Shlomit Azoulay was born in New York. Her parents grew up in Israel, and her father was born in Morocco. Shlomit is grateful for her multicultural upbringing and her fluency in Hebrew. She attributes her proficiency in speaking in almost any accent to her eclectic background (her grandparents are Spanish and Turkish and spoke six languages). Shlomit graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 2013. She was recently cast as Noura Al-Kitabi in Madam Seceratary, "Left of the Boon" episode.
