Today we’d like to introduce you to Anna Bubnova.
Anna, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was born and raised in Ukraine. Growing up, I had passion for the arts, and I was involved in school plays, dancing competitions and theater. After high school I went to the Academy of the Interior Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and earned a B.A in translation of English and French languages. Which became my next passion later on as I loved learning new languages. At the moment I fluently speak four. I always had a desire for exploring new places, food, cultures so that’s what made me a full time traveler. I’ve started my journey in the States while getting my first summer job as a lifeguard. When the student exchange program ended, I realized that it’s just a beginning of a lifetime passion for traveling. That summer absolutely changed my life! After that I’ve worked in hotels and restaurants of UAE and offices in Poland. I couldn’t stop thinking of new countries to explore so I’ve traveled the entire Europe and some Asian countries in a year or so. While learning so many things in a short period of time I got immersed in a crazy lifestyle and totally forgot about the passion that I had since I was a little girl. I’m talking about Acting. Something I could be doing 24/7 with a smile on my face. Realizing that I went back to school which was a New York Film Academy (NYC) and started learning more about the craft. I’ve definitely had the best time of my life studying there! Next step LA and its beauty and opportunities. I moved to Los Angeles early winter a year ago and since then been consistently taking acting classes while booking short films and commercial campaigns.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It definitely has not been a smooth road. But I absolutely love challenging myself and working hard every single day towards my goals. Imagine a foreign student coming to L.A. and having it all started from the bottom. But I know what it takes to become who I am today and I’m absolutely ready to work even harder. Having a few auditions, a day makes you feel more confident and stronger. I’m so happy to have finally found a strong team of agents who love my look, my accent and ability to learn. I’m currently signed with Luxe Talent Agency for commercial and theatrical representation.
Please tell us about your work.
I’m an actor, model and a hustler. I’m proud to be where I’m nowadays and working hard for it. I have a strong determination and commitment when it comes to achieving my goals. I feel so grateful to have been given the opportunities I have had in this short time of being in Los Angeles. Since I moved here, I’ve already had a chance to be taking part in big brand names commercials such as: Nike, Kickstarter, Halls and many more. Also been featured in a Top Gun Maverick starring Tom Cruise. I’m blessed to be a part of big productions but I still never refuse to work as a background actor because it’s always better to be on set and learn than home. At the same time, I’m trying hard to find time for acting classes. Currently I’m taking an Improv class in Second City School and we just had out first show last week!
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
When it comes to childhood, I’ve spent so much time being raised by my aunt who later moved to Florida to accomplish her dreams. She had this fighter spirit in her heart that I inherited. That is where my passion for acting and traveling comes from. Also, I love my parents who always struggled to give me the best they could. I could never stay home so they paid for summer camping’s every single year. Those would have to be my favorite times and memories.
