Ivan Yankovsky at the presentation of film awards lifted the veil of the secrets of his personal life. The artist told how dramatic the filming became in the film about the confrontation between Anatoly Karpov and Viktor Korchnoi. True, it all ended with a happy ending. In addition, Yankovsky also received a bonus acquaintance with Diana Pozharskaya, whom he later married.
“It was one of the most difficult roles that I played. There was an equator for the filming of the film” World Champion “, we were filming a scene at the headquarters of Anatoly Evgenievich Karpov with Karpov’s team. And suddenly, having filmed the scene, the film director Alexei Sidorov says: “Let’s go and talk” .
We go down to a wonderful garden, and he turns to me: “I don’t like you. You are not Karpov.”
I asked: “Why am I playing it then?” He replied, “I don’t know.”
I replied: “Who knows”? He told me: “I don’t know” …
Of course, relations with Alexei Sidorov on the court were difficult, this happened to me for the first time. After that I cried. I felt pain, bitterness and shame
The only thing left for me to do was to go to my trailer, sit down and rearrange the pieces on the chessboard and learn the combinations that I had to play.
Making my way through wild pain and tears, I moved these figures and now tried to feel my place on this earth, in my profession, in life.
And suddenly Alexei Sidorov passes by my trailer, looks at me in tears, stops and says: “This is character!” And leaves.
“At that moment, everything somehow worked out for me,” Ivan said. – I want to say thank you to colleagues and actors, the whole team. Thanks to my mother, father, grandmother, my wife – beautiful Diana. We met her in this picture. And since then, life has only gotten better.
Recall that earlier Diana was married to director Artyom Aksenenko.
