Katerina Muratkina, a 22-year-old model from Kazan, Russia, will be leading the campaign for Rock Me Again 2011. Represented in South Africa by M1 Management, she arrived in Cape Town just over two months ago. Capsule Projects met her for a cup of tea, during which time she chatted about music, film, and forensic labs.

Mom… and Mom’s food! She’s a very good cook.
How do you relax in Cape Town?
I like to look at the sea and inhale the sea air.

In May 2011 I saw Muse at the Olympiski Arena in Moskow. I was in the first row, amazing!
