Oleg Tabakov about Evdokiya Germanova:
Nobody wanted to take Evdokiya in GITIS for a long time, I took her and believed in her. I believed then and now I believe. Her actor's nature and her character bring her many difficulties. Her way not full of roses, her film-life now is more interesting, than theatrical one, but she has great potential. She is doomed for torments of creativity by the talent and her nerve nature. In these torments is her weakness, but in them there is an opportunity of unique result. And the main task for today is nevertheless to overcome her character. The doubt in her own perfection should not prevent Evdokiya from seeing perfection in people around her. Also it is necessary to be simpler with projects, and to be not afraid of failure.
