The veteran Russian actress and film director Vera Glagoleva, unfortunately, passed away in mid-August 2017 after a fight against cancer. In her life, Vera had three daughters in two marriages. This article focuses on Anastasia Shubskaya, Vera’s last daughter, who is also her only child with her second husband, wealthy shipbuilding magnate Kirill Shubsky.
Although Anastasia could have otherwise enjoyed average fame as the daughter of a star, she did not let herself be overshadowed by her superstar mother and wealthy father. Instead, she has carved out an evergreen niche for herself as a charming model and film producer. She has also achieved something in acting.
Who is Anastasia Shubskaya?
Anastasia was born on 16 November 1993 under the name “Nastja Shubskaya”, two years after her mother divorced her first husband Rodion Nakhapetov. Anastasia, born in Switzerland, has triple citizenship – Russian (through her parents), Swiss (by birth) and American (by naturalization).
As mentioned above, Anastasia Shubskaja’s mother achieved fame as an actress and film director. Her acting skills were so great that she was awarded the prestigious Prize of the People’s Artist of Russia in 2011. Vera’s work in the entertainment industry greatly influenced Anastasia’s own career path, as she felt the desire to work in film from her earliest years. As for Anastasia’s father Kirill Shubsky, he earned the nickname “the Russian Onassis” after the Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis (1906-1975), who owned the largest privately acquired fleet of ships in the world. Kirill is so celebrated for his own exploits in the shipping industry, where he has built up great wealth over the years.
Anastasia’s upbringing took place across borders, which can be blamed for her obviously broadened horizon.
