I was not one of those children who wanted to be a rock star or a ballerina, let alone to be an actress.
I started this journey because at some point, when I was more or less 15 and I thought I had a pretty clear view of who I was and what I wanted to do, I asked myself if that was it: if that really was all I needed to know about myself.
So, as for many others before me, “What if…?” is the question that pushed me to step into my first theatre workshop at high school, then to send the application for the National Academy, and, afterwards, to accept Maria Shmaevich and Nikolaj Karpov’s invitation to perform in their play, to dare say yes to my first experiences on set, to welcome the collaboration with colleagues of other disciplines , to move to France, and then to Germany, and many other circumnstances that would make this list just too long.
I would lie if I would say that it was always easy, and that I found a solution to all the fears,doubts and uncertainties that were constantly chasing me during this journey. What I can say, though, is that even if I didn’t find a final answer, each time that I think of that 15 years old me, I am very glad I decided to make that first question.
