Lina Braknite's Biography

Lina Braknite, actress of "The Girl and an Echo" fame, was taken away from her parents for six years at age eleven, to perform as an actress in Leningrad and Odessa. She starred in "the Girl and an echo", "Three fat men", "Last day holidays", "Beautiful Girl", "Dubravka", " the Sea of our hope ", " Last fort ", which made her a Soviet child star.

When she returned to Vilnius at age seventeen, she realized that she'd missed pivotal parts of her childhood. Her teachers at school told her that there was no way of making up for lost time. That bittered the young actress, decided she would prove her teachers wrong, and never to do cinema again. She then realized she never wanted to be an actress in the first place.

After studying history at the Vilnius University she married a fellow student, gave birth to a daughter and worked anonymously as a librarian at the Institute of History, for twenty years.

Recently, when a russian internet journalist, residing in Germany, was devoting a website to Lina, he searched for her in Russia and Lithuania. Nobody could help him, not even film institutes and cultural authorities - it looked like she'd disappeared from the globe.

After much effort he found her. She is currently an unemployed housewife, occasionally helping her husband in a private publishing company.

Although she's become one of Russia's biggest cult child stars (comparable with Brooke Shields in the west) she really doesn't want to be reminded of her acting career, and loves to enjoy her family life anonymously, in Lithuania.
