Shero Rauf (born 15 May 1979) is a Kurdish-Iraqi actor and stuntman. He is the first Kurdish Iraqi person to work as an actor, stuntman, 3D visual effects animator, lead artist, and assistant director in Hollywood movies.[1]



His first step in his career was in 2002 when he met Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal in which he later featured in his first movie role Epoch: Evolution (2003) with David Keith and Billy Dee Williams. In the same year he performed as a stunt actor for the movie Troy, as a Trojan archer facing Brad Pitt, in Mexico.

From 2004 he began to work as a digital effects artist (animation, particles, dynamic, modeling) for several movies. In May 2006 he became a visual effects lead artist for the biggest movie that had been done in WWFX company, The Gene Generation. In June 2006 he had the chance to work as a 3D digital artist on the movie 88 Minutes (2007) which stars his favorite actor, Al Pacino.

In August 2007 after a one month test period, he became an assistant director for the movie The Tournament (2008).

He had a contract with the company Double Negative to begin working as an animator, but he could not begin working because he could not get the work permit to work in the UK.
