After enchanting victory in the “Eurovision 2016” with a song “1944” Jamal has become the undisputed symbol of the song contest. Noted its importance and the American producers who invited Ukrainian singer to star in the film “Eurovision: a History of fire Saga” (Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga). About how it was, the star said in his Instagram.
“In July last year I received a letter approximately such contents: “Dear Jamal! We are shooting a film about the Eurovision song contest. We would like you to take part in it, because you’re the heart and soul of Eurovision”. And signature: David Dobkin and will Ferrell. Seriously? I was invited to star Director of the film “wedding Crashers” and “Shanghai knights” David Dobkin and the king of Comedy will Ferrell? Here is the event!
On the set I was impressed with everything, starting with respect the green areas near the location to the number of production people and the professionalism of the crew. When I first went to an ancient castle where they filmed my scene, I thought I was in a fairy tale! Everything looked amazing. Actors and extras were so beautiful that it was impossible to look away. Operator Danny Cohen (by the way, nominated for “Oscar”!) and Director David Dobkin really explained in detail what they want to see in the frame. Later, I met with will Ferrell, unreal Rachel McAdams (I love “the notebook”) and the famous handsome Dan Stevens.

Imagine I entered the dressing room and the first thing I hear — “When strangers are coming”…. Dan begins to sing “1944”! And Rachel, suitable, shakes hands and says that she is very excited to meet me. Of course, I understand that they have to talk to colleagues nice things, but I still can’t tell my emotions at that moment! To do this movie was a huge pleasure.
Most memorable was the meeting with the brightest participants of the Eurovision of different years. When we all came together, it was like a reunion. To find himself in such company it was very cool and soulful! And Yes, of course, we were supposed to meet everyone on the red carpet in beautiful dresses at the premiere, but… this year is “river changes course”. Pleasant viewing,” wrote Jamal under the photo with Rachel McAdams and others.
