We finally got the opportunity to sit down with the wonderful Ksenia Solo, known for her role as Kenzi in Lost Girl, to discuss her TIFF 2017 film Tulipani: Love, Honour and a Bicycle, a Dutch-Italian-Canadian co-production.
For most folks, Ksenia Solo can be easily recognized for playing Kenzi Malikov in the critically-acclaimed and fan-loved show Lost Girl, that too for 67 episodes! The Latvian-Canadian got a lot of recognition for her performance on the show, winning the 2011 Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Series.
Beyond the Lost Girl world, Ksenia Solo has been involved in a number of critically-acclaimed productions, including Orphan Black, TURN: Washington’s Spies, Black Swan and Renegadepress.com.
She speaks Italian throughout the production, and rather well in fact. The conversation gave us an opportunity to discuss with her the journey of joining the film, and especially discussing the way in which she learns and tackles the Italian language, something she isn’t fluent in.
