Kirill Suponev: biography, family, personal life, career on TV, date and cause of death
Kirill Suponev, the son of Sergey Suponev, who went down in history as a TV presenter, who became the face of Russian television for children, and by tragic accident who died at the age of 38, became interested in what his famous father was doing. It would seem that the choice of a future profession for a talented guy was obvious. However, the life of Suponev Junior was, after the life of his father, crossed out by evil fate, ending even more prematurely and sadly ...
The family in which Kirill Suponev was born in 1984 was, one might say, a storehouse of cultural and creative traditions.
Grandfather Eugene worked as an actor in the Theater of Satire with his grandmother, Galina Vladimirovna, who was a pianist and accompanist in the orchestra of the same theater.
Cyril's parents, as well as his uncle and aunt worked in television.
As Kirill himself recalled, he grew up a spoiled and capricious child. He did not want to wear a school uniform and did not wear it, skipped classes, smoked and called his peers. His behavior was so provocative that the boy was even kicked out of the second class. All this lasted until Kirill was transferred to the school where his famous father Suponev Sr. was studying at the time. The authority of the father prevailed and, despite the fact that his academic performance remained unsatisfactory, questions about the boy’s behavior ceased.
Kirill from an early age proved to be an extremely talented and sociable child. Since childhood Suponev Sr. attracted his son to the filming of television programs. So, once Cyril became the leading TV program "Everything is possible." However, the boy was guided by the stellar influence of the father under the pseudonym Kirill Venopus (the Suponev name written opposite).
When Cyril was ten years old, his parents broke up. This was such a serious blow to the child that he carried the seal from this event through his, alas, short life.
After graduating from school, Cyril Suponev followed in the footsteps of his father, graduated from the faculty of journalism at MGIMO and, having received a diploma, returned to television by an already trained specialist.
Is it difficult to enter MGIMO? In the same place, the main thing is a creative contest where I wrote how we did “Everything is possible” ...
Kirill's father, Sergey Suponev, was a famous leading and producer, who played a significant role in the development of domestic children's television. The TV programs created by this amazingly kind and charming person were entertained and taught. They were able to educate several generations of young TV viewers, who still, almost two decades later, remember these programs and are grateful to Sergey for them.
Sergey Suponev began his career on television with a utility worker in 1980. However, after six years, he began filming his own plots for the youth TV program "Up to 16 and older."
In 1989, Sergey became the host of the program "Marathon 15", where he showed himself from the most worthy side. In this connection, already in 1992 he was appointed as the host of the new “Star Hour” children's program by Vlad Listyev himself. This show made Sergei really famous.
Due to random circumstances, Sergey Suponev died tragically in December 2001, when he was only 38 years old.
Kirill Suponev worked for some time in television as a director, engaged in the development of his own projects.
At the same time, Suponev Jr., in spite of the opportunities and friends of his father, was not at all eager to become a TV presenter. Rather, on the contrary, he purposely remained in the shadows, once having refused even from the most popular TV program “Star Hour”, which was offered to him after the death of Suponev Sr..
Further development of a career in television, to which Kirill was so eager at first, did not happen. The young man, for whatever reason, seemed to be disillusioned with his formerly beloved business.
As Cyril admitted, he did not want to fulfill someone's will. I wanted to come up with something and do it on my own, regardless of anyone’s opinion or position.
Kirill’s whole changed attitude to this topic was once expressed in his single phrase:
Television is a drug, and I don't want to feel like a drag dealer. I myself will never sit behind the TV ...
The strongest upheavals in his life - the divorce of parents and the death of his father - left a deep imprint on the personality of Kirill Suponev, turning him from a sociable and smiling man into a rather closed society, as if stuck in his grief.He tried to avoid any communication with journalists; therefore, it was rather difficult to find any information about his personal life.
It is known that in conversations with friends, Cyril did not conceal that he wanted to achieve a lot in his life. But then somehow suddenly stopped wanting. And not only to achieve something, but also to want something at all.
The young man was extremely demanding of himself. Any failure in the work, even the smallest, could lead him to depression for a long time - a depressed state of mind in which Kirill resided more and more often, and later almost did not leave him until the very end.
Kirill Suponev was quite active in music, was a drummer in the once quite famous rock band with the provocative title Romeo Must Die. However, it was not destined to become widely known and popular.
The last year before his death, Kirill Suponev lived in a civil marriage with the girl Anya, whom he met while studying at MGIMO. According to him, Anya taught him to be serious and responsible, opened for him the world of real cinema. The world of great directors - Tarkovsky, Fellini, Bertolucci, whom Kirill wanted to be like.
However, the guy himself did not want to become an actor ever.
Actors are hypocrites, they try on strangers on themselves, I would not like so ...
On the last day of his life, September 27, 2013, a young man asked his mother, Valery Suponev, to bring him to an apartment on Osenniy Boulevard, intending to pick up something from his personal belongings there, because that day he was going to leave with his rock band to St. Petersburg for a farewell tour.
Leaving, the son told his mother that he would return in a minute and you can not even turn off the engine. Cyril was not there, and in the end the woman left the car and went up to the apartment, where with horror she saw the lifeless body of her son in the loop.
There was no suicide note, nor any sign of any struggle.
The death of Cyril Suponev at the age of 28 was as unexpected and premature as the death of his father.
A roommate remembered him as a good boy with a kind heart ...
Cause of death Cyril Suponeva
Due to the absence of any signs of violent death, the criminal variant was immediately rejected. The main version is considered suicide.
There were several reasons for such an act - from severe depression, which turned into a mental disorder, to a borderline state in which the deceased could be.
However, these guesses are not confirmed.
Cyril's mother - the only person who communicated with him literally a few minutes before his death, denies the presence of any visible signs of mental disorder or the influence of narcotic substances.
In tragic practice, it is not uncommon for a person to commit suicide just a few minutes before he is found hanged. As if the unfortunate was hoping that it would all be some kind of attempt to step outside and they would manage to save him.
Anyway, the real reason why this young guy decided on such a step, we will never know.
Almost all photos Kirill Suponev smiles. Beautiful, kind, charming face. Curly blond hair. Very much looks like his father at this age.
