The craggily handsome, soft-spoken Teomi is a thoughtful, intense and focused actor who reaches deep into the character he’s playing, thereby drawing in his audience.

Born and raised in Tel Aviv, Teomi decided to become an actor in honor of his actor father, Meir, who was killed by terrorists while performing in 1947.

The 2007 Avraham Ben-Yosef Prize for Teomi’s portrayal of Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman is among his many awards.
