Bio

 

Salme moved to Australia from Iran with her family when she was 4 years old. Growing up on the Central Coast gave rise to her love of the beach and other outdoor activities.

After highschool she went on to study Biotechnology at the University of Newcastle. However, realising that she didn’t have the passion (or the lab skills) to be a scientist, she began taking her first acting classes which took her to New York where she studied at the New York Film Academy.

On returning to Sydney, she completed the 3-year full time actor’s course at the Australian Academy of Dramatic Art.

Salme continued her training with the Australian Film & Television Academy, and 16th Street Actors Studio in Melbourne. After moving to LA, she studied Improv at Upright Citizens Brigade, and currently trains at Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshops.

Salme has worked on major Australian shows such as ‘Winners & Losers‘ and ‘Rush‘, and most recently will appear in the US comedy feature ‘Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town‘ opposite Mackenzie Davis, which premieres at the LA Film Festival in June. Her performance in the comedy short film ‘The Short Short‘ won her Best Supporting Actress at the Toscars 2016, and the film has since been garnering recognition in film festivals; it was recently screened at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival, The Hollywood Comedy Shorts Film Festival, and in June it will be screened at the Laugh or Die Comedy Fest. Salme also plays Baroness Ipswich in the comedy web series ‘Mrs Carmody and Mrs Jellineck‘, which won Best Comedy Series and Best Web Series at the Accolade Global Film Competition 2016. Salme speaks both Farsi and Spanish.

In her spare time she loves to paint, play the piano, and hike. She currently trains in Muay Thai.
