Oleg Tabakov about Marina Zudina:
It is difficult for my to speak about Marina because last years she in her free from work time acting as my wife and mother of our son Pavlik. Some years ago she played in the English thriller Dumb witness. She played so, that everything became clear. She turned to be the actress Marina Zudina, but not just a student of Oleg Tabakov or his wife. It is a pity that some roles left and leave. This is an actor's life. Romantic roles to which Marina has taste and abilities left, but there came other roles, new opportunities appeared. It seems to me, Marina has entered a good phase of the profession.
