Actress Anna Khilkevich told about her character in «The Forgotten Miracle»
Actress and TV-host Anna Khilkevich, who voiced schoolgirl blogger Nastia Druzhinina in the cartoon «The Forgotten Miracle», gave an interview about her character. The animated feature film by GPM KIT Group companies (part of Gazprom-Media), produced by the Parovoz studio with the support of «Rostec» State Corporation, will be released in Russian cinemas on July 16.
According to the plot of the cartoon, classmates Dima, Nastia and Gosha sneak away from their tour group in the Holy Trinity Sergius Lavra and start to explore it on their own, looking for treasures. In one of the towers of the monastery, the children find by chance a magic portkey that takes them to the past. Since that moment, their main goal is to get back home. To achieve it, the children have to go through the «wonderful forest» of the XIV century when Russia was conquested by the Mongol horde. Saint Sergius of Radonezh helps the classmates during their journey.
Nastia is a vivid flirt, a fashionista who can’t get off her phone. When she gets to the 14th century, she has to learn the life without her favorite gadget and find a common language with her mates.
«When any person, regardless of age, faces challenges, he grows and changes. In this cartoon, the adventures of the characters are utmost difficult. That is why, from a shallow and self-centered girl my character turns into a deep, wise teen who knows how to make friends, help and look inward. In some way Nastia even becomes a role-model for our children, as we would like to see them — cordial, kind, able to act,» says the actress.
«I’ve believed in miracles for all my life. But over the past few years, there were so many of them … that now I feel that the whole life is a miracle! In our cartoon there is a place for a miracle. The main characters are not left alone in the world! Next to us, there is always someone who is ready to help, support or give advice at the right time. I recommend watching this film with the whole family.»
