‘Unorthodox’ Star Shira Haas Talks Over Audition Scene, The Scariest Scene To The Miniseries

Shira Haas, gaining international recognition for portraying ‘Esther “Esty” Shapiro’ in the Netflix miniseries ‘Unorthodox,’ appeared on Entertainment Weekly Zoom Chat as a guest, and opened up about the moment she was most nervous in the miniseries shooting: The audition scene.

In the film, the character, ‘Esty’ has an audition to gain admission into a prestigious music school. The actress, who scored her first Emmy nomination with an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series nod, told about that moment:

“It was more of a surprise. The only one that heard it was maybe two people of the production and I really worked on it by myself. I almost felt like Esty in that moment, because no one knew what would come out of me, and I was really nervous and I felt like I’m auditioning because everyone’s like, ‘Ooh what will come out?’ And there were so many people there and so many cameras, it was one of the biggest shooting days.”

The 25-year-old actress, appearing in ‘Shtisel,’ stated that she took vocal lessons to prepare her role, anyhow, she could not prevent to shaking of her voice.

 “The first take my voice was shaking, and I was so nervous so when it ended I was like ‘Phew, okay, I need one more take, please. I was a bit overwhelmed after the first take and then I was more confident, but I was really like Esty.”

The actress also said that in that scene she felt the character who is trying to find her voice:

“It’s almost like her approaching to God, in a way. Because I don’t think it’s a scene or a story about the existence of God or not the existence of God, but it’s about taking it into your own hands, and finding your own God. It’s almost like praying, and also she gets to finally scream her scream. She’s really screaming it at the end, and it was everything that she needed to do.”
