Anastasia Shubskaya – Biography & Facts About Vera Glagoleva’s Daughter

The veteran Russian actress cum film director Vera Glagoleva sadly passed on in mid-August 2017 after a battle with 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 kid with her second husband, the wealthy ship-building magnate Kirill Shubsky.

Although Anastasia could otherwise have had average fame as the daughter of a star, she did not allow herself to end up in the shadow of her superstar mother nor in that of her wealthy father. Instead, she has gone ahead to carve out an evergreen niche for herself as a charming model and film producer. She has also done some acting.

Who is Anastasia Shubskaya?

Anastasia was born with the name ‘Nastya Shubskaya’ on November 16, 1993, two years after her mother divorced her first husband Rodion Nakhapetov. Born in Switzerland, Anastasia holds triple citizenship – of Russia (through her parents), Switzerland (by birth), and the USA (by naturalization).

As earlier mentioned, Anastasia Shubskaya’s mother achieved fame for herself as an actress and film director. Her acting prowess was so great that she was decorated with the prestigious award of People’s Artist of Russia in 2011. Vera’s work in the entertainment industry did much to influence Anastasia’s own career path as she started desiring to work in the movies from her earliest years. As for Anastasia’s father Kirill Shubsky, he has earned the nickname ‘the Russian Onassis’ after the Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis (1906-1975) who is remembered for having owned the world’s largest privately acquired fleet of ships. Kirill is so acclaimed because of his own exploits in the shipping business where he has built a great wealth over the years.

Anastasia’s upbringing took place across countries, which could be held responsible for her obviously expanded horizon. Following her birth in Switzerland, she spent some years in the country during which she went through the preschool and primary education system. Later on, her parents moved back with her to their home country of Russia where Anastasia went to high school.

Having already decided on what she wanted to do with her life, Anastasia Shubskaya did not waste any moment after graduating from high school before she got enrolled at the Moscow-based Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography. After her days at Gerasimov, she still went ahead to acquire an American background in the profession by going through a brief but intensive course at The New York Film Academy.

Having received the required training to her satisfaction, Anastasia launched out by being a part of her mother’s works as a movie director. She also began to put her stunning looks to good use as a model.
