TM: You have been credited with acting since 2002, what were you doing before you started acting and what got you into the film business?
The film is set to release Summer 2007, Starring Tom Hanks & Julia Roberts.
AM:I actually started acting in 1989. I was doing a lot of smaller plays in Israel. Then I went to a Drama High School (Ironi Alef) in Tel Aviv. And when I finished the army in Israel I continued my Studies at "Yoram Levinstein Acting Studio". What brought me to the film industry is the fact that I want to make a statement and influence others in my craft and the only way to do that for a large audience is in the movies. I decided that besides theater, I would love to do film as well, so I came to Hollywood to study in the "American Academy of Dramatic Arts".
TM: You were born in Budapest, Hungary do you still reside there, if not where do you live now, how long?

Al Qaeda plot to unload a nuclear-bomb-sized crate at Hoover Dam.
