The role of the charismatic chefs Canopy from the TV series “Kitchen” is brought to Sergey Lavygin popularity. For several years, the actor starred in several major film productions and also participated in several theatre productions. Today on channel STS starts a new season of “Mom” where is ONU of the roles played by Sergey. On the eve of the release of films on the air “StarHit” talked with Lavigine. The actor has told about the interesting situations that happened with the team while working on the project, and also admitted that the birth of a son, Theodore greatly changed him.
Sergey, the new season of “Mom” you play Romonica, which can be described by the word “henpecked”. It is fashionable to blame modern men: say, aren’t infantile, so women have to shoulder everything on yourself. How do you feel about these conversations?
Once in the Internet I saw a comment: “You fools, do not understand, in fact, Rum is the most perfect man in “the Moms”!” So, whatever was said, try to name the man who fulfills all the desires of a woman, henpecked. It’s the dream of all the ladies (smiles).—
Flashed even information that you got in a fight with actor Yuri Kolokolnikov… I Hope that’s just for the movie?
It was unequal forces: Yura six – foot guy, and I meter with a cap, so this stage can not be called a fight, and beating. But seriously, when I first tried on the camera body-motion. She firmly grabbed my chest that it was hard to breathe. But I endured not long.
We are currently shooting another project – the second season of “Hotel Eleon”. You find it difficult to switch from one series to another?
When work is a pleasure, it is not difficult – just rebooted and forward. Thus it helps tried and tested on the set of short memory by learning the text, took the stage to teach the next. In the new season Senya waiting and new opportunities for profit, and the price paid for these new features, and of course, the pregnant wife Marina. The couple and up to her an interesting situation relationship was enchanting, and now Senya definitely won’t miss.—
Now the theme hotels on the rise, was the TV series “Hotel “Babylon”, film “Hotel “Grand Budapest”. Watched?
Only saw the movie and I can say that for me is a completely different story. First, “Hotel “Grand Budapest” – feature film, and, secondly, it is a surreal, and we have a serial sitcom with elements of dramedy. Our project is more about life, about people, so “Eleon” – a more current version of the hotel.
How do you feel about the fact that in recent years food has become a kind of fetish? Now flourishing cooking shows and channels, removable series about chefs…
I like that the food is necessary for the functioning of the human body, and also brings pleasure and aesthetic joy. Why not? So I eat with gusto, but the pictures of food on Instagram don’t post.—
In the TV series “Hotel Eleon” a Ukrainian TV presenter Olga Freimut, which, according to the story, came to check in, the hotel is an obvious reference to Helen Volatile. Do you approve of this kind of show?
Like it or not, but people like to look at the so-called “scandals, intrigues and investigations”, to watch people in acute circumstances. And glows to the limit, and manifest an unexpected human qualities. It is a passion, and from the point of view of television, select the correct course. And with success, as the saying goes, do not argue.—
After you have your role you do not come up with the idea to open in Moscow own restaurant?
Maybe someday, but as yet such ideas arose. I like what I’m doing now, and do not really want to devote my life to other professions.—
And in restaurants you might give a sample of something delicious?
Periodically treated to a compliment from the boss and are often treated as their own, which is very nice. Once in Prague, the restaurant on Wenceslas square, we were approached by the chef and said, “I watched the show, take from me a compliment.” It turns out that our show, he was advised by friends-Bulgarians.—
When they say “chef”, then there is the image of the hero of Victor Barinov. And you have Association?
In our school, the company was a friend who just became a chef – from childhood he loved to cook. And, of course, I imagine, first of all, it. Actually, I think, in the culinary art, as in acting, without a call is not enough.—
Suppose that there are people who have not watched a single episode of “Kitchen”, “Hotel Eleon” and “Moms”. Which of these series do you recommend to see first and why?
I think we should start with the first season of “Kitchen”, after the third season to break off, so be sure to see the movie “Kitchen in Paris”. And if you get tired of the “Kitchen”, switch to “Mom” a break and will certainly return to viewing the “Kitchen”, and then “Hotel Eleon” (laughs).
In the series you play for a couple with wife, actress Anne of Begovoy. How did you find working with your wife?
There are definitely plenty of advantages. For example, at home you can learn along the text. In addition, there are bonuses to producers. You can carry the actors on one machine, to settle in the same room in a hotel, or to allocate one room for two.—
In one interview you admitted that I prefer my mom’s kitchen. And like your wife?
I was lucky! Like when Anya’s cooking, especially soup, and don’t like it when released performances, because then it from morning to night, rehearsing in the theater and she had no time to prepare.
Recently you became a father… Felt a change after the birth of a son, Theodore?
I became sentymentalna. But the birth of a child covers all the events in my life. On Thursday, the fourth at half past three in the hospital number four was born Fyodor, named four letters. I still don’t remember, maybe the room number was also four…
When you load a movie you still have time to go on stage. Do you plan more time to devote to the theater or you are not interested?
I never abandoned the theater, for me it is important. I always wanted to play in Mtyuze and to work with such great Directors as Henrietta Yanovskaya and Kama Ginkas. But twelve years have passed, and there was a need to move on. Now there’s “Players” – the play at the wonderful play of Nikolai Gogol, where, incidentally, plays and Roma Polanski, my colleague on the series.—
You seem like a sociable and cheerful person. And there are days when sadness overcomes?
Of course, there are no people without a bad mood. The main thing is not to spoil their mood of others and remember that this is temporary and will soon pass. And if you want to speed up the process, work out – very helpful. For example, you can drive in football or Cycling.—
About you they say that you are an avid motorist…
I love to travel by car. I love cars, but seriously: be sure to do a test drive, sometimes more than once – I’m not only must ride, but also to assess the external data of the vehicle and the interior. Still, in addition to the need to move, want to get aesthetic pleasure (smiles).
