“For me, writing is an opportunity to repair and an uncontrollable need to create a world, perhaps the only world in which my heart can be truly open.”

She recently wrote and will star in her first feature film and is simultaneously developing a television show based on her life. She was nominated for the Israel Academy for Film and Television’s Prize for Supporting Actress for her role in the film “Casting a Doubt” (2017) and for her role in the feature film “Boutique Paris” (2020). She has acted in the series “Just for Today,” “Very Important Person 2,” “His Honor,” “Me and Viki” and more.
