Aleksandra came into acting few years ago when she immigrated to Toronto. She played few seasons with a local Russian speaking theatre, then got involved gradually in the English plays with various community theatres and festivals. Most recent roles include Edith Frank in Marion Abbott Production (Box Toronto) of “The Diary of Anne Frank”, and Madame Giles in a solo show “Red Lacquered Box” (The New Ideas Festival at Alumnae Theatre). Along with theatre, Aleksandra’s focus is on camera work as well, as she has taken parts in student, indie/short, feature films. Her favourite roles include Vesna in the student film “Bosniak” (which was her film debut), Valentina in the short “Valentina” (shot on 35mm film), and most recent feature film “1989”. And now she is thrilled to begin the travel all the way to the post apocalyptic world of “Forgotten Corpses”!
