Mohammad Ali Fardin (1930 - 6 April 2000) was an Iranian wrestler and actor.
Fardin was a popular leading man in scores of movies and was given the title, King of Hearts after his lead role in an Iranian film of the same title. He was a former wrestler who came to fame in the 1960's. For the average Iranians, he represented a hero and served as an alternative to the foreign movie stars. He often played the poor tough guy with the heart of gold who got the girl at the end. His movies include, Gedayan-e Tehran, Ganj-e Gharoon, and Parvaz dar Asemanha. After the 1979 Iranian Revolution, he starred in only one more film, and his earlier films were eventually banned. Subsequently, he opened a bakery in Tehran.
