Without mom nothing would have happened
Once in one of his interviews, given already in a period of incredible popularity, Danila said that he was grateful to his mother, actress Nadezhda Zvenigorodskaya, for all her wise decisions. He noted that without it there would be nothing: neither fame nor movie roles. He, being a naughty hooligan guy, could simply squander his strength completely on another and achieve nothing in life. Born on May 3, 1985 and growing up in difficult times for the country, Danila Kozlovsky tried a lot of things in search of himself in this life: the ballet lyceum from which he was expelled as an unpromising dancer, a school with in-depth study of Spanish, a children's drama school.
An imprint on the character of the future actor was also imposed by the situation where the mother had to bring up three children alone, because Danila’s father Valery Kozlovsky (professor of advertising at Moscow University of Culture and Art) left the family. Soon, however, Danila and his two brothers, Egor and Ivan, had a stepfather Sergei, who was a military man. It was he who later helped arrange the three sons of Hope in the St. Petersburg Cadet Corps.The Kozlovsky brothers were expelled after only six months, and Danila was able to fully complete the entire course and graduated with honors.
