I did a lot of singing, theatre and modeling. My artistic brain—I like how I see the world. And the people, they are noisy and crazy but they have big hearts. It just felt totally natural that I would be doing those things. It is not that I am bad now but there is always something to learn. What do you consider to be your best physical feature? It is amazing, feels like home to me.
Honestly, it was a dream come true. I miss the smell of a Russian spring after a long, dark winter. Being onstage just made me happy. I have dated very poor men and very rich men.
What would you like to be doing in 10 years? The Russian mentality is like this: if you are a girl, your main goal in life is to get married. I was sworn to secrecy. After modeling for a bit, you start to want something more than just posing. It was not an easy decision for me, even though I have been singing, performing and playing the piano my whole life. How important is money to you when you are dating someone? How was working with Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey? Now to accompany that track is a brand new music video that just released in mid-August. We are just afraid to believe it and use our powers.
Music is a very intimate and very pure thing, to frame it and make it work in the industry is a big decision. How do you divide your time between acting, singing and modeling? It was pretty inspiring to work with them and watch them act. I would perform skits for my parents in the mornings before school, and then once I got to school I would perform there, too. The romantic thriller is under tight wraps until its early 2016 release. That idea nauseates me because I grew up around that and I have an incredible desire to be independent. When you know who you are and what you want in life.
Puppies, Diet Coke and the '90s make me happy. I travel, I exercise, I see friends as much as I can, but my mind is always going back to the work I want to do. I listen to my heart and I always follow it. Did you have to train for those mini-fight scenes? I never needed to walk away from a scene or take a minute to myself to recover. We had a team of stuntmen and they were ruling the process of fight scenes.
Sure, we can talk about the storyline and everything but the real star of the video had to be the triple threat Alina Aliluykina. Which, of course, means making time for all of that as well. I do not have a type. But I am finally ready and I want to inspire people and celebrate life and go through life sometimes it gets very tough together. When you first looked at what the role entailed, what were your initial thoughts? Los Angeles especially, feels like I live in a paradise, surrounded by artists who are interesting, passionate, brave to dream big and express themselves via their art. .
What was it like on set to work with the two? Making films and making music but in a more advanced form. I worked before with the same production team and director, it was a small job, nothing exciting, but they remembered my work and offered this project. What is your best non-physical feature? The heart is not a calculator. If we took a peek into your iPod, what would be playing at this moment? When I came to America from Russia, it was just a given that I would continue performing.

Check out the interview below to see what it was like to work with the two artists, how she got her career in the entertainment industry and where we can see her next! How did you first get into acting? The same things I am doing now—art.
Those guys are cool and I love the song. I am very excited about the film. What kinds of guys are you usually attracted to? When you are moving towards your goals no matter what. You can keep up with Alina Aliluykina on Instagram. Work is honestly my favourite way to spend time.
Look around, everything you see is created by a person just like you are, including the words we are speaking with right now. The colors are bright and the feelings are strong. I grew up a very artistic child. It is inspiring, because we are all superheroes. I also want to have kids and discover the world again with them—I think that would be magic.
