Biography of Anna Taratorkina
The future celebrity was born on October 8, 1982 in the capital of the then Soviet Union - Moscow. Her father is Georgiy Georgievich Taratorkin, People's Artist of the USSR, and after Russia, and his mother Ekaterina Markina is a writer and actress. Anna has an older brother named Philip. It should be noted that in the family of Taratorkins, the children were especially coveted, because for medical reasons the births for Ekaterina Markina were very dangerous and could have the most negative impact on her health and on the health of the children. However, in the case of both babies, the woman deliberately took risks to feel the joy of motherhood, which she never regretted.
Biography of Anna Taratorkina (referring to her childhood) was strikingly different from that of other offspring of famous actors. So, neither mother nor father ever took their daughter with them to the theater. In addition, with children, the Taratorkins never talked about their work. This is because parents did not want Anna and Philip from the early years to open the back of acting. They were afraid that in this case the children would not be able to feel the magic of the theater. So, when five-year-old Anya accidentally heard that they are looking for a little girl for a role in the production of "The Bee", she began to ask her father about the opportunity to go through the samples. However, Georgi Georgievich then responded with a categorical refusal.
The first acquaintance with the cinema
Despite the reluctance of parents to see their little daughter on stage, she still had a role to play. Thus, at the age of nine, Anna Taratorkina appeared on the big screens in the painting "The Descent of Hell." In this tape, the young actress played the role of the governor's daughter, who is threatened by competitors. Since school years, Anya showed good abilities to learn languages, her parents saw her as a philologist rather than an actress. However, according to Taratorkina herself, she felt that if she did not try to enter a theater high school, she would feel sorry for all her life that she had not even made an attempt. Therefore, after graduation, the girl applied to the Shchepkin School. The choice for this educational institution fell due to the fact that Anna did not want to intersect with her famous father, who at that time was a teacher at VGIK.
During her studies at the university Anna realized that she was not mistaken with the chosen profession. She was happy to attend classes and put all the forces to learn the wisdom of such a difficult actor's skill. She graduated from the Schepkin School in 2004. Her thesis works included roles in such performances as "Three Sisters" (character Olga), "Nameless Star" (the character of Mona), "Storm" (the character of a half-crazy lady) and "Servant of two masters" (Beatrice character).

Borodin (Inga), "Tom Sawyer" directed by D. Cranny (Agnes), "Canterville cast" by A. Nazarov (Virginia), "Cinderella" About Zagumennova (Anna), "The Coast of Utopia" and others.

Nazarov - the role of Juliette).
