I was fortunate enough to model, but it was always work for me. It was a way to support myself and finance acting classes.
I just like doing comedies, and think that my timing and love for the genre set me apart from other young women who look like me.
I think the attraction to Israeli women stems from the fact that we're exotic and the fact that there are many talented and beautiful women in Israel. I think that there is also greater awareness of Israel than before in the movie industry.
The actresses I most admire are Cameron Diaz and Sofia Vergara. They're amazing comedic actresses and also gorgeous. That's the direction I'd like my career to go in.
I really, really enjoy comedy. I think that's one of my strong suits. It's my zone. And people don't expect it from me, which is a whammy.
My parents have always given me whatever I wanted. Took me to the ballet, the opera, museum exhibitions. I was always surrounded by art. It's their fault I've become an actress.
