During the filming of the series, many actors, Actresses and even the members of the group learned about something new, discovered some intimate things that they themselves are shocked. For me it was a positive experience – I have seen from many bugs that will never do in my life. Shown in the series history can happen to anyone of us, it was created precisely in order to make people think. This was the first project that in all frankness told about the change and revealed the inner world of the characters without any embellishment. This series is made with soul, it invested a lot of effort, and it shows. Here was found a lot of creative people, infected by the same idea, and they brought to life their most ambitious plans. It happens rarely”.
“In the coming year, the main challenge for me will be a play in which I’m Stripping. The formulation is very bold, so, God forbid, to work. In the nearest plans there is one interesting work in the movies, the shooting will begin in April, and I think that this story too will become successful.

We are an integral part of the lives of other people – as neighbors or friends of friends.” The star of the series “Sweet life” left him for a career
“I often write what I like is not played and lived the role. Sure, we all write. And no one doubts that this is all true, it’s not invented by the writers. We had a very honest project that was like watching real human passions. This movie is not powdery and sleek history, but the real juicy human passions, of flesh and blood. In such situations, could be any family, regardless of wealth and education,” Meskova says.

But then I found myself in these qualities and work on them. In General, this series has been for me a challenge. If I can? Do you dare? The work was difficult, it was scary: what happens and what doesn’t. Still, we very rarely shoot a movie. Now the main goal for me is a return to the stage of the Bolshoi theatre.

Now my wife is friends with all of our Actresses, especially Melikovoy Nastya and Masha Shumakova. When I go on shooting somewhere in another city, they are always going at our house, and it’s very funny”.
“The only negative aspect associated with “Sweet life”, is that the series is over, and some part of me took it with him. The same emotions the second time already not to worry, and a little sad. And when I get in the draft is easier, I really miss how it used to be in “the Sweet life”. In the next five years I would like to try yourself as a film Director. Now I have done a lot of paintings, and as an actor you know what I miss in a particular project and that I would have to modify, as Director.

When the bar is set so high, when you realize that organic is the existence of acting in the frame and work with a cool Director, how beautiful it can all be removed, then the rest is not good.
