A whole era of domestic television is associated with the name of Pavel Lyubimtsev. This is a talented actor and TV presenter, teacher and writer. He raised the genre of television entertainment and educational programs to a new level, bringing to them a special zest of light irony and intellectual fullness. At the same time, all the currently implemented television projects of Pavel Lyubimtsev are surprisingly easily perceived by a wide audience and draw in even people who are far from travel, culture, history and nature of the world around them in their interests.
Childhood and youth
Pavel Lyubimtsev is a native Muscovite. Next year, one of the most charismatic intellectuals of modern television will turn 59 years old. His childhood passed on the Arbat. He was born in a family of music teachers, teachers of Gnesinka.
The first nine years of the life of the future actor, writer and TV presenter were spent on the Arbat. And now Pavel Lyubimtsev rarely favors the Arbat with his walks, referring to its current appearance with a fair amount of skepticism.
When the boy was nine years old, the family moved to an apartment on Mira Avenue. After graduating from one of the Moscow schools, Pavel Lieberman, such is the real name of the presenter, entered the Shchukin Theater School. After itgraduation, he was invited to the St. Petersburg Academic Comedy Theater. N. P. Akimova, then still Leningradsky. The next three years of his life were closely connected with the city on the Neva.
Pavel Lyubimtsev himself recalls his admission to Shchukinskoye as the biggest success in his life, saying that he owes this joyful event entirely to his mother. It was thanks to her efforts that interest in the theater arose, which later grew into a life calling.
How Lieberman became Lyubimtsev
The appearance of his pseudonym, the author of "Traveling Naturalist" is obliged to the director of the Leningrad Comedy Theater Pyotr Fomenko. The times were such that in the theater, and not only in this, Jewish surnames did not cause enthusiasm, and a pseudonym was a creative necessity. As Pavel Evgenievich himself later told about this, initially he wanted to become Lyubimov, translating his last name from German - “mein liber”. However, Fomenko offered his own version, arguing that there are many Lyubimovs, but there are no Lyubimtsevs yet. Especially for an actor-comedian, the surname was the best fit.
The way to TV
The story of Lyubimtsev, a TV presenter and traveler, begins back in 1996. A fellow student at the Shchukin School, Mikhail Shirvindt, called him as the author of texts in his Live News program. Soon, under his supervision, a short column “Did you know that…” was published.
His talent as a storyteller or reader, as Pavel Lyubimtsev prefers to call himself, quickly gained popularity andresulted in the idea of creating an author's project.
The first issue of Pavel Lyubimtsev's program was released on September 12, 1999. As the author and presenter later admitted, when preparing the issues, he was tormented by guilt for a long time. Having the opportunity to travel the world, he would rather prefer his sofa, and for many people this is an impossible dream. The feeling that he took someone else's place in this, he tried to compensate by giving all his best in colorful stories, not sparing his skill as an actor, erudition, knowledge.
Naturalist's Travels has been airing on various TV channels for ten years. For them, Pavel Lyubimtsev was twice awarded the most prestigious TEFI award. However, he is skeptical and hostile about both the award and his popularity, considering television to be just an interesting hobby.
At first glance, the creator of the "Naturalist's Travels" really resembles the eccentric scientist Paganel, at times as if descended from the pages of a Jules Verne novel. On the screen, a good-natured fat man in funny glasses and a recognizable hat. A little distracted, a little dandy, always in white. In life, an open, straightforward, sharp person in his statements.
The pursuit of fame is not about him. Perfectionist Pavel Lyubimtsev believes that the main thing is to do your job well. The ambition is to make it the best. Dreams of becoming a star are the lot of idiots, as Pavel Lyubimtsev once said in an interview.
Following the Naturalist's Travels, other projects have appeared. In 2005, a short eight-week author's project "Old Poster" was released, dedicated to the activities of outstanding personalities of culture and art of the past. Theatre, cinema, stage, artistic life appear through the prism of biographies and works of famous artists, actors, musicians, singers.
"Urban Journey" is the last large-scale television project of Pavel Lyubimtsev. If the Naturalist's Journeys were devoted to wildlife, then in this series of programs the emphasis was placed on the traditions, culture, way of life and everyday specifics of different states. Under the vigilant gaze of the tireless traveler, both the architecture of world capitals and national cuisine, the peculiarities of local communication, weekdays and holidays, fashion, music, entertainment and much more, which make up the life of a capital city, fell.
The project could not surpass the "Naturalist" in terms of the duration of its on-air life, even compare with it in this. However, programs from this cycle were released regularly for five years, until 2011.
In recent years, Pavel Lyubimtsev has been participating as a host in various programs. He is also actively engaged in literary and pedagogical activities.
On screen and on stage
Television programs brought Pavel Lyubimtsev universal love and fame. However, in the theater and in the cinema, he remains no less in demand. Perhaps, before him, not a single Russianthe actor could not boast of the same success. And in all areas of its activity. Pavel Lyubimtsev does not boast about them, although he could well. Films with his participation are released with enviable regularity. Young Lyubimtsev played his first role back in 1979 in the film Franz Liszt. The last film with his participation was released in 2015.
He acted as an actor and as a theater director. In particular, in the educational theater of the Theater Institute. Boris Shchukin, he staged nine performances, collaborated with the Taganka Theater and the Moscow Academic Theater of Satire. After an almost twenty-five-year break, Pavel Lyubimtsev returned to the theater as an actor. He played at the State Academic Theatre. Vakhtangov, in the play "Mademoiselle Nitush". He does not refuse experiments either, which is proved by his cooperation with the new theater "LA'Theater".
Despite the serious he alth problems that have plagued him in recent years, Pavel Lyubimtsev continues to work actively on television, collaborate with theaters and engage in literary activities.
