Tatyana Anatoliyevna Dogileva (Russian: Татья́на Анато́льевна До́гилева) is a famous Soviet and Russian film and stage actress, Meritorious Artist of Russia (1989), and People's Artist of Russia (2000).[1][2]


Early life and education[edit]

Dogileva was born on February 27, 1957 in Moscow into a working-class family. She received her secondary education at a Moscow school at the Academy of Pedagogical Sciences, where she combined her studies with rhythmic gymnastics and choreography. At age 14, she entered the studio of a young actor at the Central Television.[1][2]

In 1978, Dogileva graduated from the Lunacharsky State Institute of Theatrical Art, where she studied under Vsevolod Ostalsky.[1][2]


Dogileva's stage career began with a successful performance in her thesis play Much Ado About Nothing, where she played Beatrice.[1][2]

After that, the actress was invited to three Moscow theaters, but she chose the Moscow Lenin Komsomol Theater, where she worked until 1985. Among her best-known Lenkom parts was that of Nelly in Cruel Games staged by Mark Zakharov, which became an important theatrical event.[1][2]

Having transferred in 1985 to the Yermolova Theatre, Dogileva participated in the productions of director Valery Fokin Sports Games, Speak, Shaky Balance, in the play by Roman Viktyuk, Our Decameron.[1][2]

In the eight-hour play by Peter Stein "Oresteia" Aeschylus (1994), at the base of the Russian Army Theatre, Dogileva played Electra. According to critics, the performance was the main event of the Russian theatrical season, and later, on an international tour, earned recognition from audiences in France, Germany, Greece, Great Britain and the Netherlands.[1][2]

Among the theatrical works of Tatyana Dogileva in the 1990s were Twelfth Night at the Mossovet Theatre, and "The Incredible Session" in the entourage of Mikhail Kozakov. Tatyana Dogileva performed in the play Honoring at the Anton Chekov Theatre, and at the Theater-Studio under the direction of Oleg Tabakov in The Ideal Husband, staged in 2004.[1][2]


Dogileva started her career in film while still a student, appearing in episodic parts. Her first major role was of Nina in the film The Stowaway Passenger (1978). In the following years, she starred in the films Vasily and Vasilisa (1981), Private Life (1982), The Pokrovsky Gate (1982), Station for Two (1982), The Unexpected (1983) and many others.

The role of saleswoman Vera in The Blonde Around the Corner (1984) directed by Vladimir Bortko proved to be noteworthy, where, in a duet with Andrei Mironov, the actress created a new type of character for the screen - charming in a feminine way, yet firmly independent from the "omnipotent" Soviet service sector.[1][2]

The actress received more recognition among audiences with the role of nurse Lida in the picture Forgotten Melody for a Flute (1987) directed by Eldar Ryazanov. Dogileva played the heroine of her time, proudly confronting the difficulties of life and saving her lover from moral death. The same theme recurred in her role of Marina from Afghan Breakdown (1993), directed by Vladimir Bortko.[1][2]

Among the films she appeared in, in her later years, were The Bridegroom from Miami (1994), Hello, Fools! (1996), and East/West (1999)[1][2] as well as the TV series Plot (2003), Lyuba, Children and the Plant (2005-2006 sitcom), Hobo (2007, 2009) and Mine (2009).[1][2]

In 2005-2007, Tatyana Dogileva hosted the psychological talk show Two Truths on NTV.[1][2]


In 1998, Tatyana Dogileva made her debut as a theater director in Mikhail Kozakov's company; she staged the romantic comedy "Moonlight, a Honeymoon" based on the play Private Lives by English playwright Noël Coward. It was translated by her husband Mikhail Mishin. Despite the initially poor critical reception, the play went on being performed for 20 years.[1][2]

Then there were The Ones In Love do not Renounce... (2000), Moscow Passions based on Alexander Ostrovsky's play It's Not All Shrovetide for the Cat at the Mikhail Kozakov Theater, and the comedy The Lady Waits, the Clarinet Plays (2004) in the creative association "Duet". In 2011, her play Fallen Angels premiered at the Central House of Musicians.[1][2]

Dogileva herself acted in almost all the plays she directed. Her directorial debut was the film Lera (2007).[1][2]


In addition to working in theater, cinema and television, the actress is also active in the literary field. In 2010 she published her first novel, The Life and Adventures of Sveta Khokhryakova. Dogileva describes the modern Russian realities - the poverty-stricken life of the remote places, the luxury and full moral degradation of the capital's rich people, and the venality and lack of principle of television figures.[1]
