About Bar Paly:
Bar Paly is a Russian-born Israeli model and actress.
The actresses I most admire are Cameron Diaz and Sofia Vergara. They're amazing comedic actresses and also gorgeous. That's the direction I'd like my career to go in.
My parents have always given me whatever I wanted. Took me to the ballet, the opera, museum exhibitions. I was always surrounded by art. It's their fault I've become an actress.
I was fortunate enough to model, but it was always work for me. It was a way to support myself and finance acting classes.
I just like doing comedies, and think that my timing and love for the genre set me apart from other young women who look like me.
I really, really enjoy comedy. I think that's one of my strong suits. It's my zone. And people don't expect it from me, which is a whammy.
I think the attraction to Israeli women stems from the fact that we're exotic and the fact that there are many talented and beautiful women in Israel. I think that there is also greater awareness of Israel than before in the movie industry.
