  • Set within the nasty world of arms dealers and drug traffickers, Extraction follows a

  • mercenary named Tyler Rake who's been tasked with recovering a kidnapped boy — a boy

  • who's unwittingly become the pawn in an ongoing battle between local drug lords.

  • Avengers: Endgame helmers Anthony and Joe Russo produced the high-octane flick from

  • a script written by Joe, and they even brought along one of their mightiest heroes, Chris

  • Hemsworth, to star.

  • Extraction also features a supporting cast that features some familiar faces.

  • Stranger Things fans will of course immediately recognize David Harbour's mug, but we're betting

  • many viewers will also be trying to place the face of the woman who portrays Rake's

  • handler, Nik.

  • That's Iranian-born actor Golshifteh Farahani.

  • Having played lead roles in critically acclaimed international movies like 2011's Chicken with

  • Plums and 2009's About Elly, she's steadily becoming a rising star in the world of film.

  • Here's why she looks so familiar.

  • Over the course of the last decade, horror movie lovers have been treated to no end of

  • films about undead, reanimated masses laying waste to humanity and running amok in a post-apocalyptic

  • landscape, so much so, that the zombie genre itself has become a bit stale in recent years.

  • But every now and again, a zombie flick turns up that takes a bold new approach to the subject

  • and breathes new life into the realm of z-fiction.

  • While Dominique Rocher's 2018 stunner The Night Eats the World didn't reinvent the zombie

  • genre, it brought a lot of fresh energy to the mix.

  • And although she wasn't in the film long, Golshifteh Farahani definitely made an impression.

  • Set in modern day Paris, the film follows the travails of Sam, who, after a night of

  • heavy partying, wakes to find the city overrun with flesh-eating ghouls and virtually no

  • sign of human life left.

  • With no other option, he barricades himself inside and tries to make a go of the apocalypse

  • solo.

  • Of course, surviving the end times on your own is far from easy, and Sam quickly begins

  • to spiral into a darkness he may not emerge from.

  • His fortunes seemingly change for the better with the unexpected arrival of Sarah, another

  • survivor.

  • Portrayed by Farahani, Sarah tries her best to make Sam see his situation in a different

  • light.

  • If you've seen the film, you'll recognize her immediately.

  • And if you haven't, well, it's definitely worth a watch.

  • In 2017, the actress set sail with Disney for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell

  • No Tales.

  • Though the film was hardly a critical smash, for many viewers, Dead Men Tell No Tales proved

  • to be a welcome return to the spirit of the original Pirates of the Caribbean after a

  • handful of increasingly cluttered sequels.

  • That had much to do with the swaggering antics of Johnny Depp, who reprised his role of Captain

  • Jack Sparrow for the film.

  • The star-studded Dead Men Tell No Tales also saw the return of several original cast members

  • like Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, not to mention a bevy of impressive new faces

  • including Javier Bardem as the villainous Captain Salazar.

  • Among those new franchise faces was Farahani, who was all but unrecognizable sans hair and

  • covered in tattoos in the role of sea witch Shansa.

  • As it happens, she was also one of the most memorable new characters to a franchise that

  • thrives on unabashed silliness and epic spectacle.

  • 2017 was a great year for Farahani, at least professionally.

  • In addition to working on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, that same year she

  • also appeared onscreen opposite Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, and Nicole Kidman in The Upside.

  • A heartwarming fish-out-of-water story about a down-on-his-luck single dad fresh out of

  • jail who becomes a caretaker for a wealthy quadriplegic, The Upside sees Hart and Cranston

  • bring some of their trademark charisma to life on the screen.

  • Even though they butt heads at the beginning, eventually they both teach each other to step

  • outside their comfort zones and live life to the fullest.

  • As the physical therapist Maggie, Farahani pops in throughout the movie for some truly

  • memorable scenes, playing the foil to Kevin Hart's larger-than-life antics and proving

  • yet again that she's perfectly at home with the biggest names in the business.

  • There are few names on the indie film scene that carry quite as much reverence as Jim

  • Jarmusch.

  • Since quietly emerging with 1984's free-wheeling dramedy Stranger Than Paradise, Jarmush has

  • applied his singular style to a dozen feature films, each of which has further established

  • him as an auteur whose work simply oozes cinematic cool.

  • Most recently, Jarmusch hit it off with the one and only Adam Driver in his 2016 drama

  • Paterson.

  • Set in Paterson, New Jersey, the film finds Driver playing a gifted poet whose day job

  • is driving a bus around the city.

  • Oh, and his name is also Paterson.

  • It's just that kind of movie.

  • The film touches on the theme of discovering uncommon beauty in the seemingly everyday

  • aspects of the world, which is reflected in the poetry Paterson writes throughout.

  • When Paterson isn't finding poetic inspiration in the world passing by his windshield, he

  • frequently finds it at home, where his impetuous wife Laura trips from one minor obsession

  • to the next.

  • Farahani played Laura, bringing a bright energy to the otherwise ponderous film.

  • Even as Golshifteh Farahani has featured in films large and small throughout her career,

  • it's likely that most American audiences had their first encounter with the actress when

  • she appeared in Ridley Scott's 2008 political thriller Body of Lies.

  • While Fahrani frequently stole the show from lead actor Leonardo DiCaprio, her character,

  • a nurse named Aisha, stole the heart of DiCaprio's character, CIA field officer Roger Ferris.

  • Set in the Middle East, Body of Lies also features a winning turn from Russell Crowe,

  • who plays DiCaprio's smooth-talking handler Ed Hoffman, and a pair of intriguing performances

  • from Mark Strong as intelligence chief Hani Salaam and Oscar Isaac as Ferris' CIA associate

  • Bassam.

  • What you may not know about Farahani's involvement in Body of Lies is that it didn't sit well

  • with government officials in her home country of Iran.

  • After appearing in the film, she was barred from leaving the country for six months as

  • punishment.

  • Once she was allowed to leave Iran, Farahani never returned.

  • Even as she continues to wow in thrillers like Extraction, she also continues to fight

  • for individuals' rights in Iran both on screen and off.
