HOT VINCENT PEREZ
Vincent, Russian women adore you because they know you
as a hero and lover. And
now you appear in a different role. Aren’t you afraid to disappoint your
I hope to fascinate them very much. I like to add new colors to my palette. It
would be stupid not to use this opportunity to broaden my creative career.
In one interview, you said that you did not want to play lovers at all.
I thought about it a lot and I have even started to play in comedies.
Finally, I decided to raise my roles to a much higher level.
Weren’t you afraid that taking part in a Russian film could spoil your
On the contrary, I hope to show
a new side of my talent.
It has been said that because of this film you refused to take part in a
film of a French producer.
The information spreads very quickly. Well, there were some problems with
agreement in schedules. Now everything is
fine, and in the end, I decided that the Russian
film is the best choice.
So why did you agree to play Louis?
I liked the script very much. Vadim (Shmelev) gave it to me when he was in
France. He was selecting locations for his film there and one day he phoned
me and said that he wanted to meet with me. We met. He talked
to me about the script and I became
interested. Vadim spoke
about his next film so passionately, that I was astonished...
I longed to read the script.
The more I read it, the more I liked it. I rarely play the
villain. The producers do not usually offer me
It’s not your first work in Russia…
Yes. I have already acted in a film
by Pavel Loungine.
I worked with the
great Russian actor Armen Dzhigarhanjan. This experience was very
me. I came back home with lots of positive memories about
my encounters with
interesting people and I brought with me a little part of
the Russian soul.
Unfortunately, I do not have free time to visit my old Russian friends.
However, I really want to. I was getting on very well with Sergei
Your wife and four children are looking forward to your return home. Have you
bought presents for them?
Not yet. But I’d like to buy some toys for my children. I've
brought matreshka (nesting wooden dolls)
for them. Some of them were very funny so they were
suitable for my 3-year-old children.
What part of a Russian soul did you bring
home to France?
The Russians are very emotional and flexible people. They can immediately
go from having fun to serious things. We work very
seriously on the scene, but sometimes we joke...
How has Russia changed since your last visit?
Russia has been evolving. Moscow is a very comfortable and modern city now.
It’s illuminated. There are many shops and people are very fashionable.
Did the film industry change?
It seems to me that this industry is developing rapidly everywhere. Many
Russian films are shown all over the world.
What was the last Russian film you saw?
You work not only as an actor but also as a director. When will we see your
second full-length film?
I shot my second film but I don’t know when it will be shown. The film is
in English. It’s called The Secret", a psychological drama. First, it will be
shown in the USA and then in France.
It's been sold to some other
You have acted with many
famous actresses. What was it like to work with Anastasia
I adore Nastya. We get on very well. She’s like my Russian sister.
While we were shooting the film, we
were always together but we have to hit each
other. Nastya is a very charming woman and outstanding actress. Some sort of
chemistry appears when we work together.
You've worked with many
beautiful actresses. Who's your favorite?
A difficult question… I adore Sophie Marсeau. She’s my French sister. But
at the same time, I adore Nastya. She’s a fascinating actress. It is easy to
work with her because she is a pleasant person.
Are there any actors you would like to work with?
I don’t know the Russian actors very well, but I
like Robert de Niro and Anthony Hopkins. And I’d like to
work with Nicole Kidman. Of course, I
can continue this list.
