People’ Artist of the USSR, Winner of State Prizes of the Russian Federation, Hero of Socialist Labor
Yu.K. Borisova graduated from B.V. Schukin Theater School in 1947 and in the same year was employed in Evg. Vakhtangov Theater.
Yuliya Konstantinovna Borisova is an outstanding representative of Vakhtangov School mastering both maximum soul uncovering, almost public confession, and shining theatricality, almost grotesque. Characters created by Borisova are always of high purity, innocent poetry, and spiritual power.
“Such actresses like she are commonly called stars but Yuliya Konstantinovna is not a star of Vakhtangov Theater. She is its great planet” (Mikhail Ulyanov). For many years, being a leading actress of the theater, Yuliya Borisova was a Deputy of Supreme Council of RSFSR (from 1963) and a member of Presidium of Artist House.
