Israeli sensation Meital is without a doubt one of the most exciting stars of the modern day. Not just working within the music industry, but venturing into acting where she’s already made a name for herself, we decided to catch up with her to find out a little bit more about her personal style, ambitions, and more…
Where do you draw influence and inspiration from when it comes to making music?
A lot of my favourite bands are British [and there are] some new great talents, from Paul Jai to Bob Moses. I find the British music to always be a great sense of inspiration.
You’ve worked with some big names in the past; who would you choose to collaborate with in the future?
I would love to work with Bob Marley’s hologram. Could We Be Loved? I think the answer is ‘yes’/
Do you have any definitive aims or goals for your music career?
My goal as an artist is to serve and give the audience new messages and inspirations and thought streams. Also if they get to shake their ass while doing it, why not?
Over in acting you star in new film Cabaret Maxime – what can you tell us about that?
The film was a phenomenal experience, working with my dear friends Bruno De Almeida, Michael Imperioli, and Johnny Ventimiglia. There’s nothing like working with your friends. The role is based on my character in life!
I had the pleasure of working with Michael before in the film Foreclosure. He is a lovely person and phenomenal actor so it’s a great honour.
Why should people go and watch this movie?
Because it should remind them of how movies used to be about the human condition and not all about spaceships.
Are there any TV shows/movie franchises you’d love to be a part of in the future?
I would like to play ET in the 2020 remake but I have my own show about aliens so please be patient!
Tell us a little bit about your work as a brand ambassador for Nelson Mandela’s charity for global quality and peace.
Nelson Mandela was a freedom fighter and one of our heroes who made an important change in society. I embrace the opportunity and stand behind the principals he preached. We’re working on a very exciting festival in Lisbon, Portugal – here’s a link to buy tickets: https://nelsonmandelatribute.com
What advice do you have for others hoping to make it in the entertainment industry?
Follow your heart, listen to your gut, and do what the F you want!
Finally, what’s next for you in the coming months?
