Already in childhood Lapina demonstrated outstanding artistry. She sang beautifully and danced. But the girl from a simple working class family could only dream of a career artist.
Natalia Lapina at the insistence of his mother enrolled in College. After graduation, as parents wanted, went to work at the plant. But Natalia managed to get out of this «Bermuda triangle», as she called native Sormovo. She enrolled in theatre school.
A cinematic biography of Natalia Lapina began in 1986 and developed rapidly. In Nizhny Novgorod came from a group of «thumbnail» to remove the picture «the Life of Klim Samgin». The assistant Director looked at drama school, to find a girl for the role of Alina Telepneva. The choice fell on Lapino. Natalia went to Leningrad, where it was approved.

Then came two films that brought Lapina real popularity. She starred Evgeniya Ginzburg’s «the Isle of lost ships», where it took her great vocals. The result so impressed the Director that he immediately undertook the shooting of the second project – «the maid of Rouen nicknamed Doughnut,» where she got the main role.
