Nataly Attiya was born in Tel Aviv in 1975. Her career started when she was just a schoolgirl as a modeling agent spotted her and signed her to a top agency. She worked under her fashion designer mother’s cautious eye during her school vacations. She had early success in her career; by the time she was 15 she was already participating in top model catwalks. She studied classical and modern ballet for ten years at Israel's Bat-Dor School of Ballet and majored in theatre at Thelma Yellin School of Arts. Attiya then moved to New York to pursue her modeling career and became an international face in the fashion world for as much as 5 years. But she found that she missed acting too much and returned to Israel to become a star. When she had children, she took seven years off from acting to raise them and switched to work in the advertising and finance fields. Since then, she has returned to her passion of acting.
