Denis Rozhkov is an actor and TV presenter. He became famous for his role as Denis Antoshin in the TV series "Capercaillie", which was awarded the TEFI prize in 2010 as the best work in its genre. Works at the Stary Theater, the Moscow Independent Theater and the St. Petersburg Baltic House. He acted as a host in "Russian Lotto" and "Culinary duel".
Denis Igorevich Rozhkov was born on July 3, 1979. In 1993 he received a certificate at school No. 1056. As a child, he wanted to become a policeman, attended a circle at the local department. He had a notebook that was divided into three parts: alcoholics, murderers and thieves. I wrote down my observations in each department. Denis's grandfather was a district police officer, so a book was taken from him, in which he signed on how to conduct interrogations correctly, to catch criminals.
At one of the contests, the reciters were noticed by the head of the theater studio "Mirror" NP Ganysh. This was one of the reasons why the young man began to get involved in acting. In the studio there was an acquaintance with Pavel Maikov. He played with him on the small stage, and a few years later he entered the Moscow Art Theater School. At the final concert, he was noted by Oleg Tabakov.
Denis from an early age wanted to become an actor, so one of his attempts was to enter GITIS. However, the first time I did not succeed in becoming a student. In 1998, the young man finishes his studies, begins to take an active part in theatrical projects. Some time later he worked at the Russian Realistic Theater.
Today Denis Rozhkov is a happy husband and father. He met his wife Irina in the theater, where he worked on assignment after the institute. Fell in love with her at first sight. The girl worked as a makeup artist. Young people very quickly began to live together. For some time they rented an apartment or lived with their parents. With their own savings, they managed to buy an apartment only 12 years after the start of family life. The first years Irina was the only breadwinner in the family. In 1999, a son, Ivan, appeared in the family.
The artist often says that he was very lucky with his wife. She herself rotates in a near-actor environment, she herself is familiar with all the subtleties of work on stage. Therefore, in front of her, there is no need to make excuses for delays at work, especially when rehearsals end late at night. Irina also calmly refers to the interest of journalists in the person of her husband.
Creativity and career
In 1998, the actor did not receive an invitation from Tabakov to join the "Tabakerki" troupe, thanks to which he got into the drama theater on Perovskaya. There was a lot of work, but the salary was so low that Rozhkov had to earn extra money:
- set maker;
- leading on cooperatives;
- animator at children's parties.
The man took on almost any job, for some time he was even a handyman in a bakery, a waiter and an insurance agent. After working for two seasons, the actor quit the theater. The goal, to find work elsewhere, seemed almost unattainable - the actor was not accepted anywhere. Occasionally he performed in various creative projects, attempts to break into the world of cinema did not bring results.
After 10 years, Denis Rozhkov was invited to play the role of a tattoo artist in the crime-detective series "The Silent Witness". By this time, the young actor had already decided to quit his career, so he was trained as a video editor.
And in 2008 he received an offer to play in "Glukhara". A serious team has gathered in the project. At first, the relationship with Maria Boltneva, who played his girlfriend, was very difficult. Despite this, a sense of contentment came. Relations with Maxim Averin did not immediately improve, although now young people are friends.
For three years Denis worked without vacation for 22 shooting days a month. During the filming, I had to closely interact with the traffic police officers. The shooting took place at the present post, so the professionals gave advice and made comments. The actor notes that Denis Antoshin is his complete opposite. The only thing they have in common is a sense of humor.
In parallel with filming, he managed to take part in entreprise productions. The series brought immense popularity to the actor. He was actively filmed in various films. In the creative piggy bank:
- "Alien area";
- "Aiming at Love";
- "Carrier" and others.
Creative successes today
Today in the film career of the actor came a creative pause. The last project was completed in 2016. In 2017, Denis became a member of the Ithaca music group. In it, he plays the trumpet. The theatrical premiere with his participation in the leading role was the production of "The Master and Margarita" at Bulgakov's theater.
The actor travels a lot around the country with anti-prizes performances, for example, "Grooms" based on Gogol's play "The Marriage". In 2018 I traveled a lot across Russia. He informed the subscribers of the official account on Instagram about the end of the tour, where he posted a photo from the performance. The artist can also be seen in the new Russian web series "The Club of Anonymous Liars". The first show took place on 2018-17-10 on YouTube. The project was nominated for the First Russian Web Industry Award.
The only character that the actor would not want to play is Santa Claus. But Rozhkov does not exclude the possibility of such a reincarnation.
