Kristina Akheeva has certainly proved herself in the modelling and the movie industry. She is not just a beautiful face with a perfect body, but obviously she has brains, passions and substance. She had come a long way and for now she is reaping the rewards of her hard work and commitment to her chosen craft.
She was born in Khabarovsk, Russia and then her family migrated to Australia when she was 7. Kristina had long dreamed to become an actress. When she was 17, she moved to Melbourne to study acting. At the age of 21, she was offered a three-month modelling contract in Singapore. The experience has ignited Kristina’s love and passion for modelling where she spent the next six years of her life working as a model.
Kristina Akheeva took charge of her career and managed to take it to the next level. She is certainly an inspiration to the young and aspiring models. In fact, she is only 5’7’’ in height, and considered short in the modelling world. However, she proved that height is not a hindrance at all. Today, she is a prominent face in the glamorous adverting world! She has done lots of commercials and campaigns for various products which has toughened her position in the world of modelling.
Kristina loves different assignments for different reasons. In her interview with STIG Timeless Editions Magazine (Edition 3), she mentioned that she’s really proud of her Sunsilk Shampoo TV commercial. Certainly, her long, beautiful, gleaming, steaming, and black hair best describes what Sunsilk is trying to portray that everyone deserves a beautiful hair.
Actually, Kristina’s hair does all the talking most of the time. Her sleek, beautiful hair styled in the hottest fashion makes head turn everywhere she goes. This can be the reason why Kristina is doing a lot of campaigns for hair and skin products including Palmolive and Vaseline Lotion.
Modelling served as a stepping stone for Kristina in entering the movie industry. In 2012, she moved to India, where she was cast in the film Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, the sequel to the 2011 hit film Yamla Pagla Deewana. For the role, she learned on how to speak Hindi in order to perform her part effectively. In 2014 she made her Tollywood debut with Galipatam. She is not only perfect in modelling, but performs brilliantly in a movie as well. She is undoubtedly someone to watch out for!
For those who do not know yet, Kristina is also a trained salsa dancer! Possibly she will soon land a bigger role and who knows if that is going to be in Hollywood! We really do not know what is coming for this promising young model and actress.
