Polina Larkina (She/Her)
Get to know Polina.
- What is your Favourite film or book?
My favourite book is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This great novel makes me dive into the mind-created space that becomes real to me while I am reading it. It almost feels like that imaginable space and the characters come to life while my eyes are running along the lines of the text.
I remember my imagination going wild to the point where I thought that somewhere far away what I am reading is happening at the same time.
- When you’re not modelling, what else are you up to?
Right now I’m in my last year at Capilano University Bachelor of Performing Arts degree program.
One of my biggest passions in life is acting. I graduated from the Vancouver Film School acting program where I’ve discovered even more how much I love character work.
Aside from studying at Capilano University I also take acting workshops, go on hikes and right now I’m thinking of going to Harbour Dance Centre to drop in dancing classes.
I also filmed the English/Punjabi movie called Snowman where I played a very strong female character who’s a widow. Snowman is going to be released on November 5th which I’m extremely excited about
- What is your biggest motivation?
My biggest motivation is my family. I’ve always been inspired by my parents, my husband, and my siblings. All of them are so incredibly unique with their career paths in life. What motivates me is seeing their success which explains their passion for what they are doing.
- What is one thing you have always wanted to learn or know how to do?
Studying French as my 3rd language has always been my dream and I’m incredibly happy that I’ve already started learning it. I think it’s one of the most beautiful languages on earth.
