Hmm, this was a discussion back in the yahoo group a while ago. I think I said Olga because I'm like her or Tatiana because I look like her.

I would play Olga, because I am most like her. Our personalities have much in common. I look more like Marie, but my looks are not compltely unlike Olga's so it would work.  8)

On the other hand, I would want a challenge, and would want to play the one I'm least like. So I'm not sure.

I think I can play Anastasia, we're both alike!

Hmmm...I like a challenge--Maria. I'm certainly no angel. 8)

Do you think Maria would be the hardest or easiest to play? Sometimes I think onstage it's hardest to get across a person's faults.

I think Marie would be one of the easiest. She was a angel, so sweet. I do think you should play a challenge, but then it is easiest to do a person who is like you, and maybe you do it best. If I was playing a challenge it would be Anastasia, because we have different personalities, being her would be hard. Then again very practical Tatiana, would be hard too... but just a bit. I am not that practical, and I don't think I could be described as ''The Governor'' remotely.  ;)

I think the fact that Maria is so perfect is why I don't relate with her as much as the others. I don't know ANYBODY like her. People have faults. Where are hers?

Maria was stubborn and had a temper like Olga.  She wasn't all this perfect, sweet child.  She could be rather rude.

I did'nt know Maria had a temper or was stubborn. Rude? I can't beleive that. Do you have any examples.

Yes, the only thing I have ever heard is "how perfect Mashka is". lol

Oh yea, Andy and I talked on AIM about this. :) Except we didn't have outside input and so we didn't know that she was rude...lol

Post by: Taneshka on October 29, 2005, 08:00:38 AM
I would play Tatiana. She is my favorite and I look like her. Plus, I don't need to be very expressive as Tatiana didn't really show her emotions.  :)
Title: Re: which otma would you play?
Post by: GrandDuchess_Bella on October 29, 2005, 08:49:44 AM
I think I would be Olga, considering that I'm kind of quiet, yet I show some emotion. I also have a temper (Don't worry, I rarely use it ::)) But then again, Tatiana might fit too.

I believe that that particular incident occured when Maria was a very young child.  As we are all aware, young children have a very hard time controling what they are feeling, or expressing it in words. I don't think that the event mentioned above is enough to determine her character, but I also think she was human.  Therefore, she probably had her share of temper outbursts, rudeness and any other negative emotion that we all feel and struggle with daily.

I would love to play any of them, being an actress and drama queen by nature I would put my life, heart, soul, mind, spirit, aura, body etc into it, but I think I would most like to play Olga or Tatiana. I know! Let's write and organize a play about NAOTMAA! We could have a set venue, etc and could call ourselves the Alexander Palace Time Machine Drama Club!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How cool would that be? Devoting every play to the Romanovs and Imperial Russia (We could do 'Le bourgeious gentilhomme' - the play that Maria and Anastasia acted parts of in August 1912!)
Whaddya think?

I kinda look like Anastasia. I have dark brown hair and blue eyes. I'm too young to play her though. :(

I would probably play Alexei best.. but seeing as I'm a girl XDD Maybe not.

Out of OTMA I think I could play any of them. I've been involved in theatre classes for about ten years and one of the things we learned in my classes was how important it is to be able to play various kinds of personalities/characters so you don't wind up locking yourself out of potential roles. So I could probably give a decent performance for any of them with a little time to prepare/research, but if I had to pick just one that I'd probably have the most fun with... either Tatiana because I have personality like hers or Anastasia because whenever I'm onstage I like to make everything I do "big" and she has the kind of personality where you could really have a ball with her character :)

It's a natural thing to do Aloysha,   I have been in my local community theatre group for 12 years.

My first role was a spoof on Helen of Troy.  When I found out who I was, I researched Helen of Troy and was like "Ah I get the line "Don't forget Paris.""

After that whatever character I was given I pick a background story and see what I could bring to life for the stage.   When I met my partner, I played Rosie from "Stepping Out" who had to endure racial comments and a brother (it actually was son) who couldn't find work.  It was a good role.   

My most memoriable was Man Friday from the story of Robinson Crousoe.   It was a panto. :p

I would play a horse.

If I had the possibility of playing OTMAA I should play Olga Nicholaievna. Non doubt. Her personnality is very close to mine... ;D

RealAnastasia.

Well,if I had to choose it would be Maria because she's the only one I look even the tiniest bit like and have a similar personality to.But I'm not exactly what you'd call an angel :)

I think I would play Tatiana. We're very alike. I have her eyes and nose. And I'm kinda bossy too  :D

In my last year of high school we were going to do a play titled OTMA: Four Sisters based in January 1913. There were songs, and the History Department was behind the historical accuracy. Out of the female roles they needed three mezzo sopranos for Olga, Tatiana and Maria and two altos for Anastasia and Alexandra but you also needed to know how to act.

I auditioned for one of the girls-it didn't matter-and auditioned with A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes from Cinderella. That Monday I was given the role of Tatiana. The play was impressive as a whole; the dresses matched the ones from pictures (the colours guessed or taken from books and letters), hairstyles from that year for example. It was amazing to star in.

Anyway, a friend noticed that I was cast not because of my singing but because of my height for instant, general bossiness and comparing pictures I did look like her. So I would play Tatiana. :)

Since I'm a guy, I can't play any of them.
