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 15-year-old girl who, after a failed relationship, is determined to rear a child on her own while struggling with poverty and social disapproval. She won the Bronze Leopard for Best Actress from the Locarno International Film Festival in 2002 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 workflow in both theater and cinema.
