The TV Presenter and actress “Fakhri Khorvash” in the U.S.
Know somebody there already? Great! Pester them to help you out and buy them dinner and gifts as a thank-you when you arrive. Laying the groundwork can be awesome: I rented an apartment in England before I even arrived the second time around, because some mates were willing to go scope out potential places for me. People who are there already can keep an eye out for jobs, recommend good banks and places to shop cheaply, and generally fill you up with Local Knowledge. Milk them. Khorvash’s performance in Prince Ehtejab (1974) as the hapless maid forced by the eponymous prince to pretend to be his wife was well-received. In 1976, Khorvash starred in Mohammad Reza Aslani’s Chess of the Wind (Shatranj-e Baad). Criticising the royal government and featuring understated as well a strong female protagonist, it was suppressed after only two screenings. The reels were feared lost and only resurfaced in 2014. Khorvash played a paraplegic woman who is hounded by various relatives to give up her fortune.
