Ekaterina Volkova is one of the favorite Russian actress. Mainly in her biography there are series and sitcoms, but in them she creates the most convincing images, due to which she fell in love with the domestic public.
Ekaterina Volkova is an actress whose screen images are familiar to many. After all, she is a performer of one of the main roles in the Voronin's beloved series. Therefore, her work does not go unnoticed.
Childhood of the artist
The countdown of Katya Volkova's biography began in 1982, when she was born in Tallinn. Volkova celebrates her birthday on January 15. Catherine's family was not creative and famous: her father is a businessman with a name, mother is a housewife. At the same time, the girl's grandmother influenced the views and future choice of profession. The woman worked as a teacher in a kindergarten, and therefore was an enthusiastic nature, creative and able to handle children. Catherine herself, having matured, admits that it was her grandmother who had the greatest influence on her, and her advice and recommendations allowed the girl to achieve certain success in her career.
From early childhood, different talents could be discerned in the girl. Aunt Katya worked in a hairdressing salon, and she often went there. It was here that the first admirers of her talent appeared. the girl, coming here, sang, danced, recited poetry. Despite the fact that the visitors to the barbershop almost in a voice said that she should be an artist, Ekaterina thought about her future profession only when she was finishing school. It was then that she decided to continue her education at the theater school.
The girl's parents, as noted, were not against, however, 1005, but did not approve of such an idea. Yet deep down, they wanted her to have a more reliable profession. However, the talent could not be hidden and not buried, so the girl was gladly accepted into the Schepkinsky school. She graduated from it in 2003 with honors. But, however, a red diploma, even of such a prestigious educational institution, did not immediately open a bright and triumphant path to the profession for her.
Catherine decided to go the other way - not to try to storm the unattainable heights right away, but to try to enter from a simpler and less pretentious stage. And it played a good service to her. She got her first job at the State Film Actor Theater. At that time, her film career did not work out - she was not taken to the sites. It all ended mainly in episodes.
In parallel, she still received a more serious education - a financier-economist.

Moreover, this role did not go to her on a silver platter. At the casting, the young actress had to show all her perseverance and perseverance. She got the role of Vera only on the third attempt. And, as can be noted, it was the right choice. After the first casting, there was a complete failure - she was not even remembered. At the second casting, she was able to pull herself together and show herself, but the producers doubted her because of her too young age. But for the third time she was lucky, and she bypassed five actresses at once, who also claimed the role of Vera.
