No, Gregory did not quit the theater, but the performance with his participation was temporarily removed.
Meanwhile, Antipenko starred in several series. In "The Talisman of Love" (2005), he happened to play the main villain - the thief Plato Ameline. And this role, despite all its negativity, brought him the first fans.

As the actor admits, he does not at all look like his hero: “I had a fate not at all like Andrei — my life patted me a little, and that’s good. Andrei has wealthy parents, a brilliant education, good expensive cars. ” But then Gregory got carried away by his character, tried to understand and figure it out. As a result, the actor very organically fit into the role.

Work in the cinema brought Antipenko not only fame, but also a loss - the actor had to leave the Et cetera theater. “I myself did not leave the theater, I was fired. I just did not agree with the characters with San Sanych (Kalyagin. - Approx. Aut.). But I have no regrets at all. I didn’t really have roles there. But two years spent in theater walls are a good practice. "

And here, on the set, we discovered each other. We have an absolutely official romance.
