Nikol – Where does Vlado live? What does he do in his day?

Vlado – I live in Sofia, I think this is known information. My days are dynamic and varied. I am filming, rehearsing, performing on stage, travelling, writing stories for my website, eating, shopping, driving a car, paying my bills, giving interviews, and so on.

Eli – Thank you for showing the painting! It has a profound meaning. What do you associate it with? What did it provoke in you?

Vlado – We are talking about the painting of Atanas Matsoureff in Interview 6. I liked this painting for the details. When I saw it, I wondered what kind of person you would be to see and recreate the reality in this way. Being a perfectionist is the only way to separate yourself from the masses and to be noticed by them, to cross the limit of the excellent scores.

Zlati – What do you work?

Vlado – If you ask about the chatbot, he is my Viber secretary and he collects questions and provides information about me. If you ask about me, I generally work as a carpenter in a workshop in one of the distant neighbourhoods of Sofia. I took the craft from my grandfather.

Ani – You have a unique charisma on stage. Last time I saw you in “Spinach and Chips”, but I did not get an autograph because I was in a hurry to catch a plane to London. When will you be visiting here in London?

Vlado – I often go to London. To perform on stage there – it will not be too soon, at least for me. I like to travel for fun, not for work. I have travelled for work for years. It is enough.

Kristina – Tell us some interesting story from Survivor. Do you have a favourite Survivor participant? What do you remember about him/her? What do you think of Svetlin Zanev?

Vlado – There are many Survivor stories. There was a difficult case during my first Survivor in Dominicana on Samana Island. This island is a national park with endangered species and animals under special protection. There was also a rare type of pelicans. Our participants struggled for their survival and did not care about such things. They caught one such pelican and roasted it, then ate it. You have no idea what kind of problem occurred between the government and the producers. Then Evtim Miloshev fixed everything with his qualities as a producer.

I can say only great things about Svetlin Zanev. A real keen and devoted person who gave everything to this game, he put a lot of emotion and strength. I will not hide that he was one of my favourites and I was his fan.

Nelly – Who offended you and what right?! I do not believe there are such people!, but still there are idiots everywhere, and valuable people like you are rare – unfortunately!

Vlado – Well, valuable is too strong, I am too far from perfect. They often offend me, perhaps – I do too. That is life, and we are such people – the most predatory and filthy animals.

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞

Subscriber – Hello, Vlado! I am a big fan of yours, so I want to ask if you have a favourite rock band? I will share with you that I adore Queen, but I want to know the other people’s favourites too (happy)(happy)(happy)

Vlado – I do not have a favourite now, I do not have time for music. Before, I liked Aerosmith and Ugly Kid Joe.

Subscriber – What kind of sport are you into

Vlado – Mostly swimming. I am not into anything else. In the morning I do special exercises for the waist problems.

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞

0898745937 – Hello I also have no question just greetings and admirations for the down-to-earth and human behaviour, goodwill and charisma. I wish you many successful projects bless you.

Vlado – Thank you!

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞

Elena – Are you jealous? If so – what would make you jealous?

VladoYes, I am jealous. This is part of my character and my way of thinking. I want people to trust each other and not lie.

 ۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞

Eli – Do you watch “The Day of the Father”?

Vlado – Yes, I watched it and I liked it very much. Another series made in Bulgaria, which is a reason for pride. I liked the story, the actors, how it was shot, the directing, the colours, the editing decisions – everything. Big Bravo for “The Day of the Father”.

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞

Pavlina – What do you most like to do?

Vlado – I like to attend to my hobbies in my spare time. That is what I live for. To take care of my dogs, to ride a motorcycle, to dive, to travel, to photograph. These are the most pleasant hours of my life.

Diana – Is there anything about the people you cannot swallow?

Vlado – Yes there is. Lies and hypocrisy. Lying is endlessly disgusting, because it is mean. We are people who can talk and if you do not have the simple respect to tell the truth to a close person, then you are coward and small-minded. Anything could be cleared out in a conversation, as long as there is a chance for conversation. Anything could be forgiven. Hypocrisy is also unpleasant. I prefer people to tell me everything to my face. I know that not everyone can like me and what I do. I prefer to be told this instead of being showered with false affections.

Subscriber – Hey, Vlado, if you are Bog (Bulgarian word for God) why are you going to die soon?

Vlado – He is Bot, not Bog (God). That is why he will never die, never.

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞

ANDREA – Are you married? Do you have children

Vlado – Yes, I am married. Unfortunately – twice. I have two beautiful children.

Petya – In which movies does Mr. Karamazov play?

Vlado – At the moment in two TV series. Where are you from? Write a personal message.

Subscriber – Zachary Baharov came to Cologne, Germany, with “Chamkoriya” on March 17th. When can we expect you here as well? Come on, think of something! It would be great.. 🙂 Greetings!

Vlado – I do not like to travel with theatre productions. Most times it is performed on non-theatre spaces. Thus the performance becomes a compromise. For now I do not foresee such trips.

Zlatina – What advice would you give to someone who wants to ride a motocross bike, but has not yet done it?

Vlado – I have a motocross bike and I cannot learn to ride it. My advice is to go to school, someone to teach you, for example, Angel Karanyotov. It is very dangerous with such a bike. You injure yourself a lot, there is enormous risk. Learn to ride it well, in the right way – with a teacher, a professional.

Beni – Hello! For the first time I catch myself being impatient about watching a film! You are great, you exhale professionalism! For the first time I watch a world-class BG film! Godspeed to the red carpet :)! PS: And I am NOT saying that because I am from Smolyan ……..! 🙂

Vlado – I am very glad. “Devil’s Throat” is a very valuable project for me. Smolyan is a great town!

Victor – What is his mother’s name?

Vlado – Julia

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞

Emilian – Hello! It is not exactly a question, it is rather a request. I would like to get an autograph card from the actors of “Devil’s Throat”. This series has become a real inspiration for me and I would like to have a piece of it. Thank you in advance! I wish you only success! PS: If I have to, I am willing to pay for the card. Have a nice evening!

Vlado – Follow “Devil’s Throat” Facebook page. They often give away cards there.

Hristina – Tell me in confidence, who is the killer in Devil’s Throat

Vlado – The killer is Donka, though it might sound unbelievable to you.
