Nerd Girl of Note #91

Prior to seeing Dario Argento's Mother of Tears I had never heard of Moran Atias, but she has a fair number of credits to fit her in this category. She played the main witch in Mother of Tears, Mater Lachrymarum, but was also in the Will Ferrell remake of Land of the Lost, and appears in the recent The Next Three Days.

Atias is an Israeli, and began her acting career at fifteen on television. She later became a model and spokesperson, notably (to me at least) she was the city of Milan's official spokesperson against animal cruelty (and graffiti, for some reason). She was also the host of the Israeli version of Deal or No Deal. She is the creator and host of the Italian radio show "Shaker" on RTL 102.5. Atias appears in Bill Eagles' film Disturbed, which has not yet had wide release.
