Personal life of Natalia Varley
Natalya Varley is one of the most beloved actresses in our country. Despite the fact that she is almost never filmed today, the audience knows and respects her, from the youngest to the elderly. Perhaps there is not a single person who would not have seen her "Prisoner of the Caucasus" or "Viya". Her personal life excites the public no less than her work. Moreover, for a long time Varley did not talk about her life, and only rumors about her circulated around the country.
Natalia Varley was born in the city of Constanta in Romania in the family of a sea captain. Natalia’s childhood passed already in Murmansk, and later, the family moved to Moscow.
Once, mother took Natasha to a circus performance. At the cash desk, the girl saw an advertisement for a circus art studio and, soon, secretly from her parents, she went to study there.
In 1965, she graduated from the School of Circus and Variety Art and began working in the circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard. It was there that the partner in the number, the famous clown Leonid Yengibarov, introduced her to the director Yungvald-Khilkevich, and he invited the young actress to the film "Rainbow Formula". So Varley got into the wonderful world of cinema.
Work in the cinema immediately brought her great success. After filming in the Rainbow Formula, Natalya was noticed by Gaidai and invited to audition for the Prisoner of the Caucasus. Of the almost five hundred actresses, the director chose her, a 19-year-old graduate of the circus school. Gaidai did not fail: the heroine Varley, "a student and a Komsomol member" Nina fell in love with the whole country.
Fans bombarded the actress with letters, tried to meet her on the street, confessed their love. She also had her own personal life, not at all easy.
In 1967, she married director Leonid Burlyaev. Their marriage did not last long, the couple soon parted.
Seeing Varley in The Prisoner of the Caucasus, Vladimir Tikhonov, the son of Nonna Mordyukova and Vyacheslav Tikhonov, fell in love with her. Natalia reciprocated, and the young people got married. Immediately after the wedding, according to the actress, her husband began to be terribly jealous of her for everyone. He believed gossip, constantly suspected his wife of infidelity, sorted things out. And soon he became addicted to alcohol. Nevertheless, the couple had a son, Vasily.
After his birth, Natalya decided to divorce her husband and began to raise her son alone. Unable to leave the boy to relatives, and forced to earn money, Varley took the child with her to the shooting. The actress completely immersed herself in the work and upbringing of her son, and could not even imagine the appearance of another man in her life.
When the boy grew up, Natalya, who had been writing poetry since childhood, decided to fulfill her dream and entered the Gorky Literary Institute. Studying in the 2nd year, the actress gave birth to another son – Alexander. Until now, she keeps the name of his father a secret.
The eldest son Vasily graduated from the Institute of Contemporary Arts. In 1995, he and his wife gave Varley their first grandson, Zhenya. The youngest son Alexander is now studying at the Faculty of Journalism. The actress, who does not favor journalists, jokes: “If your television programs are similar to those that flooded the air, beware: I gave birth to you, I will kill you!"
Today, Natalya Varley rarely acts in films, but she works a lot in the theater and is engaged in dubbing films and TV shows. She writes poetry, publishes her collections.
The actress recently got married again. Being a deeply religious person, she married her young husband. She tries to talk less about her family happiness in public, preferring that fans pay more attention to her work.
What if the purpose of the relationship is something unconditional for which both the man and the woman could take responsibility? What if this is… the practice of love? Love is what is within us; something for which we are responsible in both good and bad times. Love allows us to focus on our own efforts and responsibilities, as well as to notice the advantages of our partner. Too many people focus on taking something from the relationship. But, for a harmonious relationship, you need to give, take responsibility for your happiness, and then “invest” it in others.
