Not since the invention of the original sin has Israel had such a hot export. Described as “Extremely Gorgeous…” by the New York Times and “breathtaking” by Variety Magazine. Meital (pronounced “Mey-tål”) was born Meital Dohan in Tel Aviv.
No stranger to the spotlight, Meital is a two-time Israeli Oscar nominee for her performances in God’s Sandbox and Giraffes. She also won an Israeli Tony for Most Promising New Actress for her work with the renowned Cameri Theater and was principal star in the Israeli Emmy Award-Winning Ugliest Esti – the Israeli version of Ugly Betty. Among many other roles, Meital has authored a number of successful plays and the book “Love & Other Bad Habits”.
US audiences were first introduced to her as Yael Hoffman on Showtime’s Weeds and as Aurora in the Sony Pictures web comedy Woke Up Dead, co-starring Jon Heder and Wayne Knight. Meital also stars in the upcoming feature Foreclosure with Michael Imperioli and Wendell Pierce. Her most recent film, Monogamy (Oscilloscope), co-starring Chris Messina and Rashida Jones, won the Best Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival and received rave reviews.
On stage, Meital recently co-starred as Abby with John Ventimiglia (The Sopranos) in the Off-Broadway and LA productions of Anthony Neilson’s play Stitching, which is now being developed into a feature film directed by Bernard Rose (Candy Man).
In early 2011 the Israeli bombshell caught the attention of mega hip-hop producer Che Pope (Lauren Hill, Eminem, Dr. Dre) and they began to record her debut album “I’m In Hate With Love”. Including such tracks as “Get to the Point” and “Nobody’s Got Time for Love”. Meital’s first release is the single “Yummy Boyz”. The track has been described as a “sexy, sassy electro-pop romp” along with the recently completed video that can best be described as… well, see for yourself.”
Meital’s music directly reflects her attitude on the world by celebrating the return of fun, heartfelt music that does away with packaged pretenses and Barbie-doll stereotypes for a more genuine approach to her music, her acting and her everyday life.
