Svelte, raven-haired Israeli beauty Moran Atias graduated to film roles via a successful and lucrative career as a fashion model. Atias debuted on celluloid with a highly visible supporting role in Italian director Luciano Melchionna's 2005 thriller Gas, then subsequently teamed up with shockmeister Dario Argento for his supernatural horror film Mother of Tears (2007). In that film, Atias played the "mother" of the title, Mater Lacrimarum -- the last survivor of three millennia-old witches.
