Shtisel star Shira Haas has revealed she was moved to tears by the script for season three of the warm drama series about the daily gripes and joys of a strictly Orthodox family.
The series, in which she plays Ruchami Weiss, the lead character’s niece, will return to small screens with “an amazing season. Really powerful.”
“I cried a few times when I read the script and I’m not usually a crier,” she said.
Production, originally due to begin again in May, faced delays amid the coronavirus pandemic, but Haas’s photo of the script marked July 2020, renewed speculation about a possible return to filming this month.
Haas rose to international acclaim after being cast in the leading role on the film Unorthodox, which depicts a 19 year-old member of the Satmar Hasidic community’s journey to Berlin from her native Brooklyn.
