“We felt that in the filming of a movie about Pavel Korchagin something did not go. It Directors A. Alov and V. Naumov nervous, delayed the work, often started to look at our set. I felt they look at me, and soon, and in fact invited me to try out for the lead role in their film. Not only am I not surprised their offer, but on the contrary, blatantly and arrogantly replied, that he was looking forward to it that I should be playing Pavel.
