A little earlier, at the capital’s airport, appeared the British actress Anna Shaffer, who played memorable roles in the series “The Witcher” and in the “Harry Potter” films.
Returning for the second time
“I can’t wait to meet all the fans at the event. We filmed a series in Lithuania, so the country is familiar to me. I also know Lithuanian snow,” Nikola Djuricko smiled as he stepped through the doors of the airport arrival hall.
During his career, spanning several decades, N. Djuricko played almost a hundred different roles in various genre films and television series. However, one of the most famous and memorable is the role of Yuri Ismailov in the American science fiction series “Stranger Things”.

More guests arriving
A little earlier, at the capital’s airport, a plane from the UK appeared with British actress Anna Shaffer, who gained fame for her role in the popular fantasy film “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”. In the film, the actress portrayed the charming and cheerful Gryffindor student Romilda Vane. After a successful performance, she was invited to film in two other Harry Potter films – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” Part One and Part Two.
