Necar Zadegan

Necar began working in the theater at age 16 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and has since stayed close to the theater while splitting her time between film and television. In 2011, she played a lead role in the FilmMcQueen production of "Meth Head." She followed that with a role on the NBC series The Event as resident villainess Isabelle. The year also saw her making her Broadway debut in the Tony Award winning and Pulitzer Prize nominated play " The Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo," opposite Robin Williams.Prior to that Necar scored with fans as Dalia Hassan on the mega-hit Fox TV series, '24' for Season 8. Her star level turn in the series earned her a slew of admirers, and garnered her reviews that all agree: "Breakout star of the season," "Absolutely amazing," "Necar Zadegan makes the scene here, with her boiling hatred for Suberov contained, but visible," "special mention should go to the quality of acting overall, in particular Cherry Jones, Necar Zadegan and Mary Lynn Rajskub, who all produced some emotional and heavy scenes."In the psychological thriller "Unthinkable," Necar stars alongside Samuel L Jackson and Michael Sheen, as Jehan Younger. She also recently wrapped the FilmMcQueen production, "Elena Undone" where she plays the title role of 'Elena Winters." Her television credits include "Harry's Law,""A Gifted Man","CSI: Miami," "The Shield," "Nip/Tuck," "The Unit," "NCIS," "How I Met Your Mother," "Lost" among others.
