With great regret, I have to admit that the namethis remarkable actress is known to a narrow circle of persons, first of all to the spectators of the old generation. Alexandra Kolkunova was born and grew up in the Soviet Union. She could not choose another profession: her parents were also actors. Several well-known paintings made her a favorite of the public. But the new generation is not familiar with the work of Alexandra. So who is this and what did Alexandra Kolkunova remember, an actress who left her favorite profession for the sake of family well-being?
The native of Moscow Alexander was born on November, 10th1969. Elena Kairanskaya-Alexandrova and Mikhail Kolkunov were not well-known movie actors, but they were shining on the stages of many metropolitan theaters. It is not surprising that the parents gave their daughter a love of acting, and Alexander Kolkunov happily followed in their footsteps.
The first appearance on the screen took place when shewas sixteen years old. The family drama "Dancing on the Roof" told of a teenager Victor, aimlessly spending his vacations. He gets acquainted with the worker Boris and decides to enter the vocational school to acquire a standing profession ... And although Alexandra got a small role, this experience had a beneficial effect on her: Kolkunova decided to continue her acting career.
Tapes "Men's portraits" and "Remember me this"have gained spectator recognition. Still, they starred such stars as Elena Proklova, Iya Savvina, Oleg Borisov, Vera Mayorova, Pavel Belozerov. Kolkunova again has episodic roles, and she, looking at her older colleagues, is increasingly immersed in the atmosphere of the cinema. But in the next film, the historical drama "Baybars", Alexandra was given the main role - slave Shadiyar. The painting carries the audience in the XIII century, during the reign of the Egyptian sultan Baybars.
After this picture on the actress pay attentionother directors. Alexandra Kolkunova receives an offer from Zinovy Roizman and agrees to shoot in a criminal detective "The Code of Silence." Next comes "Corruption" and mini-series "The World in Another Dimension." The historical melodrama "The Funeral of Stalin" collects mainly positive reviews of critics. In it, Alexander gets the role of a neighbor in a communal apartment.
Which actress does not dream of getting into the ranks of the firststars, and not to stay in secondary places? The exception was not and Alexander Kolkunov. In the action movie "Fan-2" and comedy melodrama "Night Fun" she played the main roles, after which she acquired the long-awaited status. This role is reinforced by the crime comedy "The Thieves of Water".
The most significant and well-known role the actress played inthe historical fighter "Ermak". Valery Uskov and Vladimir Krasnopolsky entrusted her with the role of Farida, the bride of Ivan Koltsov performed by Nikita Dzhigurdy. To this day, this work remains the most beloved and recognized audience. Alexander Kolkunov also got the opportunity to be on the same set with venerable screen stars: Victor Stepanov, Mikhail Zhigalov, Irina Alferova, Evgeny Evstigneev.
In the same year (1996), the drama "Aromadesires "produced by Turkmenistan. Kolkunova was almost the only Russian actress, engaged in this film. For Russia, the picture went unnoticed.
To leave the profession, Kolkunova decided onown desire. She could have a lot of bright roles, but now she does not regret anything. In the second half of the 90's, she married an American, moved to his homeland. After the marriage with him, Alexandra twice got married. She has three daughters.
Leaving her acting class, she began to studymagic. Now Alexandra Kolkunova is a practicing magician-psychic who participates in healing sessions and various programs in America and Canada. In addition, she publishes her research and notes in many journals. In the Russian capital comes infrequently, but also plans to open his magical salon here.
