Theater and film actress, amazing woman, beloved wife, caring mother Rimma Zyubina told about her family, backstage life and shared the secret of eternal youth.
How do you manage to keep this childlike spontaneity and mischief, eternal youth?
I think it is hereditary. My dad was a military man, he had a cheerful disposition, was artistic, he loved music. He himself learned to play the accordion. And all our holidays were necessarily held to the music of the accordion. Even my father read us the poems of Yesenin. And my mother is very calm, patient and affectionate. People are drawn to her, in her house the doors are always open for guests.
You have an older sister. What is your relationship?
My sister Larisa graduated from the chemical department of Uzhgorod National University, she works at the Institute for Nuclear Research, defended her thesis. I am very proud of her. My dad always joked: "Once upon a time there was Zyubin and he had two daughters: one is clever, and the second is an actress."(smiles - Ed.)
What did you like about your childhood?
It was my sister who pushed me to creativity. We lived in Hungary. And Larisochka took part in the theatrical production “Cinderella”. I didn't want to be a Cinderella, but I was very inspired by the role of the stepmother or the harmful sisters (laughs - ed..). And I became the director of the courtyard of our military camp. Gathered all the children and put on performances. I also really liked ballet. And when we returned from Hungary to the Soviet Union, I signed up for a ballet (where they imparted aesthetic taste and culture) and a music school. Once I was given a book about actresses, and they all knew how to dance and sing or play a musical instrument. And I was going to my dream - to become an actress. Later, I worked on the radio, led concerts, participated in competitions of readers, was leading on television ...
How did the parents take the news that the daughter would be an actress?
Dad and mom were hoping that I would become a music teacher or a literature teacher. But still, when I said that I wanted to try, they supported me and trusted me. At the age of 17, I myself went to Kiev to enter a theater institute. I didn’t do it, but my mom really supported me at that moment, she found the right words that gave me hope and confidence.And I, so as not to waste time, decided to enter the Institute of Culture in Kiev. But a year later, I again received an offer from Uzhgorod from Stanistave Moiseyev (Now the husband of Rimma Zyubina - approx. ed.), it was already the second offer - work in the Transcarpathian Theater (before leaving for Kiev, I passed tests in several theaters). And when I weighed the pros and cons, I chose a job. And I graduated from institute in absentia.
Tell us about the birth of your family
My husband and I lived in a civil marriage for 4 years. And after that they decided not to make a wedding - but just to sign, even without witnesses, in jeans, without unnecessary formalities. And Stas and I are together for 21 years. Our first years are honeymoons. Our first quarrels began after the birth of a child. My psychologist friend said: “The birth of a child is a tremendous stress for the family. After all, you need to learn to live in a threesome. And besides, the woman is changing a lot. ” And when Dana was 3 years old, we left him with her grandmother, and together with her husband we went to the sea for three weeks. If you want to keep your family, you need to rest not only with the children, but together with your husband.
Rimma and Stanislav
Was there a disappointment in the profession at some period?
5-6 ago I really wanted to leave the theater. At the beginning of my theatrical life, it seemed to me that the actors are the inhabitants of heaven who speak only about the theater, live only for them. But later I realized that the actors are different. There are actors who carry the mission, such as Bogdan Silvestrovich Stupka. Every his appearance on the stage, every image is an event, it is a special energy. And there are actors who bring only themselves onto the stage. You look - and on the stage there is emptiness. Theater is an elite art. And each production should bear depth and meaning. Actors need to constantly evolve, "do not allow the soul to be lazy."
Is there a backstage friendship?
Yes, I believe in friendship. In the theater, we have excellent relations with Irma Vitovskaya.
What are your favorite movie roles?
I love to make movies. I really like this atmosphere. Favorite roles created with your favorite directors are “Female intuition”, “Treasure”, “Female robbery”, “The subscriber is temporarily unavailable”, “I am urgently looking for a husband”. Among the favorite directors are Dmitry Tomashpolsky (“On crazy love, sneiper and cosmonaut”), Anatoly Mateshko (“The Trumpeter”, “Shark”), Marina Migunova (“Lady Luck”), Mark Gorobets (“The Subscriber is temporarily unavailable”). Of course, I can not say about Oksana Bayrak.I was once asked: “Rimma, what about you with Bayrak exclusive? She's shooting you in every movie. ” Oksana even jokingly invented a status for me and always presents me like this: “Oksana Bayrak’s favorite actress”.
Working in a theater is different from working in a movie?
Theatrical roles are much deeper and more interesting. This is Chekhov, and Dostoevsky, and Shiller, and Ostrovsky. I love to be different, unrecognizable. I love both the lyrical “Little Mermaid” and the black comedy “The Fourth Sister” by Janusz Glovatsky (for the main role in the play “The Fourth Sister” Rimma Zyubina received the Kiev Pectoral Award - approx. ed.). Bogdan Stupka about my image in this performance said: “Rimmochka, you swim in your role, you swim.” Of course, his opinion was very important to me.
At what stage in your career was born the son Danil?
I considered myself an accomplished actress. I was 27 years old, and in the theater I worked since 19 years. But after giving birth, I was in no hurry to the stage. I was so interested in being a mom. My new wonderful role. Every day gave me incredible discoveries. I wanted to be with my son. Therefore, I agreed a year later for only one performance per week in the theater. At this time I found a nanny.I was very lucky with the nannies. They were intelligent and patient women. I came from the play, and my son showed me something done by hand — drawings, crafts, applications. It was very nice and nice. (Our nurse Rita at 3 years old taught Danya to read the words).
Rimma with son Danya
How did you develop your son?
Danya was engaged in figure skating for 2 years, the ice helped us get rid of bronchitis. And he graduated from music school in the class of percussion instruments. He himself chose the drums. And although at first I was surprised, I still supported my son. We were very lucky with the teacher - Elena Mikhailovna Gaeva, it was an amazing woman, a talented musician. She always smiled and radiated a glow.

Will Daniel follow in the footsteps of his parents?
He has creativity. He acts in film, duplicates films. More recently, he wanted to engage in computer technology, well, but now while he is on the path of choice. There is still 11 class. In any case, Danya is a humanitarian. He himself must decide. This is very important for men. I am in no way going to put pressure on him.
Rimma and her son
How do dad and son spend their free time?
I remembered a case when I was at a rehearsal, and dad stayed with his son. When I returned, I found the following picture: Dad read the play, and the son at the door threw pieces of paper into the slot and said: “The axis is up to you. Axis to you priishov poshtar. " They had fun, and I got angry at my husband. (laughs - approx. Ed.)When the son was born, Stas dreamed that they would soon play football together. But these games can be counted on the fingers of one hand (smiles - approx. ed.)
What is happiness for you?
This is the absence of misfortune.
What would you wish yourself?
Mira To each and every one.
