    Nina Urgant was born in September 1929 in the town of Luga in Leningrad region. This settlement was near the Estonian border, which causes a large number of the Estonian population. Dad future actress Nicholas Urgant also had Estonian origins, which confirms the name Urgant. Father was in the military, so the family moved from place to place very often.

    The great Patriotic war began, when we lived Urganta in the Latvian Daugavpils. They managed to survive thanks to the working mom: she worked in a bakery. Nina at the time was only 11 years old. Enough to well remember the war for life.

    After declaring Victory Urganta moved to Leningrad. In this town, where every house breathes history, where many museums and theatres, Nina Urgant became seriously interested in the stage. With her she decided to link their future life.

    After school, Nina had applied to the Academy of theatre arts (then the theatrical Institute named after Nikolai Ostrovsky). Girl not really counted on your hand, so just in case I applied to several universities. But fate would have it, Nina Urgant came on the scene.

    A cinematic biography of Nina Urgant was launched in the same 1954, when she returned from Yaroslavl to Leningrad. She was offered a prominent role in the film «tiger tamer». The actress has played brilliantly. But the character, played by Nina Nikolaevna, was negative. Therefore, the «negative image» for a long time stuck to the artist. The result was a 7-year break in his film career. At this time, the stars appeared only on stage.

    But in the 1970s, Nina Urgant compensated forced «simple».
