MACEDONIAN GIRL OF 1001 NIGHTS



Entertainment.

How many of you know this girl? I bet no one unless you are living in Holland.
Macedonia Daily presents: "Touriya Haoud" This girl, born in the Netherlands to a Macedonian mother and a Moroccan father is an actress, model and singer. Not just an actress, model or singer but a succesfull one too!

A friend of Touriya made her participate in a modeling contest. Touriya not only won, but also from that moment on, she never looked back. She became a model for Tommy Hilfiger, Replay, posed in Playboy, Maxim and made commercials for Campari and TIM, Italy's leading telecom network where Naomi Campbell was her predecessor.
Inbetween her modeling, Touriya took various acting classes and landed a lead role in the popular Dutch television series "Hartslag", the Dutch version of ER, soon followed by her movie debut in the Dutch movie "Shouf Shouf Habibi" wich was not only accepted to the prestigious Berlin Film Festival, but was also honored with the Public Choice Award.

In 2005 she went to Hollywood where she got a role in her first U.S. movie, "Five Fingers" and soon she will be seen in the movie "Prisoners of the Sun".


MD: She is probably the only Macedonian in Hollywood and not known at all among the Macedonians. And Oh yeah, she is married to American actor Greg Vaughan. :(

    Filmmaker Milcho Manchevski, born in Skopje in 1959, immigrated to the United States in 1982 to study film and photography at the University of Southern Illinois. After directing dozens of commercials and music videos, for which he became well-known, he made his feature film debut in 1994 with Before the Rain. A three-part story set in contemporary Macedonia and London, the film explores love and fate within the context of ancient Macedonian traditions and conflicts. The film won the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival.

    Nick Vanoff (1929-1991), born in Vevi, near Salonika, enjoyed a highly successful career as a Hollywood television and film producer.
