It was difficult to get into this theater for his performances, - recalls the artistic director of the Vakhtangov Theater Rimas Tuminas. - I, still a student, was invited to play in the play as an actor. The play was staged by the Ukrainian director Babenko. Something didn’t work for us, and she invited her fellow countryman [Viktyuk] to look and suggest something. He came, energetic, began to get into the exact situation, into the role. He chased me for several days. ”
