    To become an actress Lucien Ovchinnikov dreamed of since childhood. But her inherent shyness had made those ghostly dreams. At school she was unable to prepare for admission to College theater.

The Director had to convince a young actress, it’s her role.

    Colleagues of the actress have said that modesty and directness Luciani Ovchinnikova great interfered with her career. She didn’t know how to «knock out» the role and establish useful contacts. Therefore, only played wherever it was invited.
