Having worked from a very young age, it was natural that we wondered what drives her. So Barbara, what drives your will to act?
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here” that’s a poem by Max Hermann. Yes, I am a child of the universe and I want to create it through art by contributing my emotions and everything that’s best in me. Acting to me is a multidimensional area of the arts which relates to almost all human senses; connecting words, visual arts movement and sound. The dependence between the audiences’ sensations from actors’ emotions and most importantly a complicated process of creating a character through psychological analysis are just one of the things that drive my will to act. Moreover, the actors’ responsibility for power of expression and the way of transferring the words is extremely fascinating. I adore the possibility of getting into a character, going through the brightest and darkest nooks of character’s brain and creating its personality traits for it to be special and unforgettable. Those aspects are to me most appealing and strongly drive me.
Words, Words, Words – Plays. What is your favourite play?
“The Crucible” and “A View from the Bridge” by Arthur Miller
What’s one role you’d really like to play?
It’s really hard to pick just one! Currently, my dream character is Frida Khalo from American biopic drama film “Frida”.
I’ve been shooting a short film with an award-winning director, which should be out in mid/end of 2017. Due to my contract I can’t give out much about it but I guarantee you’ll be able to read about it soon. Also, I’ve done few photo shoots in the UK and the USA and been on the set for a few adverts. You can soon see me in “Burberry” Christmas campaign and also in the music video of American based artists Lemaitre ft. Stanaj “Playing to Lose”. First of all, I’m focusing on my current film rehearsals and new auditions. In the meantime, I’m also having meetings about future theatre work, which includes great Eastern European writing.
