Biography:
Born Aahoo Jahansouzshahi to Spanish and Persian parents - her lineage on the latter side could be traced to a 19th-century shah - in
Euless, TX on Jan. 10, 1980, Shahi was an overachiever at an early age, participating in sports and beauty pageants, training as an
opera singer, and earning a brown belt in karate. In addition to her outside interests, she excelled at school, going on to graduate at
the top of her class from Southern Methodist University. After winning the Miss Fort Worth competition in 1997, she tired of the
pageant routine and considered becoming a country singer, of all things. While exploring that venue, Shahi joined up with the iconic
Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders from 1999-2000, ending up as the first rookie to ever grace the cover of their calendar. During this time,
she also appeared in layouts for Muscle and Fitness and Curve magazines, and toured the Balkans and Southern Europe as part of the
U.S.O.

While working as an extra on "Dr. T. and the Women" (2000), Shahi met director Robert Altman, who encouraged her to pursue acting. She
relocated to Los Angeles and began working almost immediately in television and film. Shahi graduated quickly from bit parts, to
recurring roles on series like "Alias" (ABC, 2001-06) and "Dawson's Creek" (The WB, 1999-2003). A turn in the 2003 theatrical comedy
"Old School" also earned her numerous male fans, after she gave an impressive pantomime of oral sex. In 2005, Shahi joined the cast of
"The L Word" as Carmen de la Pica Morales, a budding D.J. who plays roommates Shane McCutcheon (Katherine Moennig) and Jenny (Mia Kershner) off each other in an attempt to win Shane's affections. Eventually, she becomes involved with Shane, but the relationship
ends up tumultuous, with much of the conflict over issues of fidelity. Their romance climaxes with Shane abandoning Carmen on the day
of their wedding. Carmen's fiery temper and the intense psycho-sexual drama of her relationship with Shane helped make the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons among the series' most dramatic and watchable. Interestingly enough, Shahi was unsure if she wanted the role after she landed it, but soon came to consider it among her best work.
