We publish selected excerpts from the actor’s interview


The tragic incident claimed the life of a famous theater director, artistic director of the Yaroslavl Drama Theater. Volkov Sergei Puskepalis. Mass audiences knew and loved him for his roles in movies (“How I Spent This Summer,” “Simple Things”) and TV series (“Cry of an Owl,” “And in Our Yard”). As an actor, he symbolized reliability. He solidity, soft and good power. Sergei Puskepalis has repeatedly given interviews to the television guide “Teleprogramma” (part of the publishing house “Komsomolskaya Pravda”). The last conversation took place in April, on the eve of the premiere of the film “Wings over Berlin” with the participation of him. We publish selected excerpts from these interviews.

About life

“No matter what happens, life itself is much more interesting and diverse than our attitude towards it. Life is a wonderful thing, in which there is a place for everything. And you should not dispose of him as you, beloved, want. So as not to disappoint his loved ones. If you have close people, there is someone to be responsible to, that’s great. And if not… You have to think: why?”.

On midlife crisis

“When I die, maybe outsiders will understand when I had this crisis. Everything is dissolved in the river of life. I cannot say: “You know, on March 18 of such a year, a crisis began for me and it ended on June 20.” There was something, probably… I don’t remember, I can’t fix it.

About family life at a distance.

The family home in Puskepalis in Zheleznovodsk, despite the fact that he often visited Yaroslavl and Moscow. With his wife Elena, they lived for more than 30 years.

“It happened to us, we still live. And we’re going to keep doing this. For someone else, it might turn out differently. The main thing is that people, well … should not tolerate each other. I have a hard time cutting. I’m so… not very sawed off! But I think it is better not to give reasons for this.”

How to deal with difficulties

“Communication and only communication. With good people. I think this is the most important thing. I don’t think one person can do anything alone. Being with someone who is happy right now. Be happy for them, and you already feel better. It is warm and keeps you warm. And just go clubbing… This is the road to nowhere.

about drinking

“I quit smoking, but I can drink with pleasure! You just need to do it beautifully, competently, in good company. To pour into the soul! Then it will be wonderful. Is about…”

About a complicated last name that everyone mispronounces

In theory, the stress falls on the first syllable, but it is easier for a Russian speaker to pronounce “Puskepalis” with the stress on the third. But the director did not correct anyone.

“My father didn’t do it, and I don’t. They used to call his father Puskepa foxes, he was calm about this. They call me Sergey Vytauto (Lithuanian patronymic tradition, on behalf of father Vitus. – Auth.). My father’s full name is Vitus Bronislavus Iona, but all his life he was called Vitus Ivanovich, he succeeded. If he said to me, “Son, correct the people on every corner,” I would correct them.

about art

“What’s the utility of arts? To overcome your fears of the world. It all started with cave paintings. All fears can now be answered. You just have to not be lazy to read, look.

About the Russian people

“Russian man was able to remain environmentally friendly. This is a person who has traditional values, without these additives, without this postmodernism. Perhaps it will seem to someone that this is banal or old-fashioned, unoriginal, but the Russian people have not lost their ecological essence, they have not yet been completely poisoned by the benefits and innovations offered to humanity. [Западом]. Maybe that’s why they consider us partly clumsy or some kind of eccentric. And for me, this is called an environmentally friendly person.
