American musician and actor Jared Leto, who visited Kyiv many times, performed on the streets of the Ukrainian capital and climbed the support of Kyiv bridges to take a selfie, will play legendary artist of Ukrainian origin Andy Warhol, as Leto reported on Instagram.
To celebrate the birthday of Warhol (the artist was born on August 6, 1928), Leto published his portrait with signature: “Yes it’s true I will be playing Andy Warhol in an upcoming film. And so grateful and excited about the opportunity. Happy belated birthday Andy. We miss you and your genius”.
The real name of Andy Warhol is Andrew Warhola. He was a son of the descents of Mikova village (currently – the territory of Slovakia) populated by Lemkos – Ukrainian Carpathian ethnos. His mother Julia almost did not speak English, wore vyshyvanka, and painted pysanky. She had a great influence on her son.
As we reported, for the first time in history, Netflix is shooting one of its films in Ukraine. It will be a comedy action movie called "The Last Mercenary", which will tell a story about political intrigue at the state level. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Alban Ivanov are on the list of actors.
