IRANIAN ACTRESS IN THE WORLD 
Born in Tehran, Iran, Malek-Yonan is a descendant of one of the oldest and most prominent Assyrian families, tracing her Assyrian roots back nearly 11 centuries. The Malek family or tribe came from the Assyrian village of Geogtapah, Urmi (also known as Urmia), a region in northwestern Iran. Geogtapa was the largest Assyrian Christian villagein the region and much of it belonged to the Malek-Yonan family with the oldest plot in the family graveyard dating back to 1,100 ADMalek-Yonan's father, George Malek-Yonan (born 1924), an international attorney in Iran, was personally responsible for negotiating and procuring a seat for the Assyrians as a recognized Christian minority in the Iranian Parliament, a huge accomplishment for a people who had been without a formal country since the fall of the Assyrian Empire.

Malek-Yonan's mother, Lida Malek-Yonan(1928–2002) regarded as an activist and humanitarian, was equally influential in demanding recognition for Assyrian women in Iran by launching and presiding over the Assyrian Women's Organization which was the only officially 


recognized charter member of the Iranian 

Women's Association up until the end of the Pahlavi Dynast
During the Assyrian Genocide of 1914–1918, Malek-Yonan's grandparents left their ancestral homeland in Urmi, Iran, during the Great Exodus from Urmi. The Malek-Yonan family fled to Mesopotamiawhere her father was born in Baghdad, while Malek-Yonan's maternal grandmother fled to Russia where her mother was born in Rostov. Years later, both families returned to Tehran where her parents met and were married. Malek-Yonan has a younger sister, Monica, who works very closely with her on most of her projects.Malek-Yonan is trilingualand speaks Assyrian, Persian and English fluently
