Having received a specialized education in 1980, a certified actor, as they say, "thundered" into the army.
I had to serve in the army song and dance ensemble, which was quartered in the center of Leningrad. Back in his student years, Zarubin invented for himself the stage image of the gypsy Lariska. He so skillfully put on his "gypsy" make-up that even his friends did not recognize him. Sergei managed to show several of his numbers to the legendary Arkady Raikin. The master appreciated the work of the young actor. After the army, Zarubin was accepted into the troupe of the Satyricon Theater.
