Evgenia Igumnova is the star of the St. Petersburg theater scene. The audience immediately appreciated the images of women with a strong, strong-willed character created by the actress. Evgenia has achieved significant success in the cinema, although it is difficult to call most of the roles she played central. And in the complex art of dubbing, the St. Petersburg actress, in whose veins Chinese blood flows, managed to succeed no less.
From the biography of E. Igumnova
The future actress was born on the banks of the Neva on February 3, 1974. Zhenya's mother was a director of a tetra puppet, a talented actress. My father was also a creative person - he composed music. At some stage in life, a break occurred in the relationship between the parents, the family broke up. Eugenia's mother, as well as the girl's stepfather, worked with enthusiasm in the puppet theaters of Tyumen and Murmansk for some time. That is why the girl had no illusions about how the acting life works. This helped her make an informed professional choice.
Should I be surprised that Zhenya chose the fate of an actress for herself? In 1990 she went to study at the Institute of Theater, Music and Cinematography (Leningrad). She received her professional education diploma in 1994. And a year later, Evgenia Igumnova won the competition for young performers. Zhenya's reward was the coveted study in London. Here she comprehended the wisdom of the acting profession under the guidance of Mikhail Chekhov.
Then Evgenia worked as a TV presenter, as well as a journalist on the popular STO channel. Since 2006, Igumnova has been an Honored Artist of the Republic.
The actress chose the city of Pavlovsk as her place of residence. Evgenia Viktorovna is raising a son and daughter.
Creativity of Evgenia Igumnova
Even during his student days, Zhenya got a central role in the notable theatrical production of "Underdogs", which was a success with the public. The role played by Evgenia became the reason for her nomination for the Golden Soffit award. After such a brilliant performance, Igumnova was enrolled in the troupe of the Theater. Komissarzhevskaya.
Igumnova was nominated for the prestigious Golden Mask for her equally brilliant work in the production of The Tempest. Especially for Eugenia, director V. Pazi staged a play based on Japanese culture. The actress here had to comprehend a rather complex way of existing in two roles at once.
More than once Evgenia was offered roles by directors V. Smekhov, V. Grishko, A. Morfov, P. Shereshevsky. To date, she has performed more than three dozen roles on the stage of various theaters. Her work in the cinema sphere also became successful: Igumnova was noted for her magnificent roles in dozens of films, in television series. Evgenia Viktorovna also starred in joint Russian-American projects. Directors from other countries also drew attention to the imposing oriental appearance of the Russian beauty.
Another field for the creative activity of the talented actress was the scoring of films, as well as animation films. Fifty characters speak from the screen in her voice. One of Eugenia's notable works in this genre is the scoring of three parts of the saga about the pirates of the Caribbean, where the actress "helped" Kira Knightley to speak Russian.
