Imagine switching up your identity constantly, conning people into loving you, and running off with all of their money. Inbar Lavi gets to do just that when she steps into her character Maddie's shoes to live life on the edge in Imposters. But there's more to Inbar than meets the eye. Get the inside scoop on the actress below.
1. She's Originally from Israel
Inbar moved to the United States at 17 years old and has been here ever since. She still has roots in Israel, though. "I go back as often as I can. My whole family's still back home, so I miss them dearly," she said to The Daily Dish. "That's my home. I'm here, but my heart is there. I try to go back whenever my schedule allows."
2. Dance Was Her Focus Before Acting
Although her acting resume is pretty stacked, Inbar's original career ambitions involved dancing. "I actually grew up doing ballet and contemporary dance. Then I took one acting class and decided, I mean, I've always wanted to do it, and I was too scared to say it out loud," she said. "And so, I had one acting class, and I knew that that's what I was gonna do for the rest of my life and just packed my bags and moved to New York."
3. Action Shows Are Her Thing...
Before becoming a scammer or Imposters, she had roles in some action-packed shows, including TNT's The Last Ship and Sons of Anarchy. She's also been in MTV's Underemployed and is set to have a role in the upcoming reboot of Prison Break.
4. ...And She's Got Moves to Prove It
Don't mess with Inbar! Maybe she'll channel some of this badass energy in Imposters this season.
5. She's Tatted Up!
While you won't see it on the show — having a distinct tattoo would be pretty hard for a con artist trying to always change their identity — you can check out Inbar's sizeable ink above. She really is a girl full of surprises.
6. She's Humble and Super Positive
Inbar is incredibly talented but never forgets where she came from and how much she's grown with her success. We love seeing a star just as excited about their work as we are! #Blessed
