Olga Kurylenko, a Ukrainian-born actress and model, went from sharing a cramped flat with her aunt, uncle, grandparents and cousin to starring as a Bond girl opposite Daniel Craig.She was born Olga Konstantinovna Kurylenko on November 14, 1979, in Berdyansk, Ukraine, Soviet Union.Her mother, Marina Alyabysheva, divorced her father, Konstantin Kurylenko, soon after her birth.

Young Olga was brought up by her mother and her grandmother, Raisa.

During her youth Olga had the humbling experience of living in poverty; she had no choice but to wear rags and had to darn the holes on her sweater.

During her years in Ukraine she studied art and languages and spent seven years studying piano at a local school of music in Berdyansk. At age 13 Olga and her mother made a trip to Moscow.

There she was spotted by an agent, who approached her at a subway station and offered her a job as a model.

Initially Olga's mother was suspicious, but she checked the agent's credentials and eventually allowed Olga to accept training as a model in Moscow, which turned out to be a good career choice. She moved to Paris, learned French in six months and was signed by the Madison agency.
