Early life and career
Skobtseva appeared in Othello in 1955 along with Sergei Bondarchuk.
She played Pierre Bezukhov's wife Elena Kuragina Bezukhova in the juggernaut War and Peace – a husband-wife pairing, as Pierre was played by Bondarchuk himself. She also had a small cameo role in the 1970s film Waterloo as a French woman who followed her husband to the battlefield.
She semi-retired in the 1980s, but has made some appearances on television since.
She first met Bondarchuk shooting Othello, and they married a year later. His second wife, Skobtseva is the mother of Elena Bondarchuk and Fyodor Bondarchuk.
