Darya Vladimirovna Poverennova (Russian: Да́рья Влади́мировна Пове́реннова; born June 15, 1972), is a Russian theatre and film actress, and a granddaughter of the great Soviet actor Sergei Lukyanov.
Darya Poverennova was born on June 15, 1972. The actress' mother spent her career with the Taganka Theatre, and her grandmother, Nadezhda Tyshkevich, was a ballerina in Kiev. Her legendary grandfather, actor Sergei Lukyanov (who appeared in "Kuban Cossacks" and "The Captain's Daughter", died long before her birth. Darya's parents wanted her to follow in her father's footsteps and become a translator; she took intensive English courses and was tutored. However, she felt drawn to the theatre, where she applied, unsuccessfully, for further studies. Despite this negative experience, she took a year to work as a director's assistant. Following this, she was accepted to the Boris Shchukin Theatre Institute and ultimately graduated.
