Svetlana Nemolyaeva, actress:
“You have to be a noble person, regardless of age. Older generations, people with experience, of course, should support and help young people. I liked working with the director Olga Arlauskas, everything was very correct, calm and professional And the most important thing is that she and all the “Can’t Wait” movie crew are also good and caring people. “I have warm feelings about participating in this film and sincerely wish it success!”
Emmanuil Vitorgan, actor:
“I would advise young people not to rush. Especially not to rush to conclusions. There have been cases in my life when I rushed in vain and then failed to get through to the person I should have rushed to. Throughout of my life, I must try not to offend anyone and not get sad.
Natalya Varley, actress:
“First of all, it was very interesting to meet my old friends and colleagues, with whom I worked and whom I simply knew as actors. It was interesting for me to see how young actors work on their roles, their searches and adaptations were interesting.
Unlike our generation, today’s young actors are much more confident and not complex. Despite the fact that one of my scenes was filmed in rather difficult weather conditions: it was cold, they filmed out of season, everything was organized as well as possible and a very friendly and cordial atmosphere reigned on the set.
When the director knows exactly what he wants and can easily explain the task to the actor, the work becomes creative and joyful. There is desire and hope to meet again on the set.
My character’s story is a love story that occurs beyond adulthood. This makes me happy, it means that all ages are truly submissive to love. And the main thing in this story is that this is not a point, but an ellipsis…”
