By the age of 77, the talented actress Ekaterina Vasilyeva decided to take a serious step – she became a nun.
“Actress Yekaterina Vasilyeva was tonsured, her son is a priest in the Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker on Three Mountains,” said Maria Shukshina.
Kira Shemakhanskaya from “The Wizards” is not the first time trying to connect her life with God. In the 90s, she already went to a monastery, but continued to act in films and play in theaters.
11 years ago, Ekaterina Vasilyeva lost her husband and godson one by one. In February 2010, her godson Vladislav Galkin tragically passed away, a few months later her husband, playwright Mikhail Roshchin.
The current step means for the actress an almost complete rejection of the usual life. She cannot get married and have unnecessary things, writes “Constantinople”.
