Yes and dance the girl could, so from childhood he attended the school of sport dance and ballet Studio. And still have time to engage in artistic gymnastics and acrobatics.

    When Joan turned 12, she had her sister Natalia. When a younger sister grew up, girls become real friends. The parents brought up their daughters in severity.

    After the end of the 406-th school in the Metropolitan area Perovo Zhanna Kopylova became a student of Moscow University for the Humanities. She chose the faculty of journalism. But in the third year realized that she is not interesting. Therefore, without regret, left the University and went to look for their place under the sun.

    In search of work, Jeanne took a job as a sales Manager of office furniture in one of the capital firms. Later began teaching choreography at the sports Palace.

    The «Brilliant»

    According to one version of the group «Brilliant» Zhanna came through acquaintance with Olga Orlova in 1995. According to another version – Kopylov was invited by the producer Andrei Gromov in 1996. He knew that the girl is professionally engaged in choreography and in the group at that time was in need of a consultant.

    After several rehearsals, the producer realized that Jeanne excellent «fit» in the team «sparkly». Bright appearance, ability to move, a pleasant voice – it had everything we needed for a career as a singer. The girl took a stage name Zhanna Friske and in may 1997 became the fourth member of the pop project «Brilliant». At that time in the girl band have already worked Olga Orlova, Polina, Iodis and barbarian Queen. Soon one of the «sequin» – Barbara left the group. In its place came Irina Lukyanov.

    We cannot say that the father of Jeanne Friske was delighted with the daughter’s decision to become a singer and to lead a life on the road. But seeing the rousing success of the Quartet and the rapidly growing popularity of girls, he realized that the eldest daughter found her way.

The huge success of the art «sparkly» prompted the producer but rather to record new covers. Soon there was an album «About love», «four sea» and «Orange Paradise». Latest album – a collection of songs written in a popular Soviet song.

    It is noteworthy that the «Orange Paradise» Zhanna Friske recorded with a fully upgraded team. Former participants replaced Kseniya Novikova, Anna Semenovich and Julia Kovalchuk. After the release of this album biography of Zhanna Friske made a sharp turn: the singer realized that «evolved» a girl band and «ripe» for a solo career. At that time the name of the star was known to all.

    Solo career

    In autumn 2005, Zhanna Friske gave his fans his debut solo album, which was given the name «Jeanne». Some of the album’s songs became hits and landed on the top of the rotation on radio and music channels. On the song «La La La», «Flying in the dark» and «somewhere in summer» appeared clips.

    In total, the album includes 9 original songs along with 4 remixes.

    Unfortunately, the first disc was the last, although Zhanna Friske is not going to complete the vocal career. After the release of the album she recorded 17 new singles, some of them together with other known peers. For example, the track «raspberries» Friske released together with the guys from «Disco Crash», «Western» Tanya Tereshinoy, Djigan she sang the hit «You’re next», and Dmitry Malikov, the song «Softly falling snow».

    Latest hit Zhanna Friske called «Love wanted» was released shortly before her death in 2015. Maturity, professionalism, brilliance and sexuality is characterized as music critics of the last song of the stars.


    In the diversity of talent and innate artistry of Jeanne Friske her fans are convinced after participation stars in several popular television shows and appearances in the film.

    In 2003, Friske took part in the 4th season of the reality show «Last hero». For several months the artist spent in star-studded company on a deserted island of South America. The conditions of survival were, without exaggeration, harsh. Dangerous to life and health issues was enough. For example, Nikolai Drozdov was inadvertently poisoned by other project participants poisonous frogs. Drozdov was sure that after removing the skins, the meat of the frogs is not dangerous.

    Later Zhanna Friske was previously unknown to her allergies. As it turned out, the woman’s body reacted to some exotic plants.

    However, the party bravely reached the final, although they lost leadership position to Yana Volkova. Viewers who watched the behavior of the stars in the unusual, not greenhouse conditions, were amazed and enthusiastic personal qualities of Zhanna Friske. The singer-behaved, showed a Royal restraint, calm and always a good attitude to my colleagues.

    After returning to the capital Zhanna Friske, inspired by new experiences and gained invaluable knowledge about the previously unknown life made the final decision not to return to the group «Brilliant». She could feel the strength on a solo flight.

    In the 2000s, the star was invited in various TV projects. Zhanna Friske participated in the show «Heart of Africa», «Empire», «Circus with the stars» and «Circus».

    In 2008, she took part in the second season of the popular show «Ice age». At first she skated with Vitali Novikov, and then her partner was Maxim Marinin.

    After 3 years, in 2011, Zhanna Friske led the reality show «Vacation in Mexico». But the heavy workload has forced the artist to abandon the work in the second season, passing the baton Alena Vodonaevoy.


    In addition to his solo career, the singer tried his hand as an actress and TV presenter. In 2004, audiences saw a blockbuster Timur Bekmambetov’s «Night watch». Zhanna Friske got a way of charming and freedom-loving singer Alice Donnikova. In this way, many fans learned of the star itself. But Donnikova was not only a singer, but also a dark witch, capable of deceit.

    Successful acting debut was inspired by Zhanna Friske on the continuation of film career. In 2005 the artist gave consent to participate in the continuing Saga of the confrontation of light and dark forces. This time her character got more screen time. The audience enthusiastically watched the unfolding on screen love story. Alice Donnikova had to make a choice between the character of Victor Verzhbitsky – the dark Lord by the name of Zabulon, and romantic young vampire Bones, who brilliantly embodied on the screen Aleksey Chadov.

    For his work in «Day watch» Zhanna Friske was awarded the MTV award in the category «Best female role».

    4 years later, in 2010, the actress once again appeared on the screen. This time in the psychological drama Klim shypenko «Who am I?» Unfortunately, the film did not have the same success as the previous blockbusters. But the Comedy in the genre of the road movie is Dmitry Dyachenko called «what men talk About» gathered in the domestic box office of nearly $ 12 million.

    I liked the film as spectators and critics, who generously showered» Comedy laudatory reviews. Zhanna Friske appeared in this project in the role of herself. Her cameo turned out with a fair amount of self-irony. A nice men’s company «the Quartet And» Leonid Baraza, Aleksandr Demidov, Rostislav Khait and Kamil Larin only emphasized the feminine charm of the actress.

    All three films in which he appeared Zhanna Friske in cameo roles – the «First ambulance», «Beauty requires» and «Christmas matchmakers». In 2013, the latest film project actress called. «Classmates.Gee: naCLICKay luck.» Her filmography includes more than a dozen works.

    Friske was one of the few stars who managed to overcome the stereotype that accompanies most of her colleagues. After participating in the TV movie Joan perceived not as a singer but as an artist in the broadest sense of the word. She was self-sufficient TV star, was able to realize themselves equally well in all forms.

    It is noteworthy that Zhanna Friske was not afraid to break the stereotypes associated with her persona. For example, in «Last hero», she went for something so feared by many of her colleagues: the star allowed to remove themselves without makeup, in the most unfavorable angles. And in the Comedy «what men talk About» it with ease and subtle irony to laugh at the current reputation as a sex symbol and fatal beauty. As later admitted critic Boris Barabanov, Friske showed «the degree of intelligence and self-irony, the feared men in women».

    Personal life

    Zhanna Friske was the object of desire of thousands of men. Army fans sexy Babes has grown rapidly. About my personal life the stars were a lot of rumors and gossip. She attributed novels with the leader of «dirty rotten scoundrels» Sergey Amoralov, the soloist of group «Hi-Fi» Mitya Fomin. Gossiping about the relationship of the singer with the main macho of the Russian show-business by Dmitry Nagiyev. But no proof or evidence of this «novel» was not.

    And yet the ubiquitous paparazzi dug out some information about the personal life of Jeanne Friske. Early in his career, the singer met with the well-known Moscow businessman Ilya Mitelman. He has sponsored several projects. There were rumors about the forthcoming wedding of this couple. But for some unknown reason the case to wedding dress never came.
