Eslami, Hadi (born November 8, 1939, Tehran - died August 1993)
The late Iranian actor was born in one of Tehran’s oldest neighborhoods and entered the world of acting when he was in high school.
Just after finishing school in 1967, he wrote and performed in his first play which was quite successful at the time. Following this success, Eslami continued stage acting.
He entered the film industry after the Islamic Revolution with the movie 'The Devil’s Hand' (1981).
He subsequently took roles in many movies, including 'The Bus' (1985), and 'The Courtship' (1989), winning several nominations and awards for his outstanding performances.
Eslami won the Best Actor Golden Plaque for 'The Bus' at the 4th Fajr International Film Festival.
Besides movies, Eslami also appeared in a few TV dramas, including 'Scops owl' (1986), in which he played the role of the Constitutional Revolution figure and cleric Seyyed Hassan Modarres.
After years of professional acting career, Eslami decided to re-stage his very first play but passed away due to a heart attack in 1993 before he had the chance.
