Golshifteh Farahani plays in the series Invasion

Farahani is not new to action, having starred in the likes of Ridley Scott’s “Body of Lies” and the Chris Hemsworth vehicle “Extraction.” But she has built her global reputation on more auteur type fare, including films by the master Asghar Farhadi (“About Elly”) and Jim Jarmusch (“Paterson,” in which she played Adam Driver’s happily eccentric wife). “I just love her presence,” Jarmusch said by phone. “I love her mischievous eyes, her playfulness. She has a very positive spirit as a person.”
