It's tough to write a bio about yourself. Especially when you are young. It's like what is there to say? What's apropriate to say? And who reads them anyways? So will tell you a bit about where I come from and will share some of my views on life and on my work. Here it goes:
I was born in Tallinn (very cute little medieval looking town in Europe) to a beautiful mother and a brilliant father (not even kidding my father is a genius). When I was 16 I left my mom and moved to Moscow and was lucky to be accepted to the great Moscow Art Theater School. Lived in the dorms with 4 other girls in one room for a year. That was one fun year. Poor girls (I used to be a sleep walker, talker and screamer ooops). But honestly that was the toughest 4 years of my life. Acting education in Russia isn't a piece of cake. But I have managed to survive and graduated from this tortures yet wonderful school. On any given moment I would go back and do it all over again. When I was 20 I came to New York to study acting for film in New York Film Academy. It wasnt Moscow Art Theater School, quite the opposite but still it was a great experience. I mean there is not much bio. So I will share my favorite quotes and thoughts of my own. How I think and feel about life.
In terms of my work: for me acting has been a part of my life since I was 4. And I can't come up with anything else that I love doing as much. I used to teach acting to kids and that was pretty amazing. I would love to get more into directing. But I am an actress and I love it from the bottom of my hreat, really. Especially if you are doing material that touches you deeply and you see that it has a strong effect on the audience as well. When I did My Poor Marat. A play about the siege of Leningrad in 1941. Where half of a million people died from starvation in one winter, by doing these kind of projects you learn how to apreciate simple things like food, your parents, life itself and many other things. So I am not chasing fame really, I am chasing good work that would be properly apreciated because acting is a tough job. But if you trully love it, it's the best job.
