Not just a pretty face

Stereotype of the beautiful but vacuous model who stumbled into acting flies out the window within a minute of talking to Moran Atias.

Before the Haitian earthquake, the most pressing issue on Moran Atias’s plate was which dress to wear for her next film audition or how to juggle her three-continent acting/modeling career as she burned frequent flyer points regularly crisscrossing from Hollywood to Milan to Tel Aviv.

All that changed a little over a year ago on January 12, 2010, when a 7.0 earthquake struck 25 km. west of Haiti’s capital, Port-au- Prince, killing more than a quarter of a million people and leaving more than a million homeless. Days later, the 29-year-old Haifa native joined actor Sean Penn and others in the film industry, through the Los Angeles organization Artists for Justice and Peace, on an 11-day volunteer mission to provide whatever help rescue professionals needed.
