Gina Wilhelm Actress – Israeli Actress is Fair Game
Liraz Charhi is a young Israeli actress who just got her first American acting role.
So far she’s mostly been seen in Israeli television shows and a hit movie in Israel. However, she just got cast in the American film “Fair Game.”
The movie is the story of CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose identity was revealed by a member of the Bush administration.
Charhi will play Sawsan, an Iraqi doctor living in Cleveland asked by Plame to go undercover in Baghdad.
Filming has been going on for some time in New York, but has just moved to the Middle East.
It’s unknown where her scenes will be filmed, but it’s a good bet that they won’t actually be in Baghdad.
The movie stars Naomi Watts and Sean Penn (as Sen. Joe Wilson[!]). Not bad for just her fifth major role!
