'Prisoners of War' Character Profiles: Uri

Uri Zach was 23 when he was captured. Unlike NImrode, Uri is the shy and timid type. He never had big ambitions other than living a simple, happy life with his family and his beloved fiancée Nurit. Uri is gentle, serious, smart. He does not like being the center of attention and is not happy with the new attention he gets from the media, he would prefer nobody knew who he was and no one would recognize him. Throughout the series we learn that he managed to survive in captivity through a unique relationship he had with one of his captors. The first thing Uri needs to cope with is the discovery that Nurit, the love of his life, did not wait for him and is now married to his brother.
