Mosko Alkalai (1931-2008) was a theatre, film, and television actor. Born in Romania, Alkalai studied his craft at the University of Bucharest’s Theatre Faculty. Following his move to Israel in 1962, he found work both at the Zavit Theatre and the Cameri Theatre. In 1975, Alkalai joined the Habima Theatre company, where he would remain until his retirement. His starring role in the late noughties football telenovela, The Champion, introduced Alkalai to a whole new, younger generation.
Highlights of his film credits include: The Big Dig (Ephraim Kishon, 1969), Salomonico (Alfred Steinhardt, 1972), Snooker (Boaz Davidson, 1975), Saint Cohen (Assi Dayan, 1975), 500,000 Black (Shaike Ophir, 1977), Seret V’Aruhat Boker (‘movie and breakfast’) (Alfred Steinhardt, 1977), The Fox in the Chicken Coop (Ephraim Kishon, 1978), Dead End Street (Yaky Yosha, 1982), Forced Testimony (Raphael Rebibo, 1984), Bar 51 (Amos Guttman, 1986), Meeting Venus (István Szabó, 1991), The Flying Camel (Rami Na’aman, 1994), No Names on the Doors (Nadav Levitan, 1997), and The Galilee Eskimos (Jonathan Paz, 2006). His role in Arik Kaplun’s Yana’s Friends (1999) won Alkalai an Ophir Award in the Best Supporting Actor category. In 2003, Alkalai was named the recipient of that year’s Lifetime Achievement Ophir Award.
Alkalai was married to talent agent, Rodica Alkalai.
