Vida Ghaffari Bio:
Vida Ghaffari has been active on the Tinsel town scene as an actress and a reporter. This comedic powerhouse just landed a co-starring role in Mindy Kaling’s (“The Office”) hilarious and much buzzed about Untitled pilot on the FOX network.

Vida also booked a supporting role in Savage Cinema’s campy horror flick,”Pond Scum,” directed by legendary indie Aussie filmmaker Mark Savage. Ghaffari plays the role of a pious woman betrayed by her abusive husband. Savage was so struck by her acting talent, that he will also cast her in a major supporting role in his upcoming thriller called “Circus of Dread,” starring acting powerhouses Domiziano Arcangeli and Bill Oberst Jr.

This versatile performer has also worked alongside a couple of well known child stars. She shot a supporting role in an indie film called “The Bilderberg Club” with Allison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson) of “Little House on the Prairie” as well as acting with Jeremy Miller (Ben Seaver) of “Growing Pains” in a TV pilot. She has also played an Iraqi wife in an episode of Comedy Central’s “Mind of Mencia” and has also shined in a fun character role in the indie film “Shirin in Love” alongside internationally known comics Maz Jobrani and George Wallace.

Vida also made her web series debut in “Green Manor,” where she acted along side Tony Moran, the original Mike Myers from “Halloween.” She has also acted in many plays at established Hollywood venues such as the Zephyr Theatre and Theatre/Theater. She also has a very strong background in comedy as an improviser, stand-up, and sketch comic. She has performed stand-up at the Improv and the Comedy Store. She has performed in improv and sketch shows at prestigious theatres such as Improv Olympic West, The Second City Los Angeles, and Upright Citizens Brigade Los Angeles (UCB). She has also studied longform improv at UCB.

With her rich, smart, and sassy signature voice, Vida works steadily as a voiceover artist and is the voice of Singular Magazine. She has also done voiceover work for Fidelity Investments and other companies. She also voiced two characters in an animated film called “Lovesick Fool” created by Emmy-nominated director Dominic Polcino (The Simpsons, Family Guy, and King of the Hill). Acclaimed actors like Fred Willard, Lisa Kudrow, and Janeane Garofalo also voiced roles in this film.

This multi-talented performer also works as an entertainment correspondent for GEM TV. She reports from many Hollywood red carpet film premieres and galas interviewing a wide range of celebrities such as Oscar winners Cuba Gooding Jr. and Melissa Leo, Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Shohreh Aghdashloo, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Miley Cyrus to internationally known musicians such as Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and Chris Isaak . She has worked for various media outlets such as the popular online media station MaximoTV.com as well as being an on-air host and an associate producer for ATV’s (Andisheh) “Cinema Now” and “City of Angels” shows.

Born and raised in the DC area, she comes from a long line of diplomats, scholars, actors/directors, writers, and poets. Ghaffari wants to uphold the family tradition through the arts and the media. As a print journalist, she has written for the Iran Times International, the Persian Mirror, and Namak Magazine as well as many local papers in the DC metropolitan area. She has received research and writing grants from the Woodrow Wilson Center and the National Journalism Center among others. She has a BA in Economics from the University of Maryland, College Park with a minor in Journalism and Theatre. While she was studying at the U of M, she wrote for the Diamondback newspaper that had a student readership of over 40,000, as well as hosting her own show on WMUC, the campus radio station. She has also worked for WUSA, the CBS affiliate in Washington DC.
