Honored Artist of the Russian Federation - Larisa Andreevna Kuznetsova, in her own words, is primarily a theater actress. However, in her filmography there are three dozen films and TV series that brought her universal fame. The general public fell in love with her for her roles in the films "Relatives" and "Five Evenings".
In her numerous interviews about her professional work, Larisa Kuznetsova constantly declares that it is preferable for her to play in ten performances than to hold out for one day on the set. It was the Mossovet Theater that immediately after the end of the legendary GITIS became her creative house, on the stage of which she still performs. It is noteworthy that this choice was made with the direct participation of Oleg Tabakov himself.
Brief biography of Larisa Kuznetsova
On August 25, 1959, the future theater and film actress was born in the capital of our Motherland. Despite the fact that the girl was brought up in a low-income family, her addiction to acting manifested itself especially strongly in the ninth grade of high school, when, having overcome a serious competition, she entered the theater studio, which was recruited by Konstantin Raikin.
It was here that she met Oleg Tabakov, who was one of her teachers. Larisa Kuznetsova carried her admiration for this great artist throughout her life. Studying in a theater studio confirmed the aspiring actress in the correctness of her choice, despite the fact that her parents were categorically against these activities, which inevitably affected the decline in academic performance in a comprehensive school.
After receiving a certificate of secondary education, the girl entered GITIS on the first attempt. By the way, she still considers her admission to the university to be one of the main victories in life, since she had to overcome the high competition there at the maximum of her creative abilities.
Creative career of an actress
Larisa Kuznetsova's cinematic debut took place when she was still a university student, with the assistance of Oleg Tabakov, who recommended her to Nikita Mikhalkov for the role in the film Five Evenings (1978). It was the role of Katya in this film project that immediately made her recognizable throughout the country.
After graduating from GITIS, the aspiring actress immediately actively plunged into the theatrical life of the Mossovet Theater, where, after a series of minor and minor roles, audience sympathy and recognition of the directors came. Among the many theatrical projects that have remained behind the Honored Artist of Russia today, one should especially highlight the images of Regan in King Lear, Masha in The Seagull, Nadia in Future Wanderers, Alice in the Black Midshipman and many others.
It is noteworthy that Larisa Kuznetsova at one time rejected the offer of her beloved mentor to go to "Snuffbox", prioritizing the Mossovet Theater, which she never regretted, since it was on these stages that she was able to achieve recognition of the entire Russian theater community. By the way, the actress has repeatedly rejected offers from directors to appear in various film projects during her long creative career because of her high employment in her native theater.
Since the Honored Artist of Russia does not want to disclose the details of her family life to the press, there is simply no thematic information in the public domain.
