Inbar Lavi is in full promotion mode for the star-studded “The Last Witch Hunter,” as well as TNT’s beloved “The Last Ship” and ABC’s “Castle,” so it is only fitting she has had an influx of role proposals. Inbar has just been cast as the lead in BRAVO’s highly anticipated show, “My So Called Wife,” which promises to be a series full of love, lust, deceit, betrayal, and affluence. Playing a Machiavellian con-artist and master of disguise, Inbar’s character manipulates men and women into falling in love with her, marries them and then disappears with their money. The bar has been set high for this debut series.

BELLO Mag: You’ve had a really busy year with “The Last Ship,” “Castle” and “The Last Witch Hunter”! Which project took up most of your time?
Inbar Lavi: The last ship was a beautiful arc. It took us about 8 months to shoot.

BM: Vin Diesel is such a household name, what was it like to work alongside him on “The Last Witch Hunter”?
IL: It was amazing. He was nothing but kind to me, happy to answer any question I had. He was very open and welcoming.

BM: He just appeared on The Jonathan Ross show in London to promote the film. Are you a fan of that aspect of the job? Going to premieres, red carpets, etc.?
IL: I love getting dolled up and sharing the experience of creating the magic with people who are just as excited to see it as I am to be a part of it. That’s the best part – sharing it. The audience is the one we do it all for!

BM: Then of course there was the legendary Michael Cane in this movie. Tell me about your experience meeting him.
IL: It was legendary! He has such an ease about him. Very poised, grounded, inspiring.

BM: Who would you say your acting idol is?
IL: I have many but a big one was Robin Williams. He will forever be up there at the top.

BM: What is the most extreme change you have had to make to land a role?
IL: Changing my look is such a great tool for each of the characters I get to play. I love stretching the envelope and experimenting all the time. I played a Russian cop for a year and dyed my hair blond for the role. Let’s just say my hair was happy that gig ended! I played a schizophrenic patient who suffered from insomnia and eating disorders. I had to eat yogurt and veggies for an entire summer of filming. I was so hungry it literally kept me up at night – which worked for the insomnia look but made the shoot very challenging physically and mentally. I was a wreck!

BM: You are so busy at the moment. Are you going to have some time off this Christmas?
IL: To have time off, you must make time off. If I need the break, I will take it. As of now I am enjoying the crazy ride. I will definitely be going home to Israel for a visit when things simmer down.
BM: What upcoming projects are you working on that you want to share with your fans?

I’m working on an incredible new show for BRAVO called “My So Called Wife” and it has me doing things I have never done before. I am beyond thrilled and cannot wait to share it with you all, so stay tuned!

Stephane Marquet
Creative Director

First of all, excuse my French! … I was born in the South of France. Lived in Paris for 10 years and travelled the world until I moved to Los Angeles in 2008, because obviously recession was a great time to move to a new country! I also arrived around Halloween and was greeted at the Social Security offices by a nurse who directed to the window Number 6 so a witch could hand me my social security number. Welcome to America. I am a painter, a photographer and the creative director of BELLO mag.
