Meysam Motazedi Film Actor & Director


Complex-ridden and moody but always sporting a sexy smouldering look whilst striving for prestige. To him, acting is a universal quest pursued with fervent single-mindedness: to be the best there is. This is accomplished, in part, by bad mouthing other actors and their work in conjunction with shameless self-promotion.


A megalomaniac of the highest order with the technical and creative skills to match such an ego. Everything I do must be an all-out salute to myself.


A firm believer in tearing down the walls of insecurity and fear by reducing people to nothing. This has been instrumental in helping him mask his own deep-seated insecurities and compensating for feelings of inadequacy while allowing his client/subject to relax.
