Actor Yevgeny Tsyganov: biography, filmography, personal life and interesting facts
Among the modern ministers of the theater and cinema there are more and more multi-faceted, diverse, deep talents, a vivid example of which is the actorEvgeny Tsyganov.
Evgeny Tsyganov was born on March 15, 1979 in the capital of the Soviet Union. The family, far from the acting profession, still somehow influenced the choice of the boy. Parents of the future actor were employees of one of the Moscow research institutes. Yevgeny has an older consolidated (by mother) sister Irina Tsyganova. Since Zhenya was a late child (his father at the time of birth was 41 years old), he was allowed a lot.
The music school, which Eugene was not without difficulties, but nevertheless graduated, became the first step on his creative path. When the director came to the "muzykalku" who was looking for children to perform children's roles, the future actor Yevgeny Tsyganov was among those selected as well.In connection with the first successes, the father intuitively gave the child to the Taganka Theater, where the boy spent four years (from 1988 to 1992) playing various children's roles.
Music lessons have made their contribution, and at the age of fourteen Eugene becomes a member of the group A.S., and after 4 years he creates the group "Toast", playing music in the style of Brit-pop. Passion for music absorbed the guy with his head, and he even dropped out of school, which he later graduated from as an external student.
Meanwhile, "Toasts" are gaining popularity, successfully performing with concerts in the capital's clubs, and even record the first album. But in the early 2000s, something went wrong, and the group broke up. So ends the career of a musician, and begins the biography of the actor Tsyganov Yevgeny Eduardovich.
In 1996, Eugene was enrolled in the course of the Shchukin School, where he studied for a year, and then changed his mind. In 1997, he entered the directing department of RUTI (now GITIS). Mentor Eugene was Peter Fomenko, who, after graduation, took the actor in the troupe "Workshop P. Fomenko."

And even the “Toasts” group, once created by Yevgeny, was partially revived.One of the songs of the group can be heard in the play "Workshop P. Fomenko" "Olympia." However, the main dream of the actor: to conquer Hollywood is still ahead.
In 2016, a multi-part historical saga “Sofia” appeared on the screens, telling about the life and love story of the Byzantine heir. Tsyganov in this series tried on the role of Ivan the Third, for which he specifically had to grow a beard. It was a kind of adventure, because few could have imagined Eugene in the role of the king. But as soon as the actor tried on a caftan and entered the frame, all doubts disappeared. As a result, she and Maria Andreeva (the leading woman) made the perfect duet.
Charismatic, though not contact, Eugene always aroused interest among the representatives of the opposite sex. In his student years, he was associated with the now famous actress Olga Stashkevich.
