WHAT’S HOTT ABOUT MEITAL
Not since the invention of the original sin has Israel had such a hot export. Described as “Extremely Gorgeous…” by the New York Times and “breathtaking” by Variety Magazine. Meital (pronounced “Mey-tål”) was born Meital Dohan in Tel Aviv.
No stranger to the spotlight, Meital is an award-winning actress in theater, film, and television; including two Israeli Oscar nominations for her performances in God’s Sandbox and Giraffes and an Israeli Tony for Most Promising New Actress for her work with the renowned Cameri Theater. She was also principal star in the Israeli Emmy Award-Winning Ugliest Esti – the Israeli version of Ugly Betty. Among many other roles, Meital has authored a number of successful plays and the book “Love & Other Bad Habits”.
US audiences were first introduced to Meital as Yael Hoffman on Showtime’s Weeds and as Aurora in the Sony Pictures web comedy Woke Up Dead, co-starring Jon Heder and Wayne Knight. Meital also stars in the upcoming feature Foreclosure with Michael Imperioli and Wendell Pierce. Her most recent film, Monogamy (Oscilloscope), co-starring Chris Messina and Rashida Jones, won the Best Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival and received rave reviews.
On stage, Meital recently co-starred as Abby with John Ventimiglia (The Sopranos) in the Off-Broadway and LA productions of Anthony Neilson’s play Stitching, which is now being developed into a feature film directed by Bernard Rose (Candy Man).
In early 2011 the Israeli bombshell caught the attention of mega hip-hop producer Che Pope (Lauren Hill, Eminem, Dr. Dre) and they began to record her debut album “I’m In Hate With Love“. Meital’s first release “Yummy Boyz” has been described as a “sexy, sassy electro-pop romp” along with a music video that can best be described as… well, see for yourself.” The success of the single lead to an immediate followup remix and even more risqué video entitled “Yummy” (Rami Afuni, LMFAO) which has been featured on media outlets like MTV‘s Buzzworthy Blog, AOL, Maxim, Artist Direct, MTV, and MTVU. The video has continuously ranked in the top 10 most popular videos on MTV U since its debut. while the song was the most played single on Pride Radio, #1 Globally Trending Song on REVERBNATION, and ranked #3 on French Club Charts.
Venue’s quickly picked up the track and began booking Meital for performances. She has performed in clubs across the country from NY to LA to Vegas to Miami to San Francisco, as well as some of the largest music festivals around the country including: Winter Music Conference in Miami, Florida and The Dinah and White Party both in Palm Springs, CA. Promoters for The Dinah name her “one of five artists to watch this year.” Meital will soon be traveling overseas for performances in Paris and London.
Meital’s music directly reflects her attitude on the world by celebrating the return of fun, heartfelt music that does away with packaged pretenses and Barbie-doll stereotypes for a more genuine approach to her music, her acting and her everyday life.
