honored Artist of the Russian Federation, recipient of the National Theater Award "Golden Mask"
«We don't work in the theater, we serve in the theater! It is not about money nor about success. The work of an actor is a mixture of pure emotions and knowledge, psychology, literature, music, choreography ... all types of art are combined in the theater. An actor is a job that wears you out ... As soon as an actor stops developing, they die as an actor».
