Everyone has their own story about Marina.I think it's an unforgettable moment when you see her in person for the first time.What did you feel when you first saw her with your own eyes? It was a very important moment for me.In our country, Hollywood and famous foreign actors are as if they exist in another galaxy, they seem unreachable.We inherited this from the Cold War. It's hard to describe the moment when I saw Marina for the first time.The actress known on the screen (and on Twitter) suddenly became a reality there and at that moment.It was as if some cool, soothing energy surrounded me.It was a wonderful and terrifying feeling at the same time, but it was worth it. I just didn't know what to do next. I was scared.I was afraid that I would remain silent, I was afraid that I would make a fool of myself. ( My mental shield collapsed. ) But I had a friend who helped me, and somehow I managed to pull myself together.

A sister friend of mine had encouraged me to go to the con to meet Marina. I felt as though I was in a dream, like it couldn't possibly be happening. I was in the same state as her? The same city? The same ROOM?! OMGSH! 😱
Another friend of mine was at the same con, my first I might add, and he pulled me up to her table, introduced us and asked if she would take a picture w me... apparently I was so scared, it was in the first pic so he told me to smile, Marina then said, "yeah Bekah smile," and she started to lightly tickle my shoulder... ohmalord I was going to drop dead right there y'all.
Marina’s presence and energy can be felt the moment she walks into the room. I still feel it even after all these years. And my first time I could barely speak and my legs felt weak 😁
I'd be too embarrassed to meet someone like that in person.
