Parents were on tour, daughter stayed with her grandmother. Mother barely managed to get to them and take her father home. After the war, the family moved to Leningrad again.
From early childhood, the future of the child of an artistic couple was predetermined. Marina dreamed of the stage. However, the father strongly opposed this choice of his daughter. He did not approve of either the crazy pace of life, or all the difficulties in the acting field. And the character of Marina, in his opinion, was not suitable for an actress.
However, after school, the girl decided to get an artistic education and entered the theater school. Parents strongly objected to her decision. As a result, the disgruntled girl began work at the Svetlana electric lamp factory. She then went to Moscow, where she entered the Shchukin school.
