Egyptian actor Madeline Taber is taking lessons to learn the Persian language. She also bought a number of Iranian films to understand the nature of Iranian culture.
According to the website Yallabina.com, Madeline is preparing for her role as a Muslim Iranian woman in a new international film that focuses on the relationship between the East and the West. Madeline wears a ‘Hijab’ (female Muslim head cover) and also covers her face in the film, yet she lives in the West. Her daughter is tragically raped in the film, but Madeline has declined to disclose any further details, including who will direct the film. In the film Madeline speaks Persian and English. Filming may take place in the United States.
