Polinka Tarasenko as “Liza”

What do you think you have in common with you character?

My character is harmful in my opinion. In real life I’m not like that. I wonder, how somebody can fall in love with me? Lisa does not look like me. In reality I have brown straight hair. I had to dye them every day and it was tough. But on the Argentinean music festival where I went immediately after the shooting, the unusual color of my hair has added some popularity. I wish I have a chance to play more music and not only trombone.

What does it mean for you as an actor to get this role?

This role opened the doors to the acting life for me. I discovered a new world — full of bright colors, attention and new friends. Of course, I was very lucky with the director Anatoly Mateshko, who noticed me , he is very kind and cheerful! In the same time – the screenwriter, Anastasia Mateshko helped me with a good advice. I would also like to thank all the team for their hard work and commitment. I do not know if I would be an actress. Hardly believe in that. Now I am a musician in “Gnesinka”, so it is hard for me even without the film. But still very desirable! I want to get role in a sci-fi movie, like Harry Potter. After all, there is still no film by the novel “Toreodors from Vasyukivka”. But the whole world reads this book or “Light and Hortik.”

How it was for you to work on set?

It was a lot of fun, I would say. A of nice and exciting moments. Everything was very interesting, because I was at first time in the role of a movie actress and it differs a lot from the theater. I saw a lot of famous actors and actresses, met a lot of new friends, an experience and memories that will last a lifetime.
