Everyone is different, each is unique in its own way, and Vladik had his own outstanding value - he was magical,some special mystical property to attract attention to his own person. Vladik - was able to be silent on the screen. And it is very difficult! .. Everyone has learned to speak naturally. The great Russian actor Mochalov could be silent on stage for a few minutes, and the viewer could not tear himself away from him ... And Vladik Dvorzhetsky had such a magical property. He owned the rare gift that we call "inner silence."

December 1, 1999 Yevgeny Dvorzhetsky's car at the intersection collided with a truck. The actor died instantly. Mystical coincidences in the fate of two brothers led many to say that their family was pursued by an evil fate. After their death, friends and fans looked for omens indicating their premature departure. They said that soon after the death of Vladislav, his younger brother was predicted by the fortune teller to die the same way, stopping him on the street. However, Yevgeny did not take such accidents seriously: “If a gypsy at Kiev station approaches me today, when I buy cigarettes and have a naughty mood, I give her a hand, she stares at her and quickly says:“ Go, go, go! ” I was guessing twenty years ago. And I forgot everything except one ... From that time I have not seriously given my hand. Scared? Just as comrade Lear said, the king is: “We are not all powerful in our coming and going.” This is not our business. ”

However, the creative dynasty of Dvorzhetsky was not interrupted with the death of the brothers-actors - Yevgeny's wife Nina became a famous actress, playing the role of Regina Markovna in Valery Todorovsky’s legendary TV series Thaw. The daughter of Eugene and Nina, Anna, followed in the footsteps of her parents and became an actress, having played in the series "The Obstacle Course" and "The Lover of Private Investigation Dasha Vasilyeva." Anna Dvorzhetskaya is skeptical about what is written about their family: “People talked both about mysticism and the terrible fate that hangs over our family. There were even some programs on TV ... And for us this is not considered to be any fate. So these figures coincided. But they died completely differently. And no one knows why it happened. There are no legends in the family. ”
