Dastjani, who built a successful career in Germany as a model and actress, is making major moves in the U.S. "Wanda's Place" will be her first American leading role, but she has already shot a part for one other American film and is slated to appear in two others that will be shooting in 2016.
In "Wanda's Place," she will be playing a wise-cracking employee of a community hangout. The film is expected to begin shooting by the late Spring or early summer.
Dastjani was also featured in a European music video last year and graced the cover of a major European magazine as well. 2016 is already looking like it will be a breakout year internationally for her as she becomes more known on both sides of the Atlantic.
