Ramin Sohrab, a new insightful director and actor, is renowned for his exceptional skills in martial arts and stunts. Born in Tehran in 1985, Ramin began his training at the age of four under the guidance of his father, Alireza Sohrabzadeh, a master of Shaolin Wushu who introduced the discipline to Iran and trained thousands of students.
Ramin Sohrab and his family moved to Finland in 1990, where he spent his formative years. Ramin’s passion for performance led him to participate in numerous movies and TV shows, as well as showcase his talent in performances around the world. Seeking to further develop his skills, Ramin moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and enrolled at the prestigious Stella Adler Academy of Acting and Theater, a distinguished institution where iconic actors such as Marlon Brando, Robert DeNiro, Benicio Del Toro, and Mark Ruffalo had previously studied. After honing his craft, Ramin graduated from the academy in 2011, marking the beginning of his career.
Following his graduation, Ramin devoted himself to building his career as a director and actor in the motion picture industry. He successfully led the development and production of the first-ever Finnish-Iranian action film, which was filmed in Tehran and starred a strong western female lead. Adding to this milestone, the film was produced by a female producer, making it a groundbreaking achievement for Ramin and the Persian film industry as a whole.
Layers of Lies’ has been making waves in the festival circuit, having garnered an impressive 13 awards so far, including accolades for best directing, best feature film, and best cinematography. His achievements have also caught the attention of the Golden Globes, and he will soon be featured in an article about his unbelievable journey of making the first Finnish-Iranian action film.
Ramin’s artistic abilities, combined with his martial arts expertise and his passion for storytelling, have won him numerous awards for his films. He continues to break new ground and push boundaries, as he seeks to bring unique stories to life on the big screen.
