Alona Tal

The young singer and actress debuted in the Israeli film scene in 2003. She brought her name to the American television game by playing roles in shows like Veronica Mars and Supernatural. She is still young and has a long career of acting ahead of her.

Lior Ashkenazi

Although he's considered to be one of the top Israeli actors for some time now, it is only lately that Ashkenazi is making it abroad. We say it's about time! The 47 year old actor who played all major roles in Israeli cinema, was nominated and won many film and Tv awards, will soon make his appearance in Yosef Sider's new feature film Norman, playing an Israeli politician alongside Richard Geer. Ashkenazi also was recently cast to play the role of Yitzhak Rabin in a new American film based on the story of Entebbe, and will also play the role of an Israeli journalist in the new Romanian film The Wanderers by director Dragos Buliga. We can't wait.
