NTV Channel’s ‘Vsyo Srazu’ went on the set of ‘Finding t.A.T.u.’, where Lena Katina and Julia Volkova were on hand, as well as the film’s star Mischa Barton.
The segment described Barton’s meeting with the singer’s as a “chilly” one. “In America, t.A.T.u. haven’t got even a half of their popularity they have here in Russia,” Barton said. “So I learned most about t.A.T.u. here.” Vokova sounded similarly dismissive. “I don’t know who was Mischa Barton,” the then pregnant singer said. “I mean, for me… I don’t know. Maybe she is popular there on their TV series, as they told us. And here I kind of haven’t heard anything about her.”
As for how the film captures the faux lesbian pop duo, Katina said, “Well, I think they understood what it is like, what our life is while already being here, so I guess it’s not hard to try, just to try to express our atmosphere as it is here in reality.” Watch the report, in Russian with English subtitles, below.
