  • BAKALOVA!

  • ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) HI!

  • >> HI.

  • >> James: HOW ARE YOU?

  • SUPER HAPPY, SURE NERVOUS.

  • EXCITED, MAYBE MORE NERVOUS THAN WHEN SHOOTING THE MOVIE.

  • >> NO, YOU CAN'T BE MORE NERVOUS WHEN YOU'RE SHOOTING THE MOVIE

  • THAN TO BE HERE NOW.

  • WE SHOULD SAY THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME ON A LATE-NIGHT TALK SHOW.

  • >> YEAH.

  • AND WE'RE SO EXCITED THAT YOU'RE HERE.

  • WE'RE SO HAPPY THAT YOU'RE HERE.

  • EVERYTHING THAT'S BEEN HAPPENING TO YOU SINCE THE FILM CAME OUT,

  • THE FILM IS OBVIOUSLY A HUGE HIT, YOUR PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN

  • SINGLED OUT BY EVERYBODY.

  • WHAT'S LIFE BEEN LIKE SINCE THE FILM CAME OUT?

  • >> WHAT LIFE'S BEEN LIKE, I'M LUCKY TO LIVE HERE RIGHT NOW BUT

  • AT THE SAME TIME I'M LUCKY THAT IT'S NOT A GOOD THINGS BECAUSE

  • COVID SAVED ME.

  • I'M KIND OF WORRIED ABOUT IF COVID DOESN'T EXIST AND PEOPLE

  • DON'T WEAR MASKS THEY WILL PROBABLY RECOGNIZE ME AND

  • ESPECIALLY GIRLS ARE GOING TO SAY HELLO TO ME LIKE, HI!

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> James: I THINK THE REASON

  • PEOPLE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT YOU AND YOUR CAREER RIGHT NOW IS YOU

  • HAVE TO ALL OF US COME FROM NOWHERE.

  • YOU MADE A COUPLE OF FILMS IN BULGARIA BEFORE.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> James: YOU HAVEN'T DONE A COMEDY OR IMPROV BEFORE, AND 600

  • OTHER ACTORS AUDITIONED FOR THIS PART.

  • TALK TO ME ABOUT THE AUDITION PROCESS FOR A FILM LIKE BORAT.

  • >> YEAH, I'M COMING FROM BULGARIA, BUT, ACTUALLY, WHEN I

  • DID THE RECORDING, I DID IT AT 5:00 A.M. AFTER THE UNIVERSITY

  • AND MY FRIEND SHOWED IT AS A JOKE.

  • I THOUGHT, IT'S NOT A REAL AUDITION THEY'RE GOING TO DO

  • HUMAN TRAFFICKING ON ME.

  • >> James: THAT'S HONESTLY WHERE YOUR MIND WENT.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> James: THEN YOU SEND IN THE TAPE, YOU REALIZE YOU'RE NOT

  • BEING HUMAN TRAFFICKED.

  • HOW MANY AWE CIGSINGS DO YOU GO THROUGH BEFORE YOU AUDITION FOR

  • IMPROV WITH SACHA.

  • >> IT WAS AFTER MY GRADUATION AND I FINALLY HAD MY DIPLOMA AND

  • I'M IMPROVISING SOMETHING THAT MY DADDY IS THE BEST DADDY IN

  • THE WHOLE FLAT WORLD BECAUSE HE GIVES ME CIGARETTES, HE ALLOWS

  • ME TO DRINK AND EVERYTHING IS AMAZING.

  • SO I SENT ANOTHER ONE AND ANOTHER ONE AND PROBABLY TWO

  • MORE AFTER THAT.

  • I FLY TO ENGLAND, MY MOM WAS CRYING, SHE WAS, LIKE, AM I EVER

  • GOING TO SEE YOU AGAIN?

  • I WAS, LIKE, MAYBE.

  • MAYBE IT'S GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

  • BUT, AT THE SAME TIME IT WAS, LIKE, IT'S GOING TO BE MY FIRST

  • TIME TRAVELING ALONE, I HAVE TO DO IT.

  • I WENT THERE AND SACHA WAS THERE, AN THAT'S HOW I STARTED.

  • >> James: THERE WAS SO MUCH SECRECY SURROUNDING THE MOVIE, I

  • MEAN, AM I RIGHT THAT YOU COULDN'T EVEN TELL YOUR PARENTS

  • WHAT YOU WERE DOING WHILST YOU WERE FILMING THE FILM.

  • SO WHEN DID THEY KNOW?

  • WHAT DID THEY THINK WHEN THEY SAW THE FILM?

  • >> MY MOM -- MY MOM FaceTimeED ME AFTER SHE WATCHED THE MOVIE,

  • AND SHE WAS SO SAD.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) HER EYES WERE FULL OF TEARS.

  • SHE WAS CRYING FOR MAYBE TWO HOURS BECAUSE SHE'S KIND OF A

  • MASOCHIST, OBVIOUSLY, SHE WATCHED IT TWICE, AND SHE WAS

  • EVEN MORE SAD.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) SHE WAS, LIKE --

  • ( CRYING ) -- TUTAR -- IT'S SO SAD!

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> James: ONE OF THE MOST

  • TALKED ABOUT SCENES WAS YOUR INCIDENT WITH RUDY GIULIANI.

  • WHAT WAS IT LIKE FILMING THAT INTERVIEW?

  • >> NERVE RACKING.

  • MY HEART WAS RACING AND I WAS NERVOUS.

  • I WAS SCARED.

  • NOT SCARED SCARED BECAUSE SACHA WAS IN THE CLOSET, BUT --

  • >> James: FOR SURE.

  • AND WHEN SACHA OR BORAT BURSTS OUT AND WHEN HE'S DOING ALL

  • THOSE THINGS AND RUDY GIULIANI LEAVES, ARE YOU AND THE CREW,

  • LIKE, YEAH, GREAT, THAT'S GOOD, THAT'S HOW IT WORKS OUT.

  • IS THAT HOW IT WORKED OUT AT THE END OF A SHOOT DAY FOR ONE OF

  • THOSE SCENES?

  • >> RUDY GIULIANI DID ACTUALLY CALL THE POLICE, BUT WE DID

  • NOTHING ILLEGAL.

  • >> James: SURE.

  • SO WE LEFT THE PLACE TOGETHER, AND SO HOW WE CAN RUN

  • TOGETHER AND WE'RE HAPPY.

  • IT'S LIKE A FAMILY MOMENT.

  • >> James: SO WHEN YOU KNOW THAT HE'S CALLED -- WHEN YOU

  • KNOW THAT RUDY GIULIANI'S CALLED THE POLICE, DO YOU HAVE TO GET

  • OUT OF THERE QUITE QUICK?

  • >> YEAH.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> James: SO YOU'RE, LIKE,

  • HE'S CALLED THE POLICE AND HE'S PACKING UP ALL THE EQUIPMENT AND

  • YOU'RE IN A VAN AND YOU'RE GONE?

  • >> YEAH.
