    Iya Savvina: biography

    People’s artist of the Soviet Union, the winner of many awards Iya Savvina was brought up in a family where the women finished four classes of the Church school, don’t really know how to read and write. She was born March 2, 1936, in Voronezh. Mother and II went to study already an adult, very shy about it: after the technical school he enrolled in medical school, from which he graduated and was the only doctor for a few surrounding villages. About father Sawin, little is known. Parents divorced before the war. Then the mother of the future actress got married the second time in the military. Began the endless moving from place to place.

    Frequent moves not prevented are compared to a gold medal in school. She wanted to enter the philological faculty of Moscow state University – from childhood he loved literature and wanted to teach children, but only in Moscow. The girl was late – the reception of medallists of the faculty of Philology has already expired, so I applied for the faculty of journalism of Moscow state University. At one place in the University claimed 13 medals — Ia gone. She was happy, but never forgot his theatrical capture. Savva came to MSU student theatre.

    Theater education she had, but the theatre was a tremendous experience that will be valuable in his future career. In 1958, Iya Savvina graduated from the journalism faculty and has successfully combined journalism with an acting profession.


    Her theatrical career began in the years of study at MSU. She played a directed by Rolan Bykov «This love», but told from the stage so quietly that she did not hear the audience in the front row. After the performance the Director told her that the artist needed message to the audience — this phrase I will remember for a lifetime.

    In 1960 she was invited to Mossovet Theatre. She played on stage with major actors of the time: Lyubov Orlova, Faina Ranevskaya, Vera Maretskaya. Her debut in the title role in the play «Nora» was successful. Lyubov Orlova Sawin sent a basket of flowers. In the Mossovet Theatre she played other notable roles: Sonia Marmeladov in «Petersburg dreams», Masha in «Leningrad prospect», referring to «the curious savage».

    In 1977, Efremov, invited the actress in the Moscow art theatre, where she worked for many years. For the first time on the stage of Mat Iya Savvina appeared as Maria Lvovna in the play «summer residents». Then there were a lot of diverse roles. For the performance «Christmas dreams» actress has received a prestigious award «crystal Turandot».


    Her film career began with the lead role in the film «the lady with the dog». The Director searched for the actress, and listened to the advice of Alexei Batalov, who saw Savin in one of the productions of the student theatre and was struck by her game. After showing a picture of Iya Savvina received an approving letter from Faina Ranevskaya.

    Then there was the role in the drama «the Sinner», «the bell is Ringing open the door», «C», «Ionice». But the special, the actress considered the role of ASI Clacine in the movie «Asino happiness» by Andrei Konchalovsky. The Director did not want to take Savin, said that he needs a country girl. Savvina and she doubted that she gets to play with ordinary people, because the majority of performers were villagers and farm workers. The shooting ended in 1967, but twenty years the film lay on the shelf.

    In the 60-70 in AI Sawin had a lot of classical roles. She starred in the movie «Face – big love Chekhov», where she played the sister of the writer. The film tells about the history of the famous play «the Seagull.» In 1973, the screens out the series «the Investigation leading Experts», where Savva played Maya Bagrovo. No less convincing was she in the role of the trauma surgeon in the film «Every day the doctor Kalinychevoy». In 1975 she starred in the film «the Diary of a school Director».

    In the ‘ 80s in the work of Sawin had to decline — she starred in nine films. In the 1990s and 2000s, the actress continued acting, but her role was not important — more episodes or the role of the second plan. In 2003, the audience saw UW Savin in avant-garde drama directed by Kirill Serebrennikov «Bed scene», where she played the mother of one of the main characters.

    The last work of the actress became the role in the film «can You hear me?», Listening to silence, «a place in the sun» and «List of lovers of the Russian Federation».

    The trouble has come, whence did not wait. In the second born son with a diagnosis of «down syndrome».
