Dokinematografichesky period of life
Maxim Drozd was born in Kiev in a family of actors and a childhood dream to become an actor. But he failed to do in high school theater after graduation, and the young man went into the army. Being a strong man (he is a master of the sport of boxing), Maxim went to serve in the Airborne.
After serving, Maxim Drozd yet fulfilled his dream - he entered the Moscow Art Theatre School in the studio Avangard Leontiev. Together with Maxim studied the future stars of the national cinema: Anastasia Zavorotnyuk Yegor Pazenko Dmitry Shcherbina.
In 1993, Maxim Drozd graduated from the school-studio, starred in several films, and ... As he says himself - took a sabbatical. When asked what he was doing during the almost ten years, the actor answers evasively: "Just watched the life, for me it was much more interesting than in the movies."
In recognition of Maxim - to return to his profession made case: went suddenly interesting projects. On the actor`s role influenced a strong constitution and the appropriate appearance (body Maxima riddled with scars, memories of its stormy past). In various films and television series he usually gets the role of criminals, such "charismatic villains." A striking example - Cain from the series "Cursed paradise" elite brothel hostess assistant Katherine (Evelyn Bledans).
Such a one-sided perception of its directors frustrated actor. He himself - a man of deep faith, and, therefore, before to agree on the next part asks the blessing of his spiritual father, and after the confession asks absolution not only themselves, but also character. "I have enough of their own sins, and here also the sins of the character - cheating, stealing, violence," - says the actor.
To work on their characters Maxim Drozd also fits with great care, even in trying to put the criminals have the positive qualities. For example, Cain from his "Cursed Paradise" original scenario was completely different person - a criminal with a black soul. "I did not agree with this interpretation of the role - the actor says. - He`s a military man who works in this vile business solely for the love of Kate! In the end, I persuaded the director to play a role as I see her. Positive and passionate man "
