Natalya Kustinskaya (Natalya Kustinskaya)

Natalya Kustinskaya

Actress. A pretty blonde, she will probably be best remembered as a sex kitten from several Soviet comedies of the 1960s. The child of a show business family, she was raised within the theatrical milieu, studied piano at the Gnessin Music School, and trained at the State Institute of Cinematography prior to her silver screen bow in 1959’s “Gloomy Morning”. After a few small roles Natalya achieved star-status with the 1963 “Three Plus Two”, was seen in “Royal Regatta” (1966), and in 1973 had possibly her best known part in “Ivan Vasilievich: Back to the Future”. From 1973 thru 1983 she was Pauline in the popular television series “Eternal Call”; retiring after 1989’s “Svetik”, she was designated Meritorius Artist of Russia in 1999. Natalya’s personal life was bleak with about half a dozen marriages, the third to Cosmonaut Dr. Boris Yegorov, the 2002 loss of her only son, and an accumulation of health problems. She lived out her days on a small pension and died of pneumonia. some of her performances are preserved on DVD. (bio by: Bob Hufford)  Family links:  Spouse:  Boris Borisovich Yegorov (1937 – 1994)
