It seems that actress Hadas Yaron missed her coffee shop shift when she jetted over to Venice last Friday to accept the Coppa Volpi award for best actress at the 69th Venice Film Festival.

The 22-year-old Yaron won for her role in Rama Burshtein’s film, “Fill the Void,” about a tragedy within an ultra-Orthodox family in Tel Aviv.

Yaron had been in Venice for the screening of the film, but was back and ensconced in her life as a young, penurious waitress at a Dizengoff Street cafe in Tel Aviv when she received the call to return to Venice.

“She’s not a very good waitress,” admitted the cafe owner on “Good Evening with Guy Pines.” “She trips and falls over everything.”

It was a fairy tale kind of situation for Yaron, who rushed to find a dress for the event and then flew to Venice. “The paparazzi were in my face,” she said on “Good Evening.” “They told me to kiss the statue.”

Yaron has been acting since she was eight, yet hasn’t quite adjusted to her new fame.

“It’s funny that one night you’re in an evening gown and the next you’re back to serving coffee in the cafe.”

At least for now.
