Actress

Born - 27 November 1964, Beersheba, Israel

Raven-haired, austerely beautiful Israeli actress, hardly known outside her native country, but a big star on home ground. Adept at playing women scarred by lifetime experiences, her cinema work included The Appointed (1990), Tzalaket (1995), Origine Controlee (2001), Late Marriage (2001), Alila (2003), Or (2004), The Band's Visit (2007), 7 Days (2008), The Girl on the Train (2009), Ashes and Blood (2009), The Flood (2010), Invisible (2011) and Gett: The Trial of Viviane Anselem (2014), her last, which was one of three films she also directed. She died from cancer, leaving behind a husband and three-year-old twins.
