Iran world-class actor Peyman Maadi is awarded with the 2019 Stockholm Achievement Award for his performance in ‘6.5 Per Meter’.
Maadi was granted the Bronze Horse at the Nordic premiere and red-carpet screening of Saeed Roustaee’s latest drama.
It is the first time the Bronze Horse is awarded to an actor outside of Europe and USA.
As this year's recipient of Stockholm Achievement Award, Maadi is one of the biggest and most popular film stars in Iran. He got his big international break in Asghar Farhadi’s ‘A Separation’ (2011).
Maadi has also starred in several American films like ‘Camp X-ray’ (2014), alongside Kristen Stewart. The film was screened at Stockholm International Film Festival 2014.
