Irrefutably talented, normal, and with stunning seems to be, Svetlana followed a charmed path to her 1st US feature film “Slingshot,” starring opposite David Arquette, Thora Birch and Balthazar Getty. Though she always spoke English fluently, Metkina worked specially hard to bring her skillful acting into English for the first time. Thriving in the collaborative environment of this film, Metkina enjoyed the enthusiasm of the film’s first-time director Jay Alaimo. Metkina’s character had originally been scripted as a man, but they turned the character into a tough independent woman, a jewel fence going by the moniker “Fast Bobby.” The film premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival.
Next in the cards for Metkina, “Mini’s First Time” featured her in a superb cast alongside Luke Wilson, Alec Baldwin, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jeff Goldblum and Nikki Reed, who Metkina located “hilariously funny.” Metkina plays the tasty part of Russian trophy wife “Jelena.” The sexy darkly comic thriller will premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival.
Svetlana’s creativity in developing her characters is illuminated by a painstaking thoroughness. She contemplates every single aspect of a character action by step. Stories based on classical literature or important historical events are Svetlana’s absolute favorite type of films of which to be a part.
