The series "Do not be born beautiful": actors 15 years later
In September 2005, television began showing the series about a career and the search for personal happiness of a girl – “blue stocking”. Katya Pushkareva became the Russian version of Betty the ugly. The series was warmly received by the audience, possibly due to the good cast and adaptation to domestic realities. But what happened to the cast after 15 years? We decided to find out about it and share with you.
Katya Pushkareva (actress Nelly Uvarova)
At that moment, when Nelly Uvarova began to play the role of Katya Pushkareva, she performed at the RAMT Theater (where she continues to work). While her character was suffering from unrequited love, the actress herself married Sergei Pikalov, with whom they were familiar even from work in the theater. But three years later, the couple broke up. In 2011, Nelly Uvarova again married Alexander Grishin and gave birth to two children. Now she has changed outwardly: she has short hair and excess weight, but the actress looks happy.
