Sasson Gabai Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

A Middle Eastern actor whose occasional excursions into Hollywood material relegated him to run-of-the-mill ethnic stereotypes in action pictures (such as the 1988 [[Feature~V40200~Rambo III~ramboiii]] and the 1997 [[Feature~V161921~Human Cargo~humancargo]]), Sasson Gabai fared far better with offbeat, sensitively handled projects in his native Israel. These included [[Performer~P82612~Haim Bouzaglo~haimbouzaglo]]'s war drama [[Feature~V211317~Time for Cherries~timeforcherries]] (1991), [[Performer~P206490~Shemi Zarhin~shemizarhin]]'s gentle, slice-of-life drama [[Feature~V381240~Aviva My Love~avivamylove]] (2006), and -- most memorably -- [[Performer~P517584~Eran Kolirin~erankolirin]]'s crossover arthouse comedy [[Feature~V399243~The Band's Visit~thebandsvisit]] (2007). The latter brought Gabai his first lead; in it, he played the conductor of an Egyptian police band who gets stuck in an Israeli town and winds up in the middle of a most unanticipated cross-cultural romance with a Hebrew woman. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
