Birthday of Marina Neyolova

On January 8, 1947, the remarkable Soviet and Russian Theater and Film Actress Marina Neyolova was born.

Autumn Marathon. 1979. Director Georgiy Daneliya. Movie's Rating - 8,892. 191st Rank in the Golden Thousand.

Till some moment Marina Neyolova was perceived by me and people surrounding me as some kind of little-travesty, in the best way approaching for roles in children's films. Such perceptions have contributed to her roles in films-fairy tales (A Very Old Story; Shadow; The Twelfth Night, or the grand daughter in Monologue), and her manner to speak a voice of the little girl. But in 1979, the little Princess turned into a beautiful Queen. I mean her role in Autumn Marathon (also known as A Sad Comedy). We have seen the beautiful, sexual, seductive girl for whom, dripping saliva on the run, someone will run on the world's end. Not without reason, after all, one of the most outstanding experts on female beauty - Slava Zaitsev - said that Marina «is weaved from sex». How we then envied one our fellow student who at that time had a romance with Marina! At least he told us so. And after a while we secretly gloated over, when at he was beaten off by the Great Chess player.

A Very Old Story. 1968. Director Nadezhda Kosheverova. Movie's Rating - 8,060. 633rd Rank in the Golden Thousand.

Since 1968, Marina Neyolova starred in 22 feature-length feature films (except for simply transferred to the film performances of the Sovremennik Theater). Of these 22 films, 3 films are included in the Golden Thousand.

The Barber of Siberia. 1998. Director Nikita Mikhalkov. Movie's Rating - 7,882. 871st Rank in the Golden Thousand.
