Natalia Yevegnievna Guseva (born 1972) is a Russian actress famous for her role as [[Literature/AliceGirlFromTheFuture Alisa Selezneva]] in ''GuestFromTheFuture'', a ScienceFiction film based on the works of Creator/KirBulychev. She had appeared in some small movies, but became an instant star with the release of ''GuestFromTheFuture'', which resulted in "Alisomania." She resigned from acting at the end of the 1980s when producers began offering her roles that in her words "would dirty the bright image of Alisa" and instead studied to become a scientist. She has recently returned to acting with some small roles. She lives in Moscow with her daughter Alesya, and is still involved in the fan community.

!Tropes about her
* BrainyBrunette
* ContractualPurity: Self-imposed. She refused a role in 1989 that would have required her to act in a rape scene, and took a twenty-year hiatus from acting. She said she did not want to do anything that would ruin the good image of Alisa.
* {{Defictionalization}}: Natalia Guseva, who played scientifically-minded Alisa, became a scientist and has a daughter named Alesya. ''GuestFromTheFuture'' must be more inspirational than initially thought....
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Hence her studies of entomology and biochemistry.
* GaussianGirl: [[http://www.mielofon.ru/alisoman/album_NG/photo/big/ng72.html See here]].
* GeekyTurnOn: Her husband Dennis Murashkevich is a veterinarian, and once sent Natalia a box of insects from the East.
* HypnoticEyes: [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-5RBPTtdXyJU/TVa6lA5yrPI/AAAAAAAAArc/t2ZbNAaXAA0/s1600/alisa_selezneva.jpg Absolutely captivating]].
* OneOfUs: Presents the "Alisa" award for ScienceFiction for children at the Russian scifi/fantasy convention [=RusCon=].
* [[HeAlsoDid She Also Did]]: Is a biochemist.
* SpidersAreScary: Averted. The average young lady would be terrified of a tarantula walking over her. [[http://www.mielofon.ru/alisoman/album_NG/photo/big/ng28.html Natalia Guseva is not an average lady]].
* StarMakingRole: As Alisa Selezneva in ''GuestFromTheFuture''.
