Interview with Yevgenia Kryukova
Yevgenia Kryukova: “I would like my daughter to ever have a brother or sister”
- Did the experience of the parent family affect the construction of your own?
I’m an only child, and I always missed my brother or sister, so I do not want to guess how it will turn out, but I would like my daughter to have a brother or sister.
Thanks to the doctor who led my pregnancy, I did not have any problems, as she foresaw the slightest nuances of changing my state of health and prescribed certain preventive procedures. And during pregnancy I had a lot of free time and I began to do what I like: for example, I made wooden furniture for a country house. Everyone was sure that this is a sure sign that I will have a boy.
But … Dunya pleasantly surprised us.
- Your first impressions, when did you see your daughter?
For medical reasons, I was given a cesarean section, so I did not see the baby right away. But maybe that’s why I did not have a feeling that the child is my property and I can dispose of it as I want. From infancy, I perceived my daughter as an independent person who has her own opinion.
And now it is very important for me to communicate with Dunya in the mode of dialogue. So many new things you learn and you get an opportunity to look at the situation from an entirely new angle.
- Who helped you in the first time after giving birth? Do you have a nanny and what did you do when you chose her?
I think that it spoils the relationship between parents and children very much. In my opinion, when a mother loves her work and gets positive emotions there, she and the child can give more warmth and love. Of course, there are women who, after giving birth, genuinely lose interest in their profession.
But in my case this did not happen. And I do not regret that Dunya can attend my premiere at the theater or at the cinema.
I would like my daughter to be proud of me.
- How does Dunya relate to your popularity and how do you fill the lack of communication with your daughter?
Dunya goes to my premiere, if I have not been for a long time, I understand that my daughter is bored, so I can take her to the theater on the day of my arrival. Although Dunya often tells me that she will break my theater, because because of him we spend so little time together.
I understand Duni's feelings, and when I come home after filming, if they were in another city, I let her not go to kindergarten and stay with me.
Very rarely, as a rule, no. This is due to the fact that the appearance on the set of Duni distracts and, in addition, requires the transportation of half of the Moscow house to another city.
Therefore, I try not to get home in Moscow more often during long filming.
- Dunya played in the theater and acted in film with Eldar Ryazanov. Are you thinking of growing an actress out of a girl?
