Oleg Tabakov about Evgeny Mironov:
Genya Mironov — my fellow countryman. He and I are answerable to Saratov! Great human domesticity with which the soul of this young man overfilled, is the best protection from leading position. I am sure, that he will never become neither a conceited person, nor a theatrical vulgar person. He still should determine for itself, what is real in that puzzle of a life around us. It is important not only what people carry today, but the real move in art. And this move has one direction: in depth of a person. I wish Genya to realize this opportunity up to the end. The life brought him popularity across all Europe, he worked with great director Peter Stein (Oresteia, Hamlet). Now it is high time to stop and to think what to do further. Last roles played at our Theatre and outside of it, show Genya as significant actor. He adds all the time new skills to the favourite profession. There are a lot of tempting projects, but he should save up and develop his talent. And this will be the main project of his life.
