Politicians are often despised by many people, including their oppositions. For Shohreh Aghdashloo’s Christjen Avasarala, leading a government of Earth is a difficult balancing act against Mars’ and the Belter’s interests. So difficult, the fate of Earth rests upon those difficult decisions in the last season of Amazon’s The Expanse.

The cast also includes Wes Chatham, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cara Gee, Keon Alexander, Frankie Adams, and Nadine Nicole. Naren Shankar is the showrunner and executive producer with executive producers/co-writers Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck.

Here is the synopsis:

The sixth and final season of The Expanse picks up with the solar system at war, as Marco Inaros and his Free Navy continue to launch devastating asteroid attacks on Earth and Mars. As the tensions of war and shared loss threaten to pull the crew of the Rocinante apart, Chrisjen Avasarala makes a bold move and sends former Martian Marine Bobbie Draper on a secret mission that could turn the tide of the conflict. Meanwhile, in the Belt, Drummer and what’s left of her family are on the run after betraying Marco. And on a distant planet beyond the Rings, a new power begins to rise.

Shohreh Aghdashloo received national stardom in Iran in 1977 for starring in The Report from Abbas Kiarostami. She left Iran to complete the education that earned her a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations. In continuing her acting career, she performed a number of plays and had roles in films such as Twenty Bucks, Surviving Paradise, and Maryam. She garnered attention for her role as Dina Araz in the fourth season of FOX’s 24. Her stardom shot upwards after she was cast as Ben Kingsley’s wife, Nadi, in House of Sand and Fog. That role led her an Academy Award nomination for best-supporting actress and numerous other awards. Her most recent roles included Brenda on HBO’s The Flight Attendant, Bano Ayoub in The Cuban, and Farah Madani in The Punisher. Known for her voice, she also voiced Grayson in Netflix’s Arcane, Gozer in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and in video games with Mass Effect and Destiny.
