Hanna Maron - Leading Israeli Actress Hanna Maron Dies

Veteran actress Hanna Maron has died at the age of 90.

The theatre star passed away in Tel Aviv, Israel on Friday (30May14).

Born in Germany, Maron began her stage career at the age of four, before making her film debut in thriller M three years later, in 1931.

Her family fled the country in the 1930s to escape the Nazi regime and she subsequently joined the national theatre of Israel.

She later found work at Tel Aviv's Cameri Theatre and went on to become one of Israel's leading actresses.

Maron suffered a setback in 1970 after sustaining an injury to her left leg during the failed terrorist hijacking of the El Al plane en route to London, where she was due to audition for a West End production of Fiddler on the Roof.

Her leg had to be amputated, but she returned to the stage after a brief hiatus in productions of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, Carlo Goldoni's Servant of Two Masters and the musical Hello, Dolly. She also starred in popular 1980s sitcom Krovim, Krovim.

In 1973, Maron, who also became a peace activist, was presented with the Israel Prize, the nation's highest civilian honour.

She also made it into the Guinness World Records in 2011 as the actor with the longest career in theatre at 83 years.
