Coming off of Yasmina’s Necklace (16th Street Theatre), he is thrilled to be working on another complex and touching story. Salar is also an actor-combatant recognized by the Society of American Fight Directors and has had the privilege of training with some of the best teachers there are. Some of his indie-film credits include: Lazy (FoulMouth Films), Hayati (Les Tres Haut Productions), and The Ants Go Marching (Globe Valley Pictures). When not in rehearsal or on set you can find him wandering on the streets taking photos or nonchalantly going from one movie-theater to another catching movies all-day-long. Check out some of his photos on instagram @lepetitsalar. He is represented by Shirley Hamilton Talent Agency.
"Ardebili’s Kahdim bristles with adolescent bravado . . . and its accompanying angst. If he’s hiding things, he has his reasons." - Stage & Cinema

“Frankel plays the earnest but possibly xenophobic vice principal with disarming affability. He’s breezy,chatty and very dangerous, good cop and bad cop rolled into one nasty questioner.” - Stage & Cinema
