Meet Faran Tahir, a Pakistani American actor you may recognize from such blockbuster films as Iron Man and Star Trek.

Tahir is a third generation actor. He originally attended UC Berkeley with plans to get a business degree, but ended up creating his own major to pursue acting. He then received a graduate degree from Harvard.

Tahir has guest starred on many television shows, including 24, Lost, Chuck, and most recently, Greys Anatomy. It was his role as a Muslim character named Isaac on Greys Anatomy that caught MPACs attention.

Tahir and the writers of Greys Anatomy will be honored at the MPAC Media Awards on Saturday May 1 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

See our exclusive sit-down interview with Tahir as he shares his experiences, his advice, and the importance of Muslims getting involved in Hollywood.
