Participant of the project “Voice. Children” Sasha Filin, the son of the former artistic Director of the Bolshoi theater Sergei Filin told “StarHit” how I missed lessons because of the show and what he spent his first honorarium.
Ten years Alexander Filin from birth accustomed to life behind the scenes. However, contrary to the hopes of her famous parents – choreographer Sergei Filin and dancer Mary Parwich – the boy decided to sing.
Sasha, why in “the Voice. Children” you chose the team of Dima Bilan?
Wanted to get to him. Even imagined that he would become my mentor. And so it happened! I’m really happy. Bilan is one of my idols!—
In addition to Dima’s songs what hits you got on your player?
I like different directions: can and listen to rock, pop, and jazz. Favorite artists mostly Western: Michael Jackson, OneRepublic, Queen. Russian – Pelageya, Agutin. When he sang in “Fidgets”, was fortunate enough to speak with the orchestra named after Oleg Lundstrem. To sing to the accompaniment of a live orchestra is impressive.—
Always wanted to be a singer? Or, like many boys, dreamed of being a doctor, an astronaut…
I have had many different desires. I remember wanted to be a filmmaker and to make movies. Even set the date of the premiere and everyone was invited. Then I thought of becoming a spy or a scout. Still, the music is closer. Since childhood, I sing always and everywhere! Now every week in the Studio “fidget”. In the future I dream to create a musical group.—
Mom and dad give you some tips before performances?
Parents always encourage and inspire me with confidence. Sometimes prompt, how correctly to behave on the stage. Sometimes, for example, come up with along the way. When they are in the room, I feel calmer.Dad’s comment: “We are trying to strengthen his faith in himself! Speak to it in the first place have fun then the audience will love it. But, in order perfectly to come to this self-awareness takes practice and daily work.”—
After the first issue of “the Voice. Children” you became a real star – do you even fan groups in social networks appeared…
Yes well that you, I’m the star? To me this is still far away, many things to learn. It seems to me, there is always something to strive for, even if you have already reached a certain level. It is important for me to feel the support of family and friends – it gives confidence. As for the emergence of fan groups, of course, pleased with the attention and interest in what I do.
The school asked for your autograph?
No. While only asked to get the autograph of Dmitry Nagieva. We have a great school, friendly class. I remember when I went blind auditions, all congratulated. The guys promised to cheer for me and more, constantly share impressions esters. It’s nice that they believe in me.—
Had to skip school because of the performances?
Happened. Not to say that much, but the discipline suffers. Trying to catch up fast. I’m a high achiever – in the diary straight. I hope to stay.Comment mother, Mary Parwich: “Yes, sometimes have to miss school, but in this case we are trying to take jobs home. Sometimes, of course, not enough time at all. Lessons are often done in the car, in the breaks between filming. But while Sasha learns well, quickly grasps, I hope it will continue.”—
Sometimes parents pay kids for helping around the house or for getting good grades. For example, washed the floor – received 50 rubles. The top five in the diary – 100…
To be honest, I not so hot. Sometimes vacuum can, well, to wash the dishes. Recently, on Shrove Tuesday, helped grandma bake pancakes – it was fun. For excellent grades in the quarter before had received a “prize”. As a rule, its size depended on dad’s mood. First, we agreed that for every good grade I “pay”, and for two and three – penalty. But some time later radicalisation that pace they will go bankrupt. Now do not pay.Dad’s comment: “Frankly, Sasha never asks for remuneration, enjoys presents, surprises. Sometimes encouraging them, but not according to any fixed rule. Money out of a Bank that mostly spends on sweets is a very loves them.”—
But most have had to earn?
The first salary I received three years ago, the voice of the animated film “Zack and Quack” for the channel “Disney”. On first paycheck bought all of the gifts to my parents a huge basket of fruit and berries, and his younger brother Sergei toy. Myself have not forgotten, bought the game disc for the PlayStation, which long asked parents. In General, much of my salary is not enough.
What kind of gifts are usually presented to parents?
Made with their own hands. Mom on March 8 gave a postcard with a Mimosa, she was as alive and she loved it – she even wept. And dad’s birthday made crafts: pine cones, cardboard, colored paper and clay made a family of owls. So far the whole family is at the cottage and all happy.—
You always busy playing football in the yard time?
If the weather is good and there’s a possibility my brother and friends, of course, run to ride on skateboards and bicycles. In the cold and rain, I love the house to play computer games. LEGO – another passion of mine.—
It’s hard to be heir to famous parents?
No. I’m proud of my mom and dad. Together every free minute. Of course I do sometimes, when parents are late at work. But I always feel their care and love.
