The Boutique Creative Director 22 November 2019

Part of project “Tireless People under 40” Georgi Panchev – age 34 Supported by NIVEA The first thing I heard about Georgi (Joro) was that he is an odd and sulky type of a person. I had to find a very good artist (creative designer) for important projects we had. I wanted a really good […]

Wings of Desire 31 October 2019

Part of project “Tireless People under 40” Hristo Petkov – age 39 Supported by NIVEA The first thing I associate Hristo with nowadays is chess or FIFA on his phone.

Part of project “Tireless People under 40” Peter Miloshev – age 7 Supported by NIVEA   I like very much Nikita Mihalkov’s movie – “Anna from 6 to 18”. That is why I let myself take a classic interview from Peter Miloshev. I never do it because I am not a journalist. I only write […]

BACK TO ROAMING AROUND THE WORLD 07 August 2019

Years ago, maybe six years, I was a very enthusiastic traveller. I travelled the world, the farther the better. I was led by curiosity about the people, the food, the smells, the climate, the different lives. The things I have experienced, the things that have happened to me! But all this suddenly disappeared. I had […]

Interview 8: The Audience Asks – Vlado Answers 28 July 2019

  Preslav – Romantic or evil characters do you prefer to play? Why? Vlado – I hate the most to play romantic characters. If it is a romantic in a comedy, to ridicule and mock him – ok. But romantic for real is awfully boring. I do not like that. I like extreme characters – […]

A Week of an Actor 26 July 2019

The life of the actor runs a little stranger than the lives of all other people. The differences are many. One of the positive ones is that we have a 2-month vacation, like the children. All children love vacations, actors – too. We do not ask for paid leaves, I have heard about them from […]

Ina – The Underwater Machine 15 July 2019

Part of project “Tireless People under 40” Ina Dimitrova – age 34 Supported by NIVEA I met this girl when I first hosted “Survivor” (“Expedition Robinson” in the Dominican Republic).

Powha 28 June 2019

Part of project “Tireless People under 40” Supported by NIVEA Powha – aged 39   The pursuit of perfection! Whoever follows this path will have a difficult life.

The Ignorance of the Pundits 14 June 2019

It is good that I have a site. It is very suitable for texts like the one you will read now. This way I stand 100% behind my words, they are genuine and as I want them to be. I rarely write explanatory stories, since I do not think I am competent on most topics. […]

The Story of Vlado Karamazov’s Stickers Vol. 2 06 April 2019

  It all started in February 2018. My friend Stoyan Haralampiev, whom I know about our bikes, told me that he was joining a young company that develops a chatbot platform. “What platform?” – I asked. He smiled and for about an hour told me everything, showed me such platform on Viber, and I got […]

Foods I Love since I Was a Child up to the Age of 40 08 March 2019

In two months I will turn 40. There will be many balance-sheets. But more and more I think about how much I miss my grandmothers and their dishes. How much I miss getting home after all day out playing games or at school, and a favourite dish is waiting for me at home. My mother […]

“An Ideal Husband” – The Production I Grew up with 04 February 2019

  On February 10th, we will perform the production “An Ideal Husband” for the 150th time. A nice jubilee and an occasion to tell you more about the production.

2018 – The Balance-sheet… 24 December 2018

I think it is good every year a person to make a balance-sheet of what he has achieved and what not, what silly notions he has had in his head. Even if it is just for the archive. I love when after certain time, when I have a different mind, to remember what it was, […]

Interview 4: The Audience Asks – Vlado Answers 06 December 2018

I will begin this interview with two very kind letters sent to my website e-mail. I could not help but publish them.

Diana Dobreva – Mistress of Minotaur and Golden Lady 05 December 2018

Part of project “Talented People” I do not remember when I met Diana. In my mind I have always known her. When we were at the beginning of our careers, crazy and under 25, we used to go to parties and entertaining evenings. Not often, but we did it. And always the same thing happened. […]

Theatre’s Night – The Initiative That is a Friend of the Theatre 17 November 2018

I write this text as a balance-sheet. For the Theatre’s Night initiative, which does for the theatre as much as no one else is doing in our country for this art. For six years already. It is something, not much, and not unique – there are many such platforms all over the world. On one […]

INTERVIEW 3: THE AUDIENCE ASKS – VLADO ANSWERS! 07 November 2018

Ivan Panteleev… True Man, Alert Man… 28 October 2018

Part of “Mission Maverick” project.   I heard about him years ago from my friend Radena Valkanova. She is very close to the person from the title. For me Ivan Panteleev was an image, he existed in the stories shared by Radena. From these stories he seemed nice. Radena really loved him, both for himself […]

Petya Kamburova – The adventurous girl 18 October 2018

Part of “Mission Maverick” project.   Petya Kamburova is 26 years old. This detail is essential to the story.

Alexandrina Pendatchanska … The One Who Makes Magic 09 October 2018

Part of “Mission Maverick” project.   I attended her solo concert at Hall 1 of the National Palace of Culture in 2016. It was full. She sang arias from her roles on the world stages. For each of them she wore a different dress that turned her into a shining point on the stage. The […]

Atanas Matsoureff – The Light Catcher 18 September 2018

Part of “Mission Maverick” project I have first heard of Atanas from the owners of a small town gallery. I like fine arts and I have told myself that every time I earn some more money I will spend some of it on works of art. I want to be a small link in the […]

“The Poets” of Interview.to 03 September 2018

Part of project “The Poets” of “Interview.to”   If there is something I am proud of about being a Bulgarian, it is our poets. Because they have written poems that are so good I am amazed how they have been created. Images of words that I do not understand how could have been invented, and […]

Photography in My Life 27 August 2018

Ever since I remember I was always loaded with photos and ever since I remember I’ve harassed my friends to shoot them. I want to tell you how this obsession with photography came to, the road I passed, and why I like doing it so much. I will tell you about all my cameras and […]

People of the Theatre – Part 2 26 July 2018

Part of project “People of the Theatre” Here continues the series where I present people of the theatre. Those who the audience does not see, but who are just as important to the theatre as we – the actors – are. Here I will present mostly people working in the National Theatre for many years. […]

Vlado Karamazov’s Stickers – A Story in Pictures 17 July 2018

Part of project “Vlado Karamazov and Viber” When I started making the Viber stickers, I very much wanted them to be my story in my work and partly in my life. I wanted to recreate a series of pictures related to my roles, including also my hobbies, and thus be a colourful story in pictures. […]

How I Became an Actor …continues 05 July 2018

After the comments in social media following the posting of my story “How I Became an Actor”, I thought that the story actually continues. The second part is maybe even more interesting than the first one. Here is the continuation, though I have already shared it partly in different interviews. The first part had a […]

How I Became an Actor… 18 June 2018

The story started when I was a little child and my parents often took me to a theatre play. From these performances I remember nothing but the emotions. I couldn’t imagine how this thing before me happens. Is it true or not? Is it real what I see? Do the actors read the text from […]

The Great American Ride – Part Seven 11 June 2018

It was important to get back on time and at last sleep well, because the next day we had the first performance, and in the morning, at 9 a.m. – a rehearsal. We calculated that for these four days we’ve slept total about 9 hours. We had become the happy somnambulists. Our great American ride […]

The Master of the Matrix 06 June 2018

Part of project “Talented People” I am very happy that life met me with Tony. He is the perfect man in the context of today’s reality. Smart, well-mannered, educated, delicate, sharp, sensitive and frank. When I communicate with him I feel that my profession has slightly deformed me, I have lost the delicacy in communication, […]

The Great American Ride – Part Six 29 May 2018

It was even harder to get up than the previous morning. We headed for the airport. We found a real hell there. After September 11th bombing, the security in US airports was insane. That’s why there were huge queues and crowds of people. So big, that you couldn’t see a free space. Each person was […]

The great american ride – Part Five 22 May 2018

We stayed in the tallest hotel in the city – Stratosphere. The rooms were really huge. Again, with beds like huge double beds, but just for one person. We left the luggage and rushed out because we wanted very much to bet in a casino. In ten minutes we were already on the main Las […]

Samurai – Always Ready for Battle 17 May 2018

Part of project “Talented People” Hristina Apostolova  This text is very important to me. I want to write it to draw a special attention to an important person to me, so important that I am worried now if I can do it well – concentrated and precisely to pour out my love for her and […]

The great american ride – Part Four 15 May 2018

The dawn was breaking. Zachary turned out not a very good navigator and we easily got lost. We couldn’t find the way to our first stop. I started to give, in my opinion, practical advice. The advice was just to ask someone. To me it seemed the easiest and sure thing. I couldn’t do it […]

The Great American Ride – Part Three 08 May 2018

    The departure day came. We were leaving for America on a flight to Paris and then to Los Angeles. At the airport, I started to grumble about how we could stand a 12-hour flight. I’ll go crazy inside. It’s whole 12 hours. I won’t be able to fall asleep, or anything. I might have […]

Evtim Miloshev, or an Anchor and a Watch Keeping the Spirit of Something Real 02 May 2018

Part of project “Talented People” There are people with whom life connects you. Just like that, without much wanting or looking for them. People with whom you go through storms and beautiful moments, through joy and troubles. But despite everything, they are around you and you help each other in this battle called Life. Evtim […]

The Great American Ride – Part Two 01 May 2018

We met very early in the morning at the US Embassy. I hadn’t slept, and it was cold, so I was shaking without being able to stop. We were all pretty concerned. It was time to get in. One check, then wait for the second check and wait again. Three of the colleagues approached first […]

The Great American Ride – Part One 24 April 2018

We received an invitation to go to Santa Barbara, CA Theatre Festival! We could not believe our luck. We learned the news at the Camp-site “Smokinya” while we were at Julian’s caravan. That was very exciting news, and for me – it was just a sensational one. Because I was convinced that I would never […]

About a Production and a Friendship 23 April 2018

For the small jubilee (the 50th performance on stage) of “God of the Carnage”, I’d like to write this text. And to explain how important it is in this acting profession of ours that things happen with like-minded and close people, with whom it’s a pleasure to live this life at all. When a project […]

The angel with the anaesthetics 19 April 2018

Part of project “Talented People” I met Dr. Zdravkov, or Bobby, as I call him, during the last Survivor in Cambodia. He was one of the doctors who took care of the team and the participants. This work in this format is extremely complex and you need to have complex qualities. It’s not enough just […]

MALAYSIA – part 4 – final 22 March 2018

Thankfully, there was a mineral water machine on each floor of the hotel. My water is provided. Depressed and discouraged, I decided to go outside, because I would be distracted and wouldn’t think of the hunger. I went out, but it didn’t happen. I wanted to eat every food I saw on the street. Dry […]

MALAYSIA – PART 3 12 March 2018

Day 4 I woke up with the thought that I’ll spend the day in Malacca. A small town about 150 km from Kuala Lumpur. I had seen photos of it and I liked it because almost all the buildings were in colonial style. It was really so. It turned out to be a colourful, picturesque […]

People of the Theatre – Part 1 08 March 2018

Part of project “People of the Theatre” I’ve been thinking how very rarely we talk about the people who service the theatre. About the departments in the theatre. Rarely anybody talks about them, and almost nobody has seen or shown them. They are very important to the theatre, and it cannot function without them. They […]

MALAYSIA – part 2 02 March 2018

         Day 2 The next morning Yavor and Lak accompanied me to my new hotel, I left my luggage there and in turn I saw them to their leaving. I remained alone in Kuala Lumpur. Now I could do whatever I want. I had already drawn a plan from Sofia, with numbers on […]

MALAYSIA – part 1 21 February 2018

Kuala Lumpur (the capital of Malaysia) was one of my dream destinations. I fell in love with the country from a documentary; also the towers appeared in every travel book. For me everything starts with something small. I see something or hear a story about a place, and it’s enough to form a dream to […]

The boys from Enhancv 12 February 2018

Part of project “Great Together” I really want my blog to be a place where you’ll meet talented young people who succeed and have achievements in their endeavours. People I know and people who daily inspire me with their consistency and tirelessness in pursuing their dreams. Because they are the good example and a source […]

The fight to be a “bear” 22 January 2018

I’ve been visiting London for the last several years since my brother and his family live there. These trips allow me to observe what’s happening with theatre and theatre system there – how does this machine work, how do actors, directors, theatre companies function, what’s the communication with viewers and how advertising works … This […]

Few rather different questions … and some quite honest answers 17 January 2018

At the end of December 2017 I started my website and among the first emails in my “office” mail was a letter from a girl. There were … questions in it. I was very impressed because these questions (in her opinion) would not be asked by the Bulgarian media. According to her, in recent years […]

Three Meetings in “Great Together” 10 January 2018

Part of project “Great Together” In the summer of 2017 our partners in many Grant’s projects suggested to me and Julian Vergov to do something nice and positive. To participate in a project to help people overcome a fear, achieve a dream, and boldly continue with their endeavours. We had to find them, provoke them […]

The Tree of Life 08 January 2018

  I’m very pleased to write this text because it takes me back to those months when we were filming “The Tree of Life” series. Right when Evtim (Miloshev) invited me, I realized this project will become very important to me. Because it tells about the Bulgarian history, because of my character and the colleagues […]

2017 – The Balance-sheet … 31 December 2017

I decided to draw a written balance-sheet of the year about to end in just a few days. Why? 2017 was the hardest and most difficult year in my life, but also one of the best. I always liked the number 7. When I was a child and people asked me what was my favorite […]

My hobbies 24 December 2017

  It’s a huge part of my character. I have always been obsessed with certain things, and until I get very good I don’t quit. Actually, these are my hobbies. They take up half of my life. I’ve collected everything. It was not just collecting but a passionate pursuit. It included crying, despair, lies and […]

The beauty we have to discover 22 December 2017

Maybe a person has to grow up and reach a certain age in order to discover the really beautiful things in life. When you are young you are busy with more pragmatic things. Your senses are occupied with pursuits of career, recognition, self-improvement, with more shallow thoughts and beauties. For me the real beauty is […]

Our travel to Dufftown, Scotland 17 December 2017

Starring: Julian Vergov Vladimir Karamazov   For a long time we wanted to visit Scotland. For the nature, the whisky and the Scottish people. And here came this travel. We were going to see everything we wished for. The destination was Aberdeen, and from there to the small town of Dufftown, with the oldest family […]

About cakes and brothers 17 December 2017

I graduated the Culinary School in Sofia, just to get my secondary education degree there. My brother Ivan graduated the same school but to follow his dream to become a pastry chef. I studied in Culinary School because there was nowhere else to go. I failed the math examinations after 7th and 8th grade so […]

Jeremy Irons in “Bristol Old Vic” and the “long journey” into a dream 17 December 2017

I can honestly say that by my criteria Jeremy Irons is absolutely among the top 3 best actors. I’ve seen all of his movies but I’ve never seen him on stage. And exactly theatre is the precise measurer of an actor’s qualities. Everything “shows up” there, and it gets clear if you have the energy […]
