Killer mom
Photo essay: Shohreh Aghdashloo's U.S. television debut

Shohreh Aghdashloo will win an Emmy nomination for her chilling performance as Dina Araz, a terrorist mother in the hit Fox series 24. She was that good. I'm glad I remembered to watch the first two episodes of the new season Sunday night. (Although I only watched it because of Aghdashloo. I can't get into these cop shows...)

Of course it would have been better if she was offered a different role. But I guarantee you Aghdashloo will not be remembered as that Catherine Zeta-Jones look alike who played that scary terrorist chick on 24. Her career has just begun.

These are some snapshots of her U.S. television debut taken from the livingroom TV.
