Maxim Averin: “I formulated for myself the reason for their divorce as follows: they are tired of loving each other. The fact is that both Mom and Dad are very passionate, emotional, and temperamental people, and at some point, it became clear to them that it was impossible to be together any longer. The atmosphere around was becoming too electrified. So they got divorced.”

At the age of six, the future actor made his debut on the movie screen, starring in the cameo role of a dancing boy in the film “The Adventures of Count Nevzorov” (1982).

Maxim Averin: “I myself have already shot several episodes of Capercaillie and also promoted the third season. It’s great to start such a serious business among your own people when people believe in you. No one has ever reproached me for anything – neither for inexperience nor for overwork when involuntarily there was a need to extend the shift. On the contrary, everyone said: “Don’t worry, we’ll shoot everything as you need it.”
