As Anfisa Chernykh admitted, she did not like the figure of the understudy
Actress Anfisa Chernykh told in an interview with Izvestia about filming explicit scenes in the film The Geographer Drank His Globe Away.
“There was a funny story. When I was told about this scene, I immediately refused. The producers said, “Okay, we’ll find you a stunt double.” On the day when it was necessary to shoot, I was shown this understudy – flat as a vobla. I look at her and understand that the country will think that it is me. At that moment I realized that I’d rather show my ass, ”the actress said.
In June 2015, the actor of the Tchaikovsky Drama Theater Anatoly Bersenev, who played the role of one of the schoolchildren in the film, died in the Perm Territory. He drowned in the Shakva River. Bersenev was 21 years old.
