Domestic TV presenter Anfisa Chekhova told how she acquired the famous surname. She became the writer's namesake at the age of 17, deliberately decided to change her surname and never parted with her.
The future star decided to take such a step out of love for the work of Anton Pavlovich. At school, she literally fell in love with the writer's stories and managed to read everything he wrote. Nevertheless, at the exam she was overwhelmed with a question about the work "Ionych".
Anfisa could not remember the middle name of the main character of the story. Nevertheless, this did not affect the love of the writer's work in any way - at the institute the nickname Chekhovedka stuck to the TV presenter.
So all the circumstances led to becoming Chekhova officially. Anfisa did not deny herself this and changed her documents. She changed her surname Korchunova and now proudly bears the name of an idol, writes the site Actual News.
Earlier, Anfisa Chekhova told about the start of a new show. The Model XL project will start on the U TV channel on February 22. Together with Anfisa, comedian Ekaterina Skulkina, stylist Nikolai Ovechkin and psychologist Pavel Rakov will evaluate the participants.
