Tavis Smiley interview

Interview

Aghdashloo discusses her career and new memoir, The Alley of Love and Yellow Jasmines, in this interview for PBS.

I was born an actress. Since I was four or five years old, I mocked each and every member of the family. As a matter of fact, after a while it turned into entertaining sort of nights for my parents and families.

Emmy nomination

Nomination

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences nominates Aghdashloo for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Sajida Talfah on House of Saddam.

It looked like such a longshot after looking at the list of actors. I thought it would be such a tough shot to get the nomination. So I slept in until my husband woke me up and said, ‘I think your mother is calling, because she is calling every phone.’ So I called my friend after I tried my mother, and she told me is this what Emmy nominees do, they sleep through all this praise. That’s when I figured I got the nomination.
