Born under the sign of Aquarius on the 14th of February 1985, in former Leningrad, then USSR (present-day St. Petersburg, Russia), Natalya Rudakova is a 33-year-old Caucasian actress of Russian descent. She is perhaps best known for her appearance alongside the legendary Jason Statham in the main female role in “Transporter 3” in 2008. She has also had a number of other lesser roles in films and TV shows during her career in the often lucrative acting business since 2008.
Early Life and Education
Since Natalya isn’t an overly popular celebrity, and because she herself hasn’t disclosed virtually anything thus far, there is currently almost no information about any part of her youth. The names and professions of her parents are unknown, and to the media’s knowledge until now, it doesn’t appear as though she has any siblings. Still, there is the fact that her parents moved to New York City when she was 17 years of age, due to the increasingly difficult USSR situation. It is alleged that her mother used to nourish Natalya’s interest for acting from an early age, by taking her to theatre every weekend, and encouraging her to take acting lessons, although this was never confirmed. It is unknown which high school she went to, whether she ever matriculated, and whether she ever had a college education.
Unlike most actresses, Natalya didn’t plan on pursuing an acting career; her rise to stardom happened completely accidentally, while she was working a low-paying job as a hair dresser in New York City. According to the Internet Movie Database, the world-renowned director and writer Luc Besson was in the vicinity and saw her crossing the street one day, at which point he saw a potential actress for the upcoming movie he was working on, and thus approached her, telling her that he would provide acting lessons for her, which she accepted. After six months of tutoring, Natalya was cast in the lead female role of Valentina Tomilenko in “Transporter 3”, which came out in 2008. Being cast in a film this famous saw an instant rise to stardom, and although it took three years for her next role, Natalya was cast in two films in 2011 – “The One” and “A Novel Romance”. In 2015, she got to star in another two films – “Waiting for a Train” and “Before the Snow”, as well as a single episode of the show entitled “Blindspot.” Currently, she is involved in two films, one in post-production and one in pre-production.
Since Natalya is quite new in the world of stars, there haven’t thus far been any rumors considering her romantic life. That said, it’s mostly because Natalya never really showed an interest in addressing this matter, and she was also never been seen admiring a potential partner openly.
