Actress Olga Budina admitted that she is very shy.
Not so long ago, the actress practically stopped acting in films, believing that there is nothing good in modern cinema, sheer commerce and profit. True, the artist remains faithful to one TV project so far: the new season of the Zemsky Doctor series will soon be released on the screens.
Olga admits that recently she has fallen in love with ordinary life and does not want to return her former popularity.
“My life is unconventional. It is different from the life of those actors who play everything, regardless of ideology. When I stopped understanding what was happening, I quietly left the radar. It was about 10 years ago. Of course, now I don’t have that degree of popularity anymore, when you can’t calmly go to the store – everyone looks around.
But there are some goodies: now I can afford to live like an ordinary person and not wear sunglasses in winter and summer. Although the 6th season of Zemsky Doctor should be released in the fall, and I think that soon I will have to wear them again. I love people, but I am very shy and suspicious by nature.”, the 47-year-old actress opened up.
Budina loves her profession, but sees no reason to work, because everything that happens in the cinema brings her disappointment.
“The first time I left in connection with the birth of a child, in 2004. And eight years later, I became disillusioned with the paradigm of our cultural policy. I found the old teachers of the Vakhtangov school who taught their students to love art in themselves, and not vice versa. And love the Motherland as it is, and not be ashamed of it at European festivals. I realized that in order to survive, I just need to leave. Having bowed from the waist to all my colleagues, I refused to renew contracts, played all the performances announced, completed the season of TV programs, starred in all the films and went nowhere and not understanding what to do next. It’s better to do nothing than something you never want to show your kids.“, – said the star of the “Taiga novel”.
Now the actress is engaged in politics, but is not eager to go to power. “I have a different battlefield and a different profession in my hands. In the fall, I shot two videos about the essence of the law on domestic violence, which, if passed, would have opened wide the doors to our juvenile justice families and would never really protect against real domestic violence. So this law has been demolished. And I am very glad that I was able to contribute along with the numerous parent communities that have been pushing for its demolition for many years.”, she said in an interview with Interlocutor.
