Elena Yakovleva

The film company "Favorit film" started shooting the 12-part film "Vangelia" about the legendary soothsayer.
Vangelia Dimitrova or Vanga (31 January 1911 – 11 August 1996) was a blind Bulgarian mystic, supposed clairvoyant and herbalist who spent most of her life in the Rupite area in the Kozhuh mountains, Bulgaria.
Elena Yakovleva agreed to play the role of 70-year-old Vanga. Three actresses refused to play this role.
A special mask had been preparing for six month to make Elena old. And it took five hours daily to make Makeup.



It was shot the scene of Vanga's meeting with Hitler. On February 2, 1943 Hitler came to know his fate. Vanga's words were: "You should not go to Russia, you'll lose". But Hitler did not believe her.
Many of the actors were personally acquainted with Vanga. Moreover, she had predicted some of them shooting in "Vangelia".
They say, the series will be shown in autumn 2013 on the First Channel.
