Each of us has our own character and rhythm of work. Torstensen is a slow person. And at first glance, such a quality is already completely unsuited to television. Everything in television is done quickly. More often than not, even hastily and in a rush. There’s no rush at all in AndreiTorstensen, and in my eyes, that's remarkable. One day, my husband, the director Anatoly Efros, describe him well. Seeing that I was getting anxious from how slowly and, in my eyes, clumsily and not according to plan the work on that day’s program was going, Efros said, “Quit rushing. Andrei is an artist. You need to believe him from here on out.” From that time I understood, from there on out, the most important thing in Andrei Torstensen. He doesn’t “come up with” a program like some kind of tradesman. The concept for the work at hand arises in him according to laws which words can’t describe. Stanislavsky himself didn’t even know these words, though it may seem to everyone in the arts that he found a definition.
