Bio

Yael Grobglas is a French-born Israeli actress best known for her recurring role as Olivia D'Amencourt, an Italian noblewoman who is an old flame of Prince Francis and whose reappearance at court under extreme circumstances threatens Francis' new relationship with Mary, in the historical fiction period drama television series Reign.

Yael was born in Paris, France to Jean Pierre and Eva Grobglas. Her family moved to Israel, where her talent and passion for performing arts became visible at an early age.

As a teenager, Yael studied different styles of dance and performed in a professional dance group. She had a brief modeling career and participated in a number of runway shows and advertising campaigns. Having realised that her true passion is acting, Yael started taking acting classes.

After participating in a few small projects, Yael was cast for the sci-fi TV series Ha'Yi (the Island) for all three seasons, which made her popular among Israel's young audiences.

She then enrolled and completed a three-year acting program at the Yoram Loewenstein Performing Arts Studio, while filming an additional season of Ha'Yi and a number of major commercials.

She has worked with some of Israel's top actors and directors in her roles in the first Israeli horror film Kalevet, the sitcom Ha-Shualim (the Foxes) the mini-series Yehefim and primetime TV show Tanuchi, as well as plenty of supporting roles and guest appearances.

Yael's theatre performances include her role as Linda in the critically acclaimed Beer Sheva Theater production of Woody Allen's Play it Again, Sam.

In 2013, Yael starred as America Singer in the CW's The Selection pilot, described as a cross between The Bachelor and The Hunger Games, which was ultimately not picked up to series.

Other roles include the lead in the Israeli film Glasses, and the recurring role of Olivia in the CW's series Reign.
