Model, Actress, and Comedian Eugenia Kuzmina

Update: 2020-08-12


Born in Russia Eugenia Kuzmina didn't expect to become a model, actress, or comedian. Her dream was to become an astronaut. But none of these things seem possible or even expected. Early creative ideas caught her scientist's parents and her early teachers by surprise like the time she made bikinis out of soviet uniforms or snuck into a screening of “Terminator 2“ at five.

And then came modeling. It’s not something you can pursue, just the look you have and the Russian designer Slava Zaitzev thought she had a look for his brand and a few others, like M&Ms, RC Cola, and magazines like Vogue and Elle. Then, at 15, came contracts for Dior, L’Oreal, Hermes to travel to France, Tokyo, London, New York. She would wake up in the Amazon Jungle to Shanghai, to the Sahara to New York.

Then at 23, she gave it all up to have a baby with a man she fell in love with. It was a big leap of faith. Everyone around her was telling her that her career would be over and that she was making a mistake. But she believed life has its magical ways and things would work out.

Not long after Rodrigo Prieto was looking for a model character in a short film, he wanted to direct with Elle Fanning. He was looking for someone who could portray decadence, vanity, and extreme neurosis. Who knew you can share all the dark sides of being human on camera! From then on life has been a rollercoaster of discoveries and stories, like playing a girl of the oldest profession with John Turturro and Woody Allen on the streets on NY, making Zoe Deschanel act even more awkward on “New Girl”, playing an FBI agent with Stana Katic on Castle, being a mean night club host with Danny McBride, Scott Caan and Bill Murray and improvising with Lisa Kudrow on The Comeback, cold killing the main character on ” The Spy City ” with Dominic Cooper and so on.

Currently, Eugenia is doing stand up shows at The Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, Flappers in LA, and on tour with a group ” The Nobodies ” @nobodiesfunnytour across the US and later the world.
