Danila Kozlovsky. There are no proven theorems in life …
Today, fans will be able to appreciate how he managed to present a classic character in the modern world, because the film Dubrovsky (2014) appears on the screens of the country. He graduated from the cadet corps in Kronstadt, plays the viola, loves ice cream and takes pride in quitting smoking. He started in the movies (more precisely on TV). Continued – in the theater. And then he was able to combine business with pleasure, becoming a participant in a charity project that allows you not to ask for money, but to earn it for those who are vital …
Danila V. Kozlovsky.
He was born in Moscow in early May 1985. In addition to Danila, the Kozlovsky family had two more sons – the elder Egor and the younger Ivan. And together it was a real gang. The boys did not differ in a calm disposition, and their cute childish pranks at times were worthy of a separate page in the police records. Actually, for the same reason, the brothers did not stay long in one school – they were simply expelled for behavior (including from a school with in-depth study of the Spanish language).
Danila decided on his future quite early – in 1994, he happened to appear in the series “Simple Truths”, where he actually played himself – a bully. It was decided, but apart from the bravado of “becoming an actor”, things did not go.
As is usually the case, at some point, patience breaks out at the parents and the time for decisive action replaces the conversations. It happened with the Kozlovskys – at the family council it was decided to send the eldest and younger to the Kronstadt Naval Cadet Corps. Danil was not discussed, but … He himself begged his parents to join the brothers.
It’s funny, but of all three, “by tradition,” they did not expel him only. And in 2002, Danila graduated from college with honors: “I understood what work is, what is will, energy and excitement …” The teachers predicted a brilliant military career for him (and his parents hoped that their middle son would continue to move in in this direction). However, military training helped the young man to get together and clearly build a plan inside himself of what and how to do in order to become an actor (after all, a childhood dream has not gone away). And contrary to the persuasion of his parents, Danil entered the St. Petersburg Theater Academy for an acting and directing course.
Thanks to her teacher, Lev Dodin, Danila already while studying begins to work actively in the Maly Drama Theater in St. Petersburg. His first role was Edgar in the play “King Lear”. It should be noted that the actor was so inspired with confidence in his teacher that under no circumstances is he going to change the MDT: “This is a fundamental issue for me …”
But the series, or rather, serial films, have become quite familiar to the actor. His first serious film with an amazing cast – Alisa Freindlikh and Yevgeny Mironov – can be considered a film adaptation of the novel by Dina Rubina At Verkhnyaya Maslovka (2004), where Danila happened to play the artist Modigliani.
In a fairly short period of time, the young actor managed to achieve heights that many can only dream of: he has done several dozen successful films, cult roles, work in Hollywood, in the end. He is loved by the press (he even persecutes to some extent), he has a lot of fans both among the audience and among his colleagues. But with all this, he considers it his duty to help people as much as he can. That is why – without advertizing – engaged in charity work, participates in various projects, including the animated series “Flying Animals”.
He doesn’t believe much when people around him “glorify” his beauty, because he still lives with the feeling that he is a chubby child with diathesis like he was in childhood. He loves ice cream, but tries to limit himself to this. Considers as his best rest a good book and a trip to the cinema. He has not yet defeated his inner demons, but rather successfully learns to negotiate with them …
