Oksana Aleksandrovna Akinshina (Russian: Оксана Александровна Акиньшина; born 19 April 1987) is a Russian actress. She is best known for her roles in films Sisters (2001), Lilya 4-ever (2002), The Bourne Supremacy (2004), and Hipsters (2008).

Early life[edit]

Oksana Akinshina was born in Leningrad, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union (now Saint Petersburg, Russia), where she currently lives.[1] Her father was a car mechanic and her mother an accountant. She has a younger sister.[2] At the time she landed the role in Lilya 4-ever (2002), Akishnina only spoke Russian, and communicated with director Lukas Moodysson with the help of Alexandra Dahlström as her interpreter.[1]


Starting acting at age 12, Akinshina was discovered by Sergei Bodrov, Jr., and she made her screen début in the Russian crime film Sisters (2001), Bodrov's own directorial début.[citation needed]

Her second film, Lilya 4-Ever (2001), earned her a 2002 European Film Award nomination for Best Actress. She lost, however, to the eight actresses of the film 8 Women (2002), directed by François Ozon. For her role in Lilya 4-Ever, she also received the award for Best Actress in Leading Role from the Guldbagge Awards, Sweden's national film awards.[citation needed]

Since then Akinshina has acted in the films Het Zuiden, directed by Martin Koolhoven, and The Bourne Supremacy (2004), directed by Paul Greengrass.

Personal life[edit]

From 2007 to 2010, Akinshina was married to businessman Dmitry Litvinov,[3] with whom she has a son, Filip Litvinov, born 2 June 2009. In 2012, she remarried to film producer Archil Gelovani. Akinshina gave birth to her second child, Konstantin, on 15 January 2013 and a daughter Emmi Gelovani (b. January 25, 2017). The couple separated in 2018.[4]
