Representatives of the acting profession often find life companions in their own circle, but such marriages as those of Yegor Beroev and Ksenia Alferova are very rare in the acting environment. They have been together for almost 20 years, and their family is called one of the strongest, most harmonious and happy. Only once there were rumors that this union cracked when both spouses took part in the Ice Age TV show. What happened during the filming, and how the couple was able to overcome the crisis - further in the review.
From childhood, they both felt a great burden of responsibility, because both were successors of acting dynasties, and they had to prove all their lives that their families could be proud of them. True, in childhood, Ksenia was sure that her father, Alexander Abdulov, was married to her mother, Irina Alferova, for 17 years. Only in adolescence, Ksenia learned that her parents got married when she was 2 years old, and that her real father was the Bulgarian diplomat Boyko Gyurov, the first husband of Irina Alferova.
Abdulov raised Xenia as his own daughter, she received her patronymic from him. Therefore, having learned from her mother the secret of her birth, she was seriously scared - but not for herself, but for Alexander Abdulov. She immediately ran to him and began to assure him that he was her dad and that she loved him very much. Until now, Ksenia finds the features of the actor who raised her. The only thing she could not put up with was the suffering that Abdulov caused her mother, because he could not be called a faithful husband. When their marriage broke up, Ksenia promised herself that she would never marry an actor, because representatives of this profession always have too many temptations.
Ksenia grew up behind the scenes and got used to theatrical life very early. Her favorite place in the theater was the props shop, where the girl “staged” her performances, playing all the roles in them at once. But she herself did not want to be an actress. In addition, Ksenia graduated from high school in 1992, when the crisis in cinema began, and on the advice of her mother, she entered a law school, and upon completion of her studies she completed an internship at one of the best law firms in Britain. However, the genes took their toll: in the end, Ksenia quit jurisprudence and entered the Moscow Art Theater School.
The audience learned the name of the Beroevs back in the 1960s, when the founder of the acting dynasty, Vadim Beroev, became famous after starring in the film Major Whirlwind. In a marriage with actress Elvira Brunovskaya, he had a daughter, Elena, who followed in his footsteps. She did not act in films, but became known as an artist of the Theater. Mossovet. Yegor's father was actor Vadim Mikheenko, but he was not involved in raising his son - his parents parted shortly after his birth, and Yegor bore his mother's surname. He first appeared on stage at the age of 7 and since then he had no doubt that he would also become an actor. After graduating from the Schepkinsky School, Yegor Beroev became an actor at the Moscow Art Theater. A. Chekhov and began acting in films.
Both Ksenia Alferova and Yegor Beroev began their path to cinema with serials, thanks to which they met. Once the TV channel presented the series of the new season and arranged a press conference on this subject, which was attended by both actors. Yegor Beroev later said: "". And Xenia had to forget about the promise she had given herself not to tie fate with representatives of the acting profession. She then said: "".
In 2001, they registered a marriage, and soon got married. There were no guests at this celebration - their personal life has always remained personal, and since then they have always adhered to this principle. They also did not advertise the birth of their daughter Evdokia in 2007. Both Alferova and Beroev in interviews willingly talk about their work, but do not comment on intra-family relations. But once they still did not manage to avoid the hype around their relationship. When both spouses in 2008-2009. took part in the TV show "Ice Age", they were at the gunpoint of the press.
The figure skater Povilas Vanagas became Ksenia's partner, and the Olympic champion Ekaterina Gordeeva became Yegor's partner. These couples looked so organic, and in joint numbers they showed so much mutual sympathy, tenderness and even passion that this immediately gave rise to rumors about the spouses' novels. The couple of Beroev and Gordeeva became the leader of the project, the attention of the press to them did not wane, and when they were caught at a joint dinner in a restaurant, publications immediately appeared in all publications that the marriage of Beroev and Alferova was under threat.
At that time, journalists literally pursued the actors, and any manifestation of their emotions was immediately interpreted as confirmation or refutation of rumors about a divorce. Once, after a difficult number in the "Ice Age", Alferova burst into tears, and these tears were regarded as a reaction to her husband's betrayal. Here Ksenia broke down and broke her "vow of silence" in the press. She told reporters: ""
None of the spouses commented on these rumors anymore, and on the summer tour of the Ice Age, Beroev and Alferova traveled in their car separately from all the other participants in the show and looked absolutely happy. 10 years have passed since then, and during this time not one of the spouses gave any more reasons for gossip.
Probably, their marriage turned out to be so strong, not only because both are engaged in the same business, they know how to hear and understand each other, but also because their views on life coincide in many respects. As Ksenia says, "". Alferova and Beroev created the I am! Charity foundation, which raises funds to support children with special needs. Ksenia admits that since she started helping children who need her, she has completely revised her values and priorities, learned to evaluate her time differently and finally understood what is really important in life and what is secondary. In 2018, Yegor and Ksenia became the guardians of a young man with Down syndrome - he was left an orphan, and they decided to take care of the guy.
With all the community of interests, each of the spouses continues to do what they love, and in their family it never came up that Ksenia left the acting profession and devoted herself entirely to caring for the family. She says: "". Their union is an exception to the rule also because there has never been any creative rivalry or acting jealousy between the spouses - they know how to rejoice at each other's successes.
Irina and Ksenia Alferovs were not the only examples of how talent and beauty sometimes seem to be inherited: Female dynasties of Russian cinema.
