Mohammad Reza Golzar (Persian: محمد رضا گلزار‎, born March 21, 1977), is an Iranian actor, singer and model.[1]

Early life[edit]

He was born on 21 March 1977 in a family with Persian-Azeri origin.[2] He studied Mechanical Engineering in Islamic Azad University.


Before starting his acting career with Sam and Narges, in 1998 he gained fame as the guitarist of the Iranian music band, Arian band. He is now a singer of the Rezzar Band led by Hamed Baradaran.[3]

In 2000, he was invited to act in Sam and Narges by Iranian director, Iraj Ghaderi. He started to gain popularity after acting in more films such as Shaam-e Akhar, Zahr-e Asal, and Boutique.

Golzar gained media attention when it was revealed that he was paid £55,000 for 3 days work while shooting Democracy in Bright Daylight in 2009, a relatively high fee given the per capita income of Iran.[4]
