Children-Phenomena: Young Talents and Their Ways

History knows many examples when, after a loud fame in childhood, an artist, without passing the test of fame or money, practically disappears from the radar of the public with age. And vice versa: an early start and a successful career in the future. There is no regularity as such.

It was during the driver’s activities that the short, but “recognizable” role came to him in the film “Operation Happy New Year”, then another episode in the movie project “Streets of Broken Lights” and finally a breakthrough.
