Beloved by many, an actress with an outlandish German surname is a real Petersburger. She was born in the center of the northern capital, in a house overlooking St. Isaac’s Cathedral, near the monument to the Bronze Horseman. “The charm of my city from childhood entered the soul and bewitched for the rest of my life …”
Intelligent acting fate linked Alice Freindlich primarily with the theatrical stage. She played in the Komissarzhevskaya Theater and the Lensovet Theater. She has gone from the role of travesty to serious dramatic roles. In her repertoire, and the role of the Kid in the children’s play “Toddler and Carlson”, and – the dream of any actress – the young Juliet, whom Freindlich played at the age of 30.

Today we celebrate a double birthday: on this day, with a difference of 13 minutes, actors James and Oliver Phelps were born. How is it – you don’t know who they are? You know, you know! It’s just that we are better known to them under the names of Fred and George Weasley, the hooligan twins from the Harry Potter series of films (by the way, they also played Gideon and Fabian Pruett, members of the first Order of the Phoenix).

Five years ago, the Austrian village where he was born declared July 30 the official day of Arnold. The authorities even wanted to erect a monument to the Terminator there. In popularity, Arnie is perhaps superior to many “brutal” actors. But let’s see who could still compete with him.

Jean-Claude Van Damme, although he refused to participate, but then he nevertheless starred in the second part, which will be released in August this year. Continue reading
