Soraya was born in Algeria, but grew up in the South of France in a healthy mixture of Algerian, Spanish and French cultures (she speaks French, English and Spanish).
She started training as an actress in Montpellier, then went to the City Lit Institute in London before going back to France, this time training at Acting International School of Acting in Paris. She worked for French actor Patrick Timsit as a rehearsal study for his TV film 'Landru'. But an opportunity to move to L.A. came up and she took it!
In Los Angeles, Soraya occasionally worked as a Producer and Voice over Artist for E!News France, and made a quick appearance in "Little Fockers". In parallel to her pursuing a career in film, Soraya started developing her web series, "Oh La La, I Speak French!" and then "Oh La La, Hollywood Speaks French!", and is known to many as the "hot French teacher". She also wrote/produced/starred in a short film, a romantic comedy entitled "I'm not an Accent". The story humorously wrestles with the struggles of a French immigrant determined to show to those living in her new United States home that she is indeed more than an accent! Feature version to come...
Soraya has recently moved back to Paris and is focusing on her film career. Last year she got a part in Meta, a feature film directed by Joseph Cahill. And you'll see her soon in web series "Putain de Promesse" directed by Herve Faula, and in "Petits Secrets en Famille" directed by Philippe Roussel and that will presently air on French channel TF1.
