Natalya Dmitrievna Vavilova (Russian: Наталья Дмитриевна Вавилова, born 26 January 1959) is a Russian film actress.


Vavilova started her career as an actress at the age of fourteen. She appeared in several pictures in supporting roles. In 1984, Natalya Vavilova graduated from the All-Union State Institute of Cinematography, studying under Yevgeny Matveyev, an acclaimed Russian actor and director.[1] Her classmate was Alim Kouliev. Success and fame brought her the role of Aleksandra Tikhomirova in the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film picture Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears.[2]

While being filmed for the picture Nikolai Podvoisky, she fell from a horse and suffered a spinal trauma. Her last film was The Sukhovo-Kobylin Case. After she accomplished that work, Natalya Vavilova stopped pursuing her acting career. Since that time she has avoided all contacts with the press. She lives with her husband, Russian film director Samvel Gasparov, in a house twelve kilometers from Moscow. She is involved in floriculture and philanthropy.
