Actress Elina Bystritskaya was friends with Lyudmila Zykina. People’s actress of the USSR, which recently celebrated the 90th anniversary, thought about the relationship with the singer, jealousy of colleagues and talked about what helps her look so good.
This year, April 8, Elina Bystritskaya said 90-year anniversary. The actress continued to lead a rather active lifestyle. And though doctors urged her to abandon the performances and rehearsals, Elina Avraamovna often participates in concerts, shared or solo, creative meetings. As a rule, Bystritskaya at such events, sings romances and songs of the war years.
Oddly enough to play the individual songs actress started only after 80 years, and before that she only occasionally sang in performances. Elina Avraamovna admitted that singing at the time she actually forbade Lyudmila Zykina.
“We were friends of Lyudmila Zykina. Remember, in 1985, participated in the staging of Teatr estrady “war has no female face”, where I did a lot of singing. Even in the German language. Lyudmila said that it was not mine. And I forgot about it. And now, after eighty years, began performing entire concerts. I like to sing,” said Elina Bystritskaya.
Few people in the age Bystritskaya looks as good as she is. Therefore, she often asked about the appearance and ways of keeping in shape. The actress doesn’t know any special recipes, but doesn’t deny – she is a person strong-willed, determined, and always works hard on ourselves.
“Every day at home to exercise. Well, the usual gymnastics with young gantelkami. Of course, monitor your diet. There’s nothing new to say. I can’t loose, untidy. Get up in the morning and before you go out, comb your hair nicely, do makeup, have long and meticulously dressed. And again, the person gets old and looks bad when made in life bad things. This is the main condition – not to do bad to another! And do not lie,” – said Elina Bystritskaya.
Elina Bystritskaya always ask about the role that made her the favourite actress of the Soviet Union and all the Cossacks: the role of Aksinya in “and Quiet flows the don”. Mikhail Sholokhov chose the Bystritskaya on this star, a very bright and challenging role. Play Cossack girl wanted and Nonna Mordjukova, but did not get the role. Mordjukova was so worried that the role went not to her, then frankly offended by the Director Gerasimov, and criticized the Bystritskaya. Elina Avraamovna all attempts of conversations on this topic repress on the vine – “I am often asked about it. But I didn’t know about it. Yes, and tell me it’s nothing. It so happened that I played this role I am and happy about it”, – quotes the Bystritskaya sobesednik.ru
