When Yuri was still young, his father was transferred to a place called Tayturka that Usolskaya area director of a large farm. Father, though, and was a director, and his thoughts are not allowed to do something for the public expense. Therefore Yura grew as all the guys - digging potatoes, fished, hunted, had later engaged in beekeeping, animal husbandry and a carpenter, and built: the Father raised him - God forbid. Physically punished. In general, the educated not glove.
The first teacher, Yuri Stepanov Elena Lazareva remember that the future is not an actor is particularly diligent in study. It was hard to get to do something uninteresting. A favorite is the lesson Jura was reading. His retellings of reading the whole class listened with open mouths.
In Tayturke Jure met Anatoly V. Absandulev - boxing coach. He recruited a group of boys and taught hunting, fishing. Survive. Stepanov come from a family of hunters and fishermen, but his father was lost at work. And in the House of Culture of the guys are doing in the circle amateur - danced, traveled with propaganda team: The first teacher in this case was director of the House of Culture Olga Firsova. Jure like they do, but he does not remember that dreamed of becoming an actor.
According to his countrymen, the first role was in a comedic Stepanova miniature. He was a master of all trades. Should have seen everything, as he danced a quadrille, and sang - not hear enough!
And parents want to become a son п+я-п+я-п+п¦п¦п¦п+п+. His father was a director of a large farm and had hoped that his son would study in Agricultural Institute.

Among the theatrical community of the disciples Peter Naumovich lay down some 'Fomenko' - creators, different from other. For some time now 'Fomenko' out of the aesthetic of the underground, becoming heroes not only advanced theater. They are happy to invite removed.
'Cinema - a contagious thing, - says Yuri Stepanov. - Not because they pay the money, although it is a pleasant and important fact. At first, I work on the set seemed a terrible.

No. All went into the room, had a long conversation, joined up. And only then held a demonstration: one, two, three, four or five times. Then he said that everything found, it is time to work. When Stepanov Vadim Abdrashitova starred in 'Time dancer' at the end of filming the actor knew what experience he gets, that puts in your luggage, and it certainly does not compare with any money. Such directors as Abdrashitov Danelieya and showed him how in Soviet times to make a film. There was the extent, consistency, desire, strength and opportunity to do better.

There were no allowances for the fact that this series, and here you can do anyhow. "

And he said that the souls of people like our shtrafbatchiki not find solace. They have become a bargaining chip. Mourn them there was no one. Another priest said that through us, through this picture, they can still get a consolation. I take those words to strengthen the idea that our film - it's the right thing ... '
