Exclusive Interview With Kristina Anapau, She Talks Black Swan & Superman Reboot


I had the chance to get an Exclusive Interview with Kristina Anapau last week and get some insight to how she prepared for her role in Black Swan. I also tried to twist her arm for more information about the rumors about her auditioning for the upcoming SuperMan reboot.


Kristina had planned to become a classical ballerina, having trained seriously since the age of 5. But after graduating from high school at fifteen (Yes 15) she attended the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, where she was discovered and cast in an Oahu-filmed television movie Escape From Atlantis; that was the start of her career. She made her rounds on to Television shows (CSI: NY,House) and smaller movie roles, then she was cast in Cruel Intentions 3(Cassidy Merteuil). Next up was a staring role in the Wes Craven Horror film Cursed starring opposite Shannon Elizabeth, Jesse Eisenberg and Milo Ventimiglia.


Anapau was a cover model for Stuff magazine. She was also one of Stuff magazine's "103 Sexiest Women in the World". As well as one of Stuff Magazine's "Hollywood's Most Wanted- 50 Hottest Women to Watch"


In her biggest role to date Kristina Anapau plays Galina in Black Swan. She talked with me about her experiences on the film and much more.


1.So let's start with Black Swan. How was the whole casting process for this film? Did you have to do any dancing or anything special to audition for this role?

I met with Darren in Los Angeles and read for him. He asked me to put myself on tape doing an excerpt of Swan Lake, which I did. The casting process was a long one. About a month and a half later, I found out I got the part. I was thrilled, as Darren is one of my all time favorite directors, and of course getting to to do a ballet film after training classically since age 4 was a dream.



2. Having being trained in classical ballerina, since the age of 4 must have helped you get the role. And what age and why did you stop dancing?

Yes, having a ballet background definitely helped me get the role. I stopped dancing on a daily basis around age 17 after being cast in my first movie. I had to choose where I would direct my focus and I chose acting. I still attended dance class to keep in shape and went through several phases of dancing a lot, but for the most part, my intense training stopped at 17.

I had to really work hard to get back in top form for Black Swan. I was in the best shape of my life when we wrapped.



3. I'm sure your tired of hearing this but how was it working with Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis?

Both Natalie and Mila are absolutely lovely and very inspiring to work with.


It was a privilege.



4. Now that Superman has been cast for the upcoming Reboot. We have heard online that you are a favorite for the role of Lois Lane. Have you been approached or done any screen test?

Not really sure what I'm allowed to say about that just now;)



5. How does it feel to be a triple threat in Hollywood. Actor, Dancer and Singer? (At age 20, Kristina landed a recording contract with Hollywood Records and spent much of that year recording an album and opening for Destiny's Child on MTV's TRL Tour, but her true love and passion remained performing in the film and television mediums.)

I feel incredibly lucky to have the talents that I do, and even luckier to be able to create and express them on a professional level.
