Christina Grandma was born in Irkutsk, in a family of musicians. Her father, Konstantin S. Babushkin, many years playing in the Governor`s orchestra Regional Philharmonic, and his mother, Olga Stanislavovna, taught conducting at the Regional College of Music and directed the Philharmonic Chamber Choir. Naturally, the parents and their daughter in the future seen in this area. Mother Christina said that her daughter might be a good opera singer, because she has such a wonderful voice!
Despite the fact that parents in early childhood gave Christina a music school, music is not a girl fascinated. Most of all she loved books (to read, she learned more in four years). And since my parents had a wonderful library, reading voraciously Christina. Her mother remembers such an event, "Kristine - six years, and it should be at ear training in music school. And it`s not, gone! I am broken with work nesus home, nowhere! Involved all sit roar. Then I take the addresses of her friends and go to the first girl (and near her home has opened a library). For seven o`clock in the evening, dark - and suddenly comes out from the library Kristina. The woman closes the door behind her. "Honey, where have you been?" - Cry. She lowers her head, and the woman says, "You know, our library closes at six o`clock, and I would have left earlier, but the child finished reading ..."
Christina loved to gather in the yard of the children and read to them a variety of fairy tales. I read it always with passion and in the people, already showing actors data. And if it was a bear, something real, roaring bear, if a mouse is Christina literally changed into her, going on tonyusenkoy squeak. Well, whom she was to become, if not an actress ?! One day, she and his parents said: "Enough of a family of musicians!"
The path to the profession
Christina Grandma always stood strong-willed character. I decided to become an actress - and became! In Irkutsk Drama School, she entered, in secret from the family. Parents Christina said already a fait accompli: "Congratulate me enrolled in drama school."

When the theater received a telegram that causes the shooting actress, Christina hid her. "It`s still early to sell his face, albeit it hung in the Moscow Art Theater" - then said Tabakov.
