Marjan is a stage and film actor based in the San Francisco Bay area. Born and raised in Iran she came to the US to attend college, where she studied architecture and historic preservation. After working in the field for several years, she decided to take acting classes on a whim and was completely caught off guard by how much she loved it. Hence she started a new life and journey as an actor. She started taking acting classes ferociously at ACT and Berkeley Repertory among other studios. She has also been studying continuously at Seydway Studios, with Richard Seyd for the past three years. She was last seen as Rebecca and Mrs. Soames in Our Town at the Contra Costa Civic Theatre.
