Marianna is one of the bright stars of small Russian town Nizhny Tagil, which is known for its arts and crafts (among other things!). With an uncanny likeness to a young Uma Thurman (think Dangerous Liaisons, not Kill Bill 2), Marianna is simply quite stunning. Signed with Direct Scouting Center and so far only placed in Singapore, Marianna radiates potential as well as versatility. A girl who loves horses, heavy metal, and skating, Marianna’s sunny disposition and spellbinding beauty will certainly capture the attention of the right agencies and clients.

    Actually, what is Nizhny Tagil is known for are not “arts and crafts”. Here’s 13 (!) metallurgist factories so almost all the people have to work there because of the absence of other kinds of jobs.

    So this is a good chance to Marianna to fly over reality

    What a face! So changeable with make up on. And yes, she could really be Uma Thurman in young.
