Olga Aleksandrovna Sutulova (born May 4, 1980, Leningrad) - Russian theater and film actress.
Olga was born into a family of mathematicians and engineers, but did not follow in the footsteps of her parents. From the age of 5, she studied English, then she entered school with in-depth study of English. At age 14, she went to Oxford for several months under a student exchange program. But she did not have a relationship with teachers and classmates at the Oxford school. As Olga herself stated, at that time she was a hooligan, she did not succeed at school and eventually she was expelled from school. Without thinking twice, Olga went to vocational school with the shipping company, passed all the exams there perfectly, but Olga's parents did not come to terms with the fact that their daughter would become a locksmith technician, and after a while she enrolled her in the Alexander II gymnasium in Peterhof. At the age of 15 at the birthday of a common acquaintance, where Olga came with her parents, she met with the playwright of the director Dmitry Astrakhan - Oleg Danilov and soon starred in the television series "Waiting Room".
After graduating from high school, Olga entered the university at the Faculty of History. Studying there with Olga did not work out. After the failure of the exams, Olga entered VGIK.
She graduated from the acting faculty of VGIK (workshop of Joseph Reichelgauz).
Her husband is an actor Evgeny Stychkin, while there are no children in marriage. They met on the set of “Love Contract”, when the actor was still married to Ekaterina Scanavi, and they began an affair. Since 2007, the actor lived in two families. In 2009, Evgeny Stychkin divorced Catherine, but for a long time did not dare to enter into the next marriage. In 2012, Eugene and Olga got married.
The person thanks to whom Olga Sutulova first appeared on the set was the playwright Oleg Danilov. With him, a 15-year-old schoolgirl met by chance at the birthday of a family friend. It was Oleg who invited the girl to the television project "Waiting Room", which was shot by Dmitry Astrakhan. The beginning actress got the role of Sveta Ponomareva, a pupil of the orphanage. Director Sutulova liked, so in 1998 he again invited her to his tape. It was a criminal action movie "Contract with death."
In the period from 2001 to 2004, Olga played in dozens of films and TV shows. One of her most striking works is the role of Dasha in Valery Akhadov’s drama "Elegy of Moscow Region", a film adaptation of the play of the same name by Mikhail Kozakov. In this clever, deep picture devoted to the problem of fathers and children, stars of our cinema Mikhail Ulyanov, Ada Rogovtseva and Irina Kupchenko starred.
The heroines of Sutulova during this period were: actress Asya in the tragicomedy "Cinema about a movie", Lena in a detective story "Backstage", Nastya in the TV series "Atlantis", Katya in the historical melodrama "Northern Sphinx", doctor Marina in "Urgent", Tanya in the action film "Cobra. Anti-terror", Selina in the serial detective "Dasha Vasilyeva. A lover of private investigation -1", editor-in-chief Yulia Belkina in the comedy "Formula", Lika in the melodrama "Night of the Light".
In 2007, the actress was invited to the main role of police sergeant Nina Tsvetkova in the picture of Alexander Buravsky “Leningrad”, which tells about the tragic period of the blockade during the Great Patriotic War. Olga Sutulova says that the work on the image was not easy for her: “We didn’t completely match her character. The times were difficult, and she tried to kill everything feminine, fair, beautiful in myself ... For the shoot, I had to lose my long hair, and that’s not the worst thing. For three years we shot this story. Long, hard. Both physically and psychologically. Because all the actors were very impressed by the diary entries of the besieged city residents, archived video materials ... Therefore, I immediately decided for myself that it’s not I’m going to take up other projects at the same time, so as not to get sprayed. We started rehearsing long before the shooting, which is extremely rare. And there was always a feeling of fear: after all, many people who remember the blockade are still alive and they will not forgive inaccuracies, falsehood on the screen. "
The filmmakers were rewarded for their work with recognition from both viewers and professionals. The picture was awarded the TEFI Prize in three categories at once.
Often, the heroines of Olga Sutulova are provincial girls who came to conquer the capital. So, in the social drama directed by Igor Voloshin "Nirvana", which was released in 2008, the actress played the role of Alice, who decides to break with her former life and moves to a big city. This simple and at the same time very piercing story of love, friendship, betrayal cannot leave the viewer indifferent.
You can also recall Olga Subbotina’s melodrama "About Love", the plot of which is borrowed from the novel by Oksana Robsky. The artist brilliantly coped with the role of the provincial "gray mouse", in which the Muscovite businessman suddenly falls in love. Sutulova’s company was made up of the famous Fedor Bondarchuk and Oksana Fandera. The picture is good with a non-banal ending.
Olga starred in the melodramas "Daughter of the Accordionist" and "Love Says", which were broadcast on the TV channel "Russia".
Successful were filming in the military detective "Snow and Ashes", and then in the popular series "Born by a Star", in which the actress played the role of the outgoing 1960s star Nika Umanskaya.
Olga admits that she loves her profession very much and wants to enjoy it: “I don’t want to play just to earn more money and flicker once again on the screen. I want to go to the shootings with pleasure, discuss the role with interest and then be proud of my work, and not be tormented on the site, regretting that she signed up for this project. "

Childhood and youth

Olga's family did not have any artists, little is known from her parents' biography: her mother and father graduated from the Leningrad Electrotechnical Institute with an engineering degree. The actress also has a sister Alena, who is 8 years older than her.
Actress Olga Sutulova
The girl did not like school, she studied physics, mathematics and chemistry with difficulty, but Olya did better with humanitarian subjects. Especially the girl loved English, which she studied in an in-depth program.
Teachers put deuces on behavior to a young obstinate student, since Sutulova was an ebullient and restless child.
The actress left bright impressions from her childhood after a trip abroad: thanks to her excellent knowledge of a foreign language, the 14-year-old girl left for the United Kingdom under an exchange program.
According to Olga’s recollections, Oxford impressed her; she seemed to be on another planet, because this was the first trip abroad of the then-future actress. But in the English school, the girl showed a hooligan character in front of teachers who insisted that nothing good would come out of a Russian student, and she did not develop friendly relations with classmates. Therefore, the path to the upper grades of the British school was closed for young Sutulova.
After being expelled from school, Olga decides to enter a vocational school majoring in mechanical engineering. The girl manages to pass the entrance exams to vocational schools perfectly, but the intelligent parents of the future star were extremely unhappy with the choice of their daughter and sent her to Peterhof in the gymnasium of Alexander II. In the new educational institution, the girl liked it, so Olya began to be diligent in her studies.
Actress Olga Sutulova now
After graduating from the Peterhof gymnasium, Sutulova passed the entrance exams to the Faculty of History, but there the girl’s studies did not work out well.
As a child, Olya did not think about the career of an actress. When the girl was 15 years old, she went to her parents' birthday, where she met Oleg Danilov, who wrote scripts for the director Dmitry Astrakhanov. Oleg liked the girl’s artistic features, and already in 1998 Sutulova was invited to one of the main roles in the drama television series “Waiting Room”. Olya played the Zarechensky pupil of the orphanage Sveta, who wanted to become an actress. The girl worked on the same set with the following notorious actors: Mikhail Boyarsky, Vera Glagoleva, Vyacheslav Tikhonov and others.

The behavior was bad, exact sciences were not given, although both mom and dad are both mathematical engineers. Olya was good at languages. She studied at a school where English was studied in depth.
When Olga was fourteen, she spent several months in Oxford, where students were sent for exchange. The trip made a strong impression on her. In high school they did not accept her. The girl decided that she would study at a vocational school, and filed documents there. Parents were against it, as a result, their daughter continued her studies at the gymnasium, which was located in Peterhof.
