Actress and singer Lika Rulla: biography, work, and interesting facts
Have you ever wondered who was voiced in the second part of the cartoon about Shrek's fairy godmother? The mistress of this strong voice is actress Lika Rulla. The girl mainly appears in the musicals of theaters, rather than in the movies. She has a really beautiful and sonorous voice, it was due to him that Lika Rull became famous. The songs that we are accustomed to hearing from other soloists, in her performance become no worse, as they mostly do, but in their own way more interesting and deeper. What began Lika's career, we will tell in this article.
How did such a name appear - Lika?
Lika was born on July 8, 1972 in Almaty. Her parents are creative people, both actors. Mother - Margarita Konysheva - Honored Artist of Russia, and her father - Vladimir Rull - later actor of the Central House of Workers of the Moscow Culture.
Even before the child was born, the parents signed a contract: the son is given the name mother, and the daughter is the father.Lika later admitted that she was just lucky to be born a girl and that her dad had named her.
Mom wanted to give her the name Natalya, but her father recalled the persuasion and decided to call Lika, since Angela or Angelica seemed to him too rough for such a crumb. Just dad was a fan of the Angelica and the King book series. That's the whole secret!
One of a kind
When Lika Rulla began to grow up, she realized that she was destined to have a special destiny. Take even the name - Lika. Not Angela, Natasha, Masha or Katya, which was full. Yes, and Rulla! This meant only one thing - she is a special girl.
Lika Rulla did not like to go to kindergarten and New Year! Why did not Lika love this magical holiday for all children? She just once recognized the father in the eyes of Santa Claus, stopped believing in this magical, kind old man and no longer expected a miracle. It happened at the time when the girl was about four years.
From then on, she began to participate in the New Year's commemorations with her father, Santa Claus, in the role of the Snow Maiden.
The work of parents is the most interesting thing in life.
Why do we need a kindergarten, ate much more interesting to spend time behind the scenes at a timewhen parents show another performance or rehearse? Lika loved the theater madly! She was interested in everything: the lighting room, the make-up room, the dressing room, the stage — especially! This smell of dust from the wings, clean floors and stale scenarios is not comparable to anything! Who was on stage, he will understand these feelings.
It’s time to choose, but there’s nothing to choose
In school, Lika Rulla was just happy - she was engaged in amateur activities, visited the pool, read a lot. I read it even in a physics lesson, but not what the teacher required.
In the senior classes, the girls were not required to have perfect knowledge of algebra or chemistry, they were pulling on the foursome somehow, but that was good. Everyone knew that Rulla was dreaming of a scene where chemistry was hardly useful.
After graduating from school, she flies to conquer the capital, but to no avail. Lika could not pass the entrance exams to prestigious theater institutes. And then the thought comes to her that in Yekaterinburg, at that time still Sverdlovsk, there is also a theater institute. She leaves for the capital of the Urals and remains there for the next few years.
Giving up my husband and work!
It was Lika's loud statement, but more on that later, let's start over.
After graduation, Lika is looking for work in Smolensk, but for four months completely unsuccessfully. Again Moscow, again looking for work - is empty. In the end, she received a call from the Smolensk Drama Theater, where the girl left her data. There was a place.
In this theater, she had access to leading roles: in Carmen, Carmen, in Petersburg, Sophia, in Twelfth Night, Viola. But she didn’t have enough money for rented accommodation and food, so Lika Rulla got a job at a local bar, where she performed intimate songs for visitors at night.
On the radio station "Europe +" Lika got accidentally. She was invited to run the program on applications, she agreed as an experiment. But this experiment was delayed for a long seven years. During this time, Rulla managed to get married.
In 2001, she realized that everything, point, tired! Is there somewhere this very happiness - the work you have dreamed of since childhood? And now, the decision to move to Moscow. Quit work, a husband, if you do not agree to move, but leave this place! So she did.
This time the capital turned out to be more affable to a stubborn girl. From the very first attempt she was approved for the role, and not for any in the far corner of the last row of scenes, but for the leading role of Velma Kelly in the production of the musical "Chicago"!
Even Lika Rulla herself could not believe this miracle. If she had been told a year ago that she would soon play on the same stage with Milyavskaya and Kirkorov, she would have sent this man to an insane asylum. And now she is in a hurry for a rehearsal!
And they went to the role - the very first, the most interesting. So in the "Mowgli" she played a beautiful - Bagheera, in the "Count Orlov" - Catherine the Second, in the "Hollywood Diva" - Gloria Mills. For Mills, she won the Golden Mask.
She was a little distracted by the pedagogical activity in the "Star Factory", where she taught the participants to "speak", she returned to the musical "Zoykina apartment" by Zoyka herself.
In 2013, repeated “Chicago”. This time, Lika Rulla volunteered to help her colleague, the role of Roxy Hart, to prepare for the role in the musical to help prepare. For this, the girls arrived at the city prison and were asked to sleep in a cell with real prisoners!

June 11, 2015 Lika performs her solo concert in St. Petersburg. She performs well-known songs by Pugacheva Alla, Marylya Radovich, Zhanna Rozhdestvenskaya, the group “City 312”, Lev Leshchenko, Lyudmila Gurchenko. There were songs of different times, mores and styles, verses by Akhmatova and other poets were read. Has coped with the task at one hundred percent Lika Rulla!
"Monologues of love" - a concert, but not so ordinary. In it, the girl touched the souls of all the spectators with long familiar songs, with her wonderful voice. She communicated with the audience with music, gave so much energy and positive that the air rang in the hall.
All the songs were about love, about the relationship between a man and a woman, about the eternal and most intimate. It was an absolutely amazing concert, filled with a sea of emotions and love.
