Inga Oboldina: filmography and personal life of the actress (photo)

There are many known cases when actors became directors, but on the contrary, only a few do it. Inga Oboldina is among them. Feeling like an actress while still studying at the directing department, she decided to change her life. I came to Moscow and entered the Fomenko Workshop, which I dreamed about a lot. And at the age of 44 she became a mother for the first time.

Currently, the actress has been awarded the “Honored Artist of Russia” award, and at first glance, everything goes easily and simply for her. But is this really so?

Biography of Inga Oboldina

It is said that people born into a difficult landscape are interesting individuals in their own right. The heroine of the article was born on December 23, 1968 in a wonderful place called Kyshtym. This wonderful city is called the Ural Switzerland, because within its boundaries there are five lakes and two mountains.

Her parents and Inga Oboldina herself believed in communism for a long time; the girl dreamed that she would come to the Detsky Mir store and be able to choose any of the toys that would be distributed there for free. Her younger sister also grew up in the family.

Inga organized Timur's detachments, which read poems to grandmothers (whether they wanted it or not), and acted out skits for village women. In a word, the future actress was a leader and a tomboy. The director's nature, apparently, has been ingrained in her since childhood.

My parents did not belong to the world of Melpomene; my father served in the city executive committee, and my mother worked as deputy director of a radio-mechanical technical school. Nevertheless, their family holidays were held with imagination and resembled theatrical meetings. Mom wrote scripts specifically for this, but Inga’s love for stage and cinema manifested itself thanks to her aunt, who was the director of the only cinema in the city.

Higher educational institutions in the life of an actress

After graduating from school, Inga Oboldina went to Chelyabinsk to enter the Institute of Culture at the directing department.

At that time, Viktor Del, a student of Georgy Tovstonogov, taught there. Fascinated by acting, after studying Oboldina went to conquer the capital and entered the Moscow Art Theater School, from there she moved to GITIS to Pyotr Fomenko.

The actress likes to say that her two favorite teachers gave her mathematics (Victor Del) and watercolor (Pyotr Fomenko) as a profession. Thanks to Del, Inga was able to understand Fomenko. The Chelyabinsk teacher, adhering to the St. Petersburg school, introduced the students to the architectonics of the play, which they themselves analyzed, building a sequence of events, and Pyotr Naumovich gave the students lightness, flair and the ability not to bother their heads with nonsense.

The first production for Inga Petrovna was “The Sakhalin Wife”, based on the play by Elena Gremina. The author dedicated the work to Chekhov and Sakhalin. Oboldina got the role of a monstrous old woman. The premiere took place in November 1996 on the stage of the new theater “StrelkovTheater”, which was directed by the actress’s husband Harold Strelkov.

Personal life of Inga Oboldina

She met Harold Strelkov while still studying in Chelyabinsk. Together they decided to move to the capital and also entered the Fomenko Workshop together. In Moscow they created their own theater, in which Inga played many roles. The actress still considers Strelkov the best director, and views her marriage rather as a union of classmates, which can be compared to a camping trip.

They parted ways quietly, like intellectuals, although for fifteen years before that, Inga had signed herself with the double surname of Oboldin-Strelkov.

And although Inga Oboldina does not like to be in the spotlight of the press, she still made it to the front pages after she gave birth to a child at the age of 43. The daughter's father turned out to be Vitaly Saltykov, an actor from St. Petersburg. The girl was named Clara.

For the first time she saw Vitaly in the play “PRO Turandot” in the northern capital. Saltykov turned out to be a master of improvisation, a musician and a director at the same time. The young actress wanted to play with him so much that she immediately announced it. As it turned out, Saltykov had an independent character and left Alexandriyka because he decided to play what he personally liked. But the tandem with Inga interested him. They are still together and never get tired of each other. According to the actress herself, she is incredibly interested in being next to a person who knows a hundred times more than her and from whom she can learn something.

Creative path

After school, she went to Chelyabinsk and became a student at the Institute of Culture, choosing the specialty “directing mass events and performances.” According to her, thanks to the talented teachers of this university, she mastered the “mathematics of the profession.” The excellent graduate was left at her alma mater, and for two years she was a teacher of rhetoric and stage speech.

Inga Oboldina in her youth

In 1991, following her then husband, Harold Strelkov, she went to Moscow, the “epicenter of creativity.” At first, life in the capital seemed like hell to her - crazy rhythm, large crowds of people, lack of money. There was a period when she had to sell things and her gold jewelry to survive. Over time, she got a job at a boarding school and later worked as a cleaner.

Inga Oboldina studied acting from Lev Durov and Pyotr Fomenko

Despite the difficulties, the Ural resident was not going to give up the stage. She took the course of Lev Durov at the Moscow Art Theater, having passed a competition of 600 people per place, and in 1993 she moved to the legendary Pyotr Fomenko at GITIS, where her husband studied, having passed a huge competition of 600 people per place. She called the next 4 years of studying with the great master “sheer happiness,” when every lesson and every word provided a unique chance to develop professional skills in the right direction. In parallel with her studies, the actress worked part-time in a boarding school for orphans and helped its students get settled in life.

The hardworking and gifted artist managed to star in four to six projects simultaneously, remaining bright and organic in different roles. For example, in the series “She-Wolf” she appeared in the image of the powerful and independent mistress of Lydia’s life, but in “Lenin’s Testament”, released in 2007, she embodied the defenseless literary worker Zoya, lost in love.

In the 2013 television series Mom Detective, she played a female investigator who continued to find and neutralize criminals in the last months of pregnancy. In the Spanish film, on the basis of which the domestic version was created, the heroine was not pregnant. This version of events happened due to the fact that Oboldina actually found herself in a situation.

From the actress’s filmography, the musical drama film “Burn!” should also be mentioned. Kirill Pletnev, whose script he wrote especially for her. They met while filming together in the TV series “Mom Detective”. When, calling Oboldina at night, he said that he had written a script for her, she thought that it would be a beautiful love story. Therefore, after getting acquainted with the plot about the “fat-assed woman with a stick,” she even burst into tears, but agreed to play “with resistance.” As a result, she received the “Kinotavr-2017” award for her impeccable embodiment of the image of the singing security guard. Moreover, she performed the composition “Antique Clock” in the frame herself.

Mom detective

Inga Oboldina, whose photo can be seen in this article, is currently rightfully considered one of the talented actresses. She works hard and loves her profession; even pregnancy did not stop her from playing the role of a detective mother in the film of the same name by Mikhail Weinberg. Police Lieutenant Colonel Larisa Levina loves her family very much, but cannot imagine herself outside of work. The investigation itself brings her pleasure. She is a gambling person, but not crazy, rather too spontaneous, but at the same time she behaves correctly with criminals.

This is the first time the actress has played such a role. She had to authentically portray the image of a pregnant female detective who has to catch bandits, raise two tomboyish boys and, as it turns out, live on the verge of divorce.

The plot of the film directed by Kirill Pletnev is based on real events. This is a poignant picture that talks about human relationships.
