Born in Iran Tehran, Saye Yabandeh is making her presence known in the United States. The Persian beauty Saye Yabandeh, best known for her brave appearance on ABC’s most thrilling reality series Wipeout, is working hard to be established as the World Film Favorite female. Saye not only has the good looks, she has the brain to keep her in the game. She is a hard-working, bilingual and sensational individual who utilizes her strengths to achieve her goals.
Saye’s determination and motivation comes from the hardship of her childhood. Through all the Iraq attack, Saye managed to come to the states to achieve Freedom of Speech and happiness. Soon enough she was discovered by Persian global TV and became a familiar face on commercials, talk shows and plays worldwide.
Being an up and coming actress, Saye has already built a strong background and skills that will benefit her in projects to come. Saye is a firm believer of always studying her craft, she has two years of training in the Meisner technique by Martin Barter and she studied with Scott Sedita in his comedy intensives.
Saye began her career hosting Persian Global Television, which was considered one of the biggest shows in the Persian community. Through the great opportunity, she was seen worldwide. Currently, she is touring throughout United States with the Persian comedy “What Women Want” which will soon be expanded worldwide.
In addition to her resume, Saye made several appearances in various films such as You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Single Black Female, The Halfway House and many more. She is currently filming Strawberries for the Homeless featuring Vida Guerra, which is set to release on October 7. 2008.
On her spare time, Saye enjoys giving back to the community. She has worked with a program called "Art heals", a charity for abused children. She is also a proud member of "Rotary club", as well as "NIFEM"(say no to violence against woman).
With all her work aside, Saye’s main focus is to become a role model for the women all around the world. She strongly believes that being a minority and growing up in limited environment does not limit what one can be in life. “It’s not easy to be a great actress, it’s even harder to be a great human being,” said Saye. With such great passion and positive attitude, Saye is determined to break all shells and reach for her dreams.
