confounding young lady of inquisitive root who turns into a significant key part as the season goes on.

In December 2019, the film Bombshell was released in theaters. Nazanin stars in the film as Rudi Bakhtiar.
