One of Israel's most respected actresses, Ayelet Zurer made her international film debut in "Munich", a historical drama about the Mossad's secret retaliation against the terrorist group that murdered Israeli athletes during the 1972 Summer Olympics. Zurer made her feature film debut alongside Sophie Marceau in the 1991 French motion picture "For Sasha". Most of her work came through Israeli television for the remainder of the decade, including an award-winning turn as Noga Caspi in the 1992 high school drama "Inyan Shel Zman" and then playing Shira Shteinberg in a multi-episode appearance of the 1997 weekly drama "Florentine". More accolades came Zurer's way-she won an Israeli Academy Award for portraying the widowed title character of the 2003 dramedy "Nina's Tragedies", and a rendering of patient Na'ama Lerner in the smash 2005 weekly series "Betipul (In Therapy)" netted her a Best Actress Award from the Israeli Television Academy. ("Betipul" was remade as the award-winning HBO series "In Treatment".) Hollywood soon took notice and Zurer made her American film debut as Eric Bana's wife Daphna in 2005's "Munich". She quickly followed by playing Michaela in the 2007 Canadian coming-of-age film "Fugitive Pieces" and Gina Grey, a nurse who falls in love with Jeff Goldblum's Holocaust survivor in Paul Schrader's "Adam Resurrected" the following year. One of Zurer's biggest international film roles was as Vittoria Vetra, the female lead opposite Tom Hanks in the 2009 adaptation of author Dan Brown's "Angels & Demons".
