    Daria Jurgens (until the early 2000s Lesnikova) was born in Siberia in January 1968. But in the snowy Tomsk were only the early life of a future actress. But growing up Daria already at the warm sea of Azov: her childhood and youth were spent in Mariupol. This southern city actress likes today, considering his family.

    Daria’s parents served in local drama, and daughter often watched their work from behind the scenes. But she saw not only the festive atmosphere and armfuls of flowers from fans, but also all the difficulties of the craft, its «wrong side». Therefore, the daughter of two theatre actors dreamed about the scene and about the profession of a veterinarian.
