Violeta Hais is a British-Romanian actress of mixed European and West Asian (Turkish) ethnicity, who grew up in Bucharest before moving to the UK for her studies. Throughout her childhood, she recited poems on national Romanian TV and did catwalk modelling as a teen. After a successful career as an Architect and Lecturer, she returned to her first passion for performance, embarking on an MA at RADA (the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts). She then staged and appeared in multiple London and UK performances of two plays she developed during her time at RADA, culminating in 2021 in a fully-fledged production, thanks to an Arts Council of England grant.
More recently, Violeta’s interest and focus have been on screen acting, which, as well as earning her key parts in 3 short films, one of which in Romanian, led to roles in an ITV and a BBC TV series and guest-starring in CBS’s FBI: INTERNATIONAL – all three coming to the UK in 2023.
As well as native-level English, Violeta speaks Romanian and fluent French and loves using these as well as her array of Western and Easter European, West Asian and Middle Eastern accents in her work.
Violeta lives in Nottingham and has bases in London, Manchester Suffolk, Devon as well as in Bucharest, Sofia, Paris and Oslo. She holds both UK and EU passports.
