His sister, Hangameh Mofid, was a poet and lyricist. He began his involvement in theater at a young age, participating in his family's theatrical productions.

Behman Mofid officially embarked on his cinematic journey in 1969 with a brief role in the film "Qeysar" directed by Masoud Kimiai.

Despite receiving offers for professional engagements outside of Iran, Mofid chose to return to his homeland in 2000 after an absence of over two decades. He continued his artistic activities, playing roles in popular films such as "Freidoune Farokhzad," "Monafeq," and "Ghods."

Behman Mofid's career spanned various domains, including theater, film, and puppetry. His contributions to Iranian culture and art, both in Iran and abroad, made him a beloved and enduring figure in the world of performing arts.
