From childhood, in the family of Masha often gathered guests - actors.
Apparently already then she began to take shape the dream of becoming an actress.
Maria Poroshina was born in a musical family. Her mother Natalya Krasnoyarskaya studied on the course of Boris Alexandrovich Pokrovsky - director of the Bolshoi Theater. But then, having lost her voice during the operation, she became an opera director. Dad Mikhail Poroshin sang in the ensemble "Birch". The opera singer was Maria’s grandmother. Soon, Mary's parents divorced. Natalya Krasnoyarskaya married a second time - for actor Dmitry Nazarov. He turned out to be a good stepfather - he got along well with his adopted daughter, checked his lessons, and educated. Masha had little free time.
The girl studied in a French special school and was engaged in dancing at the ensemble "Birch". Remembering that time, she says: "I do not remember a happier time." From childhood, in the family of Masha often gathered guests - actors. Apparently already then she began to take shape the dream of becoming an actress. A cousin of Maria Anna Sazonova says: “... she got up on a chair or climbed onto the stage of the campaign site in the courtyard and announced: '' People's Artist Maria Poroshina performs, '' she read poetry, sang, danced, spoke French ..."
And yet, few believed that Mary would become an actress. She had a class up to 3-4, in her own words, a "prickly character." And then she suddenly became an extremely shy girl. She was afraid to go to the store for bread, because she had to contact the seller. And when she was raised to read a poem in a literature lesson, Masha was shy, stammered, and confused the lines. Only in the circle of relatives and friends did she continue to be bold and relaxed.

The marriage with Gosha Kutsenko was short-lived. They parted, but maintained a good relationship. Maria Poroshina says: “We lived with him for five years. He is a wonderful person and a talented actor. He gave me a wonderful daughter. Sometimes we film together, and our past relationships do not interfere with work. ”

Maria Poroshina recalls: “I was invited to this film for auditions, which I couldn’t get to, because I starred, rehearsed, and had tours. And I already thought: well, that means not fate. A month has passed. Then again they began to call and say that they had not approved anyone yet. Samples are very difficult, for example, for me. Having read the text right away, you need to quickly figure out what kind of person you are doing, what you want to say with that. One of the scenes of the break with my husband was on the samples, where I cried and asked him to return, I did not understand what was happening. And maybe because of these samples I was approved. And then a very fast shooting period went on, and I no longer understood how everything happened so quickly: the main role, and such a big responsibility. This is my first major role. I was terribly worried and felt a great responsibility. It was difficult and interesting. Character consists of three parts. This is a woman at the beginning of a more prosperous period, she is married, she has love, children. Then the prison situation and the aftermath, suffering. ”
