Inbar Lavi is an Israeli-American actress.
Lavi was born and raised in Ramat Gan, Israel, on October 27, 1986. She was raised in a Jewish family. While she was still a child, she suffered from asthma and had to use a nebulizer for 45 minutes at a time. This caused her to spend her time watching movies, and as a result, she decided to become an actress. For her education, Lavi studied ballet and modern dance at the Kiarat Sharet School of Arts, located in Holon. She then studied acting at the Sophie Moskowitz School of Acting, located in Tel Aviv. In 2004, when she was seventeen years old, Lavi moved to the U.S., first settling in New York City, New York. There, she performed in various off-Broadway productions.
After eight months, Lavi moved to Los Angeles, California, after being accepted with a full scholarship to the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. She graduated from there and started her acting career soon afterwards. One of Lavi's earliest English-speaking roles was as Cordelia in a 2006 theater production of King Lear. Starting in 2009, Lavi began landing guest-star appearances on a number of TV shows. These roles included Entourage, The Closer, Ghost Whisperer, Criminal Minds, CSI: Miami, and In Plain Sight. She has also appeared in feature films; her credits include roles in Tales of an Ancient Empire, Street Kings: Motor City, and House of Dust.
