Babak Tafti in childhood

  • The tale of Babak’s career is fascinating; everybody at the beginning thought that upon getting old, he would become a chef or a restauranter just like his parents.
  • But proving everybody wrong, he chose a completely different field and became an actor. His family supported him entirely in this decision and never nagged him about the decision he made.
  • He joined the school theatre and was a regular at it in the future. It took some time for him at the beginning to face his fear of the stage, but with persistence, he got the hang of it.
