Fans, colleagues and friends gathered for a ceremony on Tuesday at the Iranian Artists Forum to honor actor Jamshid Mashayekhi. Mashayekhi began professional acting on stage in 1957. His first feature film role was Brick and Mirror (1965, Ebrahim Golestan). He then acted in The Cow (1969, Dariush Mehrjui) and Kaiser (Qeysar) (1969, Masoud Kimiai). Mashayekhi commonly appears as an elderly grandfather because of his white hair and charismatic face and figure. He received a best performance award for The Grandfather (1985, Majid Gharizadeh) from the First Festival of Non-aligned Countries in North Korea.
