Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumnus Behzad Dabu ’08, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s Acting Program, is featured in the new U.S. edition of A Book Of, a quarterly collectible printed art book and online magazine. The feature on Dabu, published March 2, 2017, features high-quality photos by Irvin Rivera.
Dabu, a featured cast member of the hit NBC TV series How to Get Away with Murder, describes himself as “a trained actor who cares about changing the way people live, for the better, through the craft. I have a passion for social justice, serving my communities, and being the best brother, son, friend, partner, and citizen I can be.”
Adds Dabu: “Acting is a service profession. We are in service to the writer, to the audience and to our fellow actors. Remember that our job is not to pretend, or to lie, but rather to tell the truth via imaginary circumstances. Let us live out stories and scenarios so that our audience doesn’t have to. Work hard, be supportive, see other artists’ work, be persistent, and be open-minded. Thrive.”
