‘Homeland’ season 4 will have Nazanin Boniadi as a regular, she ‘raised her game’

After guest starring during season 3 of HomelandNazanin Boniadi will be upgraded to a regular for the fourth season of the Award winning Showtime drama.

Deadline details her role in the coverage: “Boniadi plays Fara Sherazi, the strong-willed Muslim CIA analyst who Saul (Mandy Patinkin) recruited for her expertise in international banking. Like Carrie (Claire Danes), Fara shares a passion for justice and ends up enlisting her relatives in Tehran to help Carrie’s secret mission in the final episodes of Season 3.”

Fara will obviously have a key role in season 4.

Showrunner Alex Gansa spoke with The Hollywood Reporter in December. “These are characters we got to explore and enrich and see whether or not the show can withstand Brody’s absence,” said Gansa, referring to Boniadi and fellow guest Tracy Letts. “I think they raised their game and made the show vital without that central character onstage.”

Boniadi currently has a role on ABC’s Scandal, reportedly for eight episodes. Her other TV credits also include How I Met Your Mother, Grey’s Anatomy and 24. She also appeared in The Next Three Days and Iron Man.
