Anna, can you tell us about your beginnings as an actress?
My love for acting began at a very young age. As a child, I was always drawn to storytelling and make-believe. I vividly remember putting on impromptu performances for my family and friends and reenacting scenes from my favourite movies and TV shows. It was in those moments that I realised how much joy and fulfilment I found in bringing characters to life and connecting with an audience.


Who inspired you to become an actor and why?
I was introduced to the stage from an early age by my grandfather, a famous theatre actor back in Moscow, who used the Stanislavski method. It sparked an interest in performing, so I spent my childhood growing up in the theatre, starring in productions and dreaming of leading roles in plays and movies.


What are your plans for the future?
I still have many dreams and aspirations! One of my biggest goals is to take on a challenging lead role in a feature film that allows me to delve into a multifaceted character. I'm also eager to explore different genres, from drama to comedy, and even action roles. I've always been passionate about social issues, and I'd love to use my platform as an actress to be part of projects that shed light on important topics and make a positive impact on society.
