Stas Sadalsky told in his account on social networks that Olga Gobzeva, who left the acting profession and now a nun Olga, came to the evening in memory of Yuri Bogatyrev. Olga admitted that she was very happy to be invited to the event, because she and Yuri starred in one of the series of the popular TV show “This Fantastic World”, where they played the parents of the boy Ronnie, living in a country where people were forbidden to read and all information they could receive only from unpublished mass media.

At the end of the evening, Sadalsky managed to talk to Gobzeva and ask him a question that had tormented him for many years. It turned out that as a student he saw an actress, who was already an all-Union star, in public transport. Here’s just the question: “Are you an actress Olga Gobzeva?” she answered in the negative. “She lied. Please forgive me, ”the actress said years later.
