Cheburashka was played by Olga Kuzmina. “Cheburashka is an amazing creature who magically entered the world of people, where there are rules and laws. During the filming, everything was unusual. I had to turn on the imagination, because Cheburashka was not in the frame. It was played without me : for example, how Gena takes Cheburashka in her arms, scratches him behind the ear. To bring Cheburashka back to life, facial expressions, gaze, posture, gestures were important! It was not an easy experience, but very interesting and unforgettable, “says the actress. .

Perhaps this is the most difficult form of drama when within a work you have a children’s layer in the form of attraction, entertainment, jokes and quite deep drama for an adult viewer.
