Iranian actress Shohreh Aghdashloo (@SAghdashloo) is an Emmy Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated actress who currently stars as a powerful politician in the Syfy channel show “The Expanse.”

As she tells Here & Now‘s Meghna Chakrabarti, the role allows her to continue the mission that she set for herself when she left Iran shortly after the 1979 revolution: to participate in storytelling that is both meaningful and enlightening.
