Glenn Klose learned Farsi for the “Tehran” thriller
The American actress gave everything for a spy series. She even learned a language that was completely foreign to her.
Glenn Klose (“Hillbilly Elegy”, “A Fat Affair”, “Dangerous Contacts”) has been nominated for eight Oscars. In her long career, the American actress has never missed a genre.
At age 75, the star is now breaking new ground – for the first time Klose plays an agent. He appears on the second season of the Israeli spy series “Tehran” that began this Friday on the Apple TV + streaming service.
Proper emphasis is important
The most difficult thing for Klose is to learn a new language. “Learning Forsyth and speaking it well in front of the camera was the biggest challenge for me to attract native speakers,” Close told the German Press Agency. For two months he worked actively with language teachers. “You have to find the right intuition and speak fast enough that it sounds fluent,” says the Hollywood star.
Klose, who wears a headscarf, lives as a Muslim in Tehran and plays a British psychiatrist working for the Israeli secret service Mossad. She stands with Tamar Rabinian (New Sultan), a young agent on a secret mission in Tehran.
The shooting schedule was very tiring, Close agrees. She arrived in Athens for filming at the end of a severe heat wave. “You shoot at very different temperatures, at different times of the day. You have to be careful not to suffocate,” he said.
