    She's in the comics, an Indian doctor I believe. Given the confusion when she was casted (she said she was going to be Cecilia Reyes), she may have a "made up" power along the lines of Cecilia Reyes. In the comic books, Rao is human.

    Nah, I think that was just Shohreh being misinformed. I think she will be human because she works with Worthington sr. and isn't he the one supplying the cure?

    I'm pretty sure Shohreh is playing a human character. And me thinks that she will have some dealings with Beast and his mutation.

    She is playing a human character that helps make the cure.

    Shohreh, I've only seen her act in her brief moments in Excorism of Emily Rose and I was even blown away there. She brought so much to such a minimal role.

    And whoa....she really looks alot like her comic counterpart.

    You saw her in Exorcism of Emily Rose, eh, Bill? I saw that movie two days ago and saw Shohreh as that spiritual person. I thought I'd see her before from somewhere else. Wow, she looked different there. That means she's a great actress. I can't wait to see her in this one. :up:

    God, I need to start watching 24. Will it be worth it if I buy the whole season 1 on DVD boxset?

    Yeah, I'm sure it will. She doesn't pop up until season 4 though if you were wondering.

    Wait till she gets her voice going, then she'll really own it.

    I love her in the trailer. She's in it for two seconds but that one look on her face is just amazing to me. I know that this woman is going to be incredible in this film.

    Yeah, I'll agree to that. That look of hers in the trailer struck a fear in me as soon as I saw her. She was so freakishly creepy, that Shohreh. :eek:

    Here's a few quotes from her stint on '24' I found on IMDb.

    Shohreh played Dina Araz.

    [Dina has just learned that Behrooz has been taken hostage by Navi]
    Dina Araz: If you cannot save my son, then I am happy to see the reactors melt down.
    Jack Bauer: [to Erin Driscoll, while on phone] Did you get that?


    Dina Araz: [Dina is moving Debbie's dead body while Behrooz watches in shock]
    Dina Araz: For God's sake, pull yourself together!
    Behrooz Araz: She didn't know anything. You didn't have to kill her.
    Dina Araz: Yes, I did. Because you didn't have the courage to kill her yourself.
    Behrooz Araz: Courage? To poison a girl who did no harm to you at all?
    Dina Araz: [Dina and Behrooz stop, as they hear a car door close. Dina checks the blinds] Your father's home!
    Behrooz Araz: [Behrooz watches as Dina grabs a pillow and the gun] What are you doing? She's already dead.
    Dina Araz: If your father doesn't see a bullet wound, he'll ask questions. Do you want him to know that you tried to help your girlfriend escape? Do you want him to know that you failed him again? Move away!
    [Dina fires the gun into the pillow, and leaves a bullet in Debbie, and offers Behrooz the gun]
    Dina Araz: Take it. Take it. Behrooz, take it. Take it! This has to stop, Behrooz. You are my son and I love you, but I cannot let you destroy everything. Everything we worked so hard to achieve.




    Evil much? :D
