Haya Harareet

Haya Harareet (sometimes credited as Haya Hararit), (born 20 September 1931) in Haifa is an Israeli actress.


Harareet began her career in Israeli films with Hill 24 Doesn't Answer (1955), but is best-known for her role as Esther in Ben Hur (1959) opposite Charlton Heston. She also starred in Edgar G. Ulmer's Journey Beneath The Desert (1961) with Jean-Louis Trintignant. Her career, however, was short-lived and, after a few films, ended in 1964. She co-wrote the screenplay for Our Mother's House (1967) from the novel of the same name by Julian Gloag. The film starred Dirk Bogarde.

She was married to the British film director Jack Clayton until his death in 1995. Of the main characters from the movie Ben Hur, she is the only one that remains alive.
