Russian actress Larisa Guzeeva was born May 23, 1959 in the village of Burtinskaya, Orenburg region. Larisa Guzeeva does not like to recall her childhood: “Too many forbidden things”. Her own father did not see her – a girl was raised by her mother and a stepfather. Larisa’s stepfather did not allow her to watch films with kisses on TV. Mom taught history at the same school where she studied. Larisa strongly opposed dogmas, wore short skirts, used make-up, smoked, trying to attract attention at any cost. And after the tenth grade, at age seventeen, Larisa went to Leningrad and entered the Leningrad State Institute of Theatre, Music and Cinema.

To a movie set, she came in cutoff jeans, and sandals with multicolored nails, smoked “Belomor” and spat through her teeth. “I did not have anything to do with my future heroine. No tragedy of suffering and love I was familiar with at my 23. I had a high opinion of herself. To depict the suffering on the screen helped me my partners, especially Nikita Mikhalkov”.
