My Story:

My name is Mehrnaz Mohammadi. I was born and raised in Iran, and as a little girl, I dreamt of flying away, exploring the world, and truly living a life of a free bird. I moved to Montreal at the age of 19, and obtained a BFA in Theatre Performance from Concordia University. I also studied Chinese opera at NACTA in Beijing. 

In 2014, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a MFA in Acting from the USC School of Dramatic Arts, where I also received an International Artist Fellowship.  I graduated with her MFA in May 2017. I've done number of Plays in Montreal, Minneapolis and Los Angeles such as, Scorched, The seventh Seal, Antigone, Angels in America and Dead Hands. My journey started from a dream, and the dream continues to unfold.
