Not everyone manages to find their life's work, and not always — sometimes it may take years. So our heroines first decided that they wanted to be models, but then fate itself brought them to the big screen.

6 famous Russian actresses who were once models

Svetlana Khodchenkova is the owner of luxurious hair, a toned figure and expressive facial features. In the past, the girl was a model, and got into this business completely by accident… At first, Sveta wanted to be a veterinarian, but realized that she was afraid of the sight of blood. Then she entered economics, from where she soon transferred because of the numbers and graphs that bored her.

At the Faculty of advertising, which the future celebrity chose for herself, she had to count and analyze no less. Therefore, when Sveta was offered to try herself as a model, she agreed without hesitation. Khodchenkova signed her first contract and worked in Japan for six months — that was enough time to understand that modeling was not for her.

After long attempts to find herself, constant shifts of universities and educational directions, Svetlana finally entered the Shchukin College and became an actress. Her screen debut took place in 2003 in the film "Bless the Woman".

Yulia Snigir also worked as a model before she got into show business. The actress recalls that she received $ 100 for her first photo shoot. At that time it was quite a lot of money, especially for a girl who has no experience in this field. The received fee prompted Yulia to seriously think about a career as a model, so she went to a casting in a large Moscow agency and successfully passed it.

After a while, Snigir was noticed by director Valery Todorovsky's assistant Tatiana Talkova. The woman offered the young beauty to audition for a role in the movie "Dudes". Unfortunately, Yulia did not pass the selection, but even then she realized that she wanted to change her type of activity. So Snigir entered the theater school and soon became an actress.

The ex-wife of the star of the "Major" Pavel Priluchny has been distinguished by good looks since childhood. During her school years, Agatha came to Germany through a student exchange program. There she was noticed by an employee of a modeling agency and offered to try her hand in this direction.

A casual encounter was the beginning of her successful modeling career, which lasted until 2007. It was then that the girl made her film debut, but her name became known to the general public much later, after the appearance of Agatha in the TV series "Closed School".

Evgenia Brik started her modeling career when she was only 5 years old. Then she worked as a model in the famous House of Models on Kuznetsky Most. After the shows, the young fashionista was allowed to keep some things for herself, so Zhenya was always the most stylish among her peers.

After growing up a little, Brick realized that she was no longer interested in a modeling career. Then the girl entered the theater academy and acquired all the necessary skills there in order to become a successful actress. And when Evgenia met her future husband, actor and director Valery Todorovsky, her modeling career finally faded into the background for her.

The main heroine of the melodrama Stanislava Govorukhina "Passenger" has been working as a model since she was 16. A girl with an expressive Slavic appearance was easily able to make her way to the podium and even managed to work with modeling agencies in Paris.

However, something did not work out for Anna in a foreign country, and she decided to return to Moscow. Here the beauty continued to work as a model, while studying at the Amedia Acting School. Almost immediately after graduation, Gorshkova received a role in the TV series "Poor Nastya", which brought her wide fame.

At a young age, the charming Anastasia Makeeva was interested in music. Her father was the head of a vocal and instrumental ensemble, so she performed with her dad on stage since childhood. Makeeva also studied at a music school, and then at the Rimsky-Korsakov Music College. In 2000 she entered the State Musical College of Pop and Jazz Art (GMUEDI), and in 2004 she graduated with honors.

At the same time, Anastasia was happy to work as a model and even participated in beauty contests. Makeeva starred for magazine covers, participated in commercials and was the face of the STS channel.

Her acting career, we can say, began in 2007. It was then that the girl with a red diploma graduated from RATI-GITIS. Makeeva's debut work in cinema was a small role in the film "The Lawyer", but it was enough for the talented actress to be noticed by the directors.
