On July 26, actor Alexander Loye turns 38 years old. He became a star back in his school years and was remembered by most viewers as the charismatic red-haired boy from Yeralash, the bully Vova Sidorov from a commercial from the 1990s. and the protagonist of the series "Next". At first, his acting career developed very rapidly and successfully, but then long pauses began in it. Where did the brightest and most charming boy of the 1990s disappear, what he is doing now and why, despite his loud popularity, he could not find personal happiness - further in the review.
Red-haired boy with a fiery surname
Sasha Loye inherited his unusual surname and fiery red hair from his great-grandfather - German Ernst Hugo Loye, who was born in Berlin, studied in St. Petersburg, was a translator and knew 11 languages. He met a girl from Vinnitsa, fell in love with her and decided to stay in Russia. They got married, he was baptized and became Vsevolod Evgenievich Loye. Translated from German, this surname means "fire", and it fully corresponded not only to Sasha's appearance, but also to his temperament - from childhood he was very impulsive, restless and funny.
For the first time, Sasha Loye came to the set by accident. His parents were programmers and had nothing to do with the world of cinema, but once, when they were vacationing with the whole family in the suburbs, a 5-year-old fiery red-haired boy with a face strewn with freckles was noticed by the staff of the film crew of the film "Dubrovsky" which passed nearby. The director invited the charismatic child to star in one of the episodes, and so Sasha Loye began his career in cinema.
After that, he was noticed by other directors, as well as the creators of "Yeralash", and Sasha Loye began to appear frequently on screens. It was only at school that his popularity irritated everyone, and his bright appearance caused a lot of problems. In an interview, he recalled: "".
Shooting in a movie helped him to get rid of complexes. Here his expressive facial expressions and noisy behavior did not cause any complaints - on the contrary, everyone around him admired his spontaneity and artistry. In the early 1990s. Sasha Loye starred in several issues of "Yeralash" and was remembered by millions of viewers as one of the brightest and most artistic characters. In addition, he became the record holder of the newsreel, taking part in 12 of its issues.
Surprisingly, even in his childhood years, Sasha treated filming not as a game, but as a serious matter that must be approached with full responsibility. In an interview, he said: "".
In parallel, his film career developed: in the early 1990s. Loye played the main role in the film "The Year of a Good Child", starred with Leonid Gaidai himself in his last film "The Weather Is Good on Deribasovskaya, or It Is Raining Again on Brighton Beach", performed several episodic roles in films. However, the greatest popularity was brought to him by the commercial for "Hershey-Cola" in 1993, where Sasha Loye appeared in the form of the bully Vova Sidorov. After that, they began to recognize him at every step - of course, because he looked on the street from every advertising poster.
As a teenager, Sasha played another major role in the cinema - in the film "The Adventures of Solnyshkin", and after that there was a pause in his acting career. For "Yeralash" he was already too adult, and for serious film roles - too young. In addition, the transitional age made itself felt: noisy parties until the morning and meeting girls interested him much more than studying and further career.
Nevertheless, he did not have any doubts about his choice of profession. After school, Loye entered GITIS, and after the 1st year he transferred to the Schepkinsky school. In his student years, he played another major role, which brought him a new wave of popularity. These were 3 seasons of Next, which at the beginning of the 2000s became one of the highest rated projects on television. Dozens of young actors participated in the casting for this role, but as soon as Loye appeared on the set, he was immediately approved even without auditions. On the set, the young actor had someone to learn from - his partners on the set were Alexander Abdulov and Nina Usatova.
Life after early glory
However, after that, downtime began in the film career of Alexander Loye. He himself said about this: "".
After a 3-year hiatus, he played a vivid role in the film "Stormy Gates", and then received only cameo roles. Having played in 2016 in an episode of the series "The Penalty", Loye disappeared from the screens for 5 years. Only this year it became known that 2 projects with his participation are in the production stage - the detective "St. John's wort" and the series "Smersh. Continuation".
Of course, today in a 38-year-old actor it is already difficult to recognize that charming red-haired boy from the 1990s. But, unlike many children who started acting early and learned the taste of fame at school age, he did not leave the acting profession, was not spoiled by star fever, did not derail his life after an early triumph, and did not remain an actor in the same role. He managed to go beyond the role in which he became famous, and his new film works will soon give viewers the opportunity to see how successful this reincarnation was.
Love lives for 3 years
The actor does not like questions about his personal life. It is only known that he has never been married and has no children. He admits that more than once he found and lost love, while his popularity and recognition did not give him any advantages. Fans were never on duty at his entrance and did not bombard him with letters. In addition, he always liked only the brightest and most beautiful girls, who even without him had many suitors.
Today he is focused exclusively on work and does not think about starting a family. The actor simply does not believe that at this stage he will be able to build a long-term relationship with someone. He admits: "".
Today, many of his colleagues in the newsreel are simply unrecognizable: How did the fate of the favorite actors of "Yeralash".
