Ayelet Zurer

Ayelet Zurer, a celebrated Israeli actress best known for her roles in "Man of Steel" and "Daredevil," is also a talented illustrator. Growing up, Zurer tells From The Grapevine that she would paint with her father and at one point even considered a career as an artist.

During a span between acting gigs in Israel, she was offered by author and friend Gabi Nizanan an opportunity to illustrate a fantasy book called "Badulina."

"I used to visit him and his wife, and instead of talking or playing cards or whatnot, we would just invent a game, like a board game, we would invent something and I would illustrate it," Zurer told us. "So when he came to think about 'Badulina' as a name for that book, he thought about me. I didn't even realize how serious it was. I was just like, 'Yeah, sure.'"
