Elena Sergeyevna Berkova (Ukrainian: Олена Сергіївна Беркова, Russian: Елена Сергеевна Беркова), born on 1 April 1985, in Mykolaiv, Ukraine, is an Ukrainian ex-model, television presenter, singer and actress (including hardcore pornography acting).
Berkova started modelling in her teen years. In 2002 she worked with the Norwegian erotic photographer Petter Hegre. After she moved to St. Petersburg, in 2003, she made her hardcore debut for a Russian "defloration" website. Then she performed in an U.S. production.
In 2004, she joined the popular show Dom-2 on TV channel TNT and her porn career was soon made public. Berkova became a celebrity in Russia and she benefited with a Russian porn film, which had a title that reflected the curiosity and ambitions of male viewers: Dom-2 or How to make love with Elena Berkova. This film immediately became the best-selling hardcore video in Russia. She gained so much popularity that her later porn films (all of them US productions) were released in Russia bearing titles named after her.
Berkova was then cast in a controversial Russian porn movie Yulia directed by Alexei Mitrofanov, member of Duma, in August 2005. The film is a parody the relationship between Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. However she refused the lead role.
In 2006 Elena appeared as a singer in a pop music girl group Min net!. Currently Berkova has been cast in another porn project (while hosting for "Bessporno" TV show on Muz-TV), although she herself has numerously stated about quitting pornographic career in early 2007.
