Gifts and lessons from the fate of Oksana Akinshina: What role did the actor Sergei Bodrov and musician Sergei Shnurov play in the life of the actress

On April 19, actress Oksana Akinshina celebrated her 34th birthday. In her years, she is a successful and sought-after actress, who has already played about 40 roles in films, and her personal life is as stormy and impetuous as her film career: she became a mother of three children, and her marriages and novels with the most famous artists do not get tired of discussing in the media. There were two significant meetings in her life - with the actor and director Sergei Bodrov Jr. and the musician Sergei Shnurov, which became for her both a gift of fate and a test that hardened her character.

Oksana Akinshina was in love with Sergei Bodrov since the age of 11, when the film "Brother" was released, which became a cult for the youth of the 1990s. Then the girl could not even dream that in just 3 years she would meet her idol on the set. Oksana did not think about her acting career at that time - she was engaged in choreography and took her first steps in the modeling business. Once the director of a modeling agency sent her for audition to Sergei Bodrov Jr., who decided to try his hand as a director in the film "Sisters".

The search for the two young protagonists of the film continued for a long time, every day 300 people came to the casting, and Bodrov still could not make a choice. Many girls, putting on the most elegant dresses, tried very hard to please the director, but that was exactly what repelled him. Oksana was very different from them - she seemed cold, unfriendly, wayward and intractable, but it was just such a heroine that Bodrov was looking for. So Akinshina got her first film role, which made her famous throughout the country. This work became the springboard for her successful acting career, she called Sergei Bodrov her godfather in the cinema, thanks to which other directors drew attention to her.
