The actor admitted that in his student years he was afraid to make mistakes.
32-year-old Nikita Efremov was born into a creative family. The actor’s father, Mikhail Efremov, is an Honored Artist of Russia, and his grandfather, Oleg Efremov, was awarded the title of People’s Artist of the USSR. Nikita, though not immediately, decided to follow in the footsteps of famous relatives. A year after leaving school, Efremov entered the Moscow Art Theater. In 2009 Nikita graduated from the course under the direction of Konstantin Raikin, taking part in the graduation performances “Silence is Gold” and “Woe from Wit”.
It is worth noting that Nikita still recalls his studies at the Moscow Art Theater. In an exclusive video interview “Around TV”, the artist told how one day because of Konstantin Arkadievich he could not control his emotions and burst into tears. This happened after Raikin threatened to expel the entire course.

“Now I remembered how Konstantin Arkadyevich said:“ That’s it, I’ll expel you all! ” I remember going somewhere to cry, I was very angry. I thought it was all over, “Nikita admitted, noting that he considers this episode from his student days a real failure. At the same time, Efremov admitted that while studying at the Moscow Art Theater School, he was often afraid to make mistakes, while it was at that time that he should have had no fear.
Note that on August 20, a new series “The Good Man” was released about the notorious “Angarsk maniac” from the director Konstantin Bogomolov. One of the main roles in this project was played by Nikita Efremov, and his partners on the set were Yulia Snigir, Alexandra Rebny, Dmitry Lysenkov, Andrey Burkovsky, Igor Gordin, Igor Chernevich, Ksenia Sobchak and others. By the way, before that Nikita Efremov and Konstantin Bogomolov had already worked together. So, in April of this year, the actor took part in the filming of the series “Safe Connections”, which Ksenia Sobchak’s husband shot for the START video service.

Let’s remind that the last three months have been difficult for Nikita Efremov. As you know, his father is now being held as a defendant in a criminal case of a fatal road accident. On June 8, Mikhail Efremov got behind the wheel of his car while intoxicated. Jumping into the oncoming lane in the center of Moscow, the artist crashed into the van of the courier Sergei Zakharov, who died from his injuries the next morning. Today, Mikhail Olegovich faces up to 12 years in prison, but he claims that he is not at all guilty. The official position of the actor and his lawyer is that on the evening of the fatal accident there was one more person in Efremov’s car, who was driving.
It is noteworthy that Nikita Efremov, unlike his sister Anna Maria, remained silent for a long time and did not comment on the terrible situation in which his 56-year-old father found himself. It took more than a week from the moment of the accident before Nikita got in touch and voiced his position on the story of the fatal accident involving Mikhail Olegovich.

It hurts me from what happened, “Nikita Efremov wrote then in his microblog on Instagram (the author’s spelling and punctuation are unchanged. – Prim. line.).
