After that, Ivanova did not appear in the cinema for more than ten years, graduated from school and entered a medical institute.
The return to the cinema happened by chance, when her acquaintance, studying at VGIK, offered to play a role in her graduation film. This work was noticed by director Marlen Khutsiev and decided to invite Ivanova to shoot in his new film.
The film, which Khutsiev shot together with Felix Mironer, was called "Spring on Zarechnaya Street." In it Ivanova played the main role of the teacher of the Russian language and literature Tatyana Sergeevna. The appearance in this picture brought the actress all-Union fame.
Subsequently, Ivanova played in a dozen more films, however, due to the difficulties arising in the performance of roles due to the lack of professional acting education, she decided to abandon her further acting career.
