But the first attempt at her admission failed miserably: she was not accepted into any theatrical university in Moscow, and at the Shchukin school she was even advised to forget about the profession of an actress. But the girl was not inclined to deviate from her dreams and a year later she entered the drama studio at the Central Children's Theater.

When Irina Muravyova nevertheless read the script, she categorically did not like it. She was not attracted by the prospect of playing the role of a violent social activist in love with the first handsome man. According to the plot, as you know, Nadya Klyueva, following the recommendations of her friend, must consistently and systematically fall in love with Volodya Smirnov, the hero of Alexander Abdulov.

Galina Belinskaya told Irina Muravyova for a very long time about the advantages of the picture, and how the participation of the actress is personally important to her.

Fortunately, the husband of the actress Leonid Eidlin was present during the conversation. He listened for a very long time as the director of the picture brings more and more new arguments, and his wife easily parries them with just one phrase: "I don't like it!" Tired of this verbal confrontation, Leonid Eidlin suddenly supported Galina Belinskaya, saying very simply “Well, don't torture the girl! Don't ruin her life, take pictures! " Only after the words of her husband, Irina Muravyova nevertheless gave her consent to participate in the filming.
