So Many People, So Many Hobbies.

Do you know what a hobby is? A hobby is what you like to do in your spare time. Hobbies differ like tastes. The most popular hobbies are collecting things, photography, playing musical instruments, computer games, drawing, listening to music, dancing, doing sports and others.

Nowadays many new hobbies have appeared. A lot of people are fond of hunting, but not with guns. They enjoy “hunting” the sea animals and fish with a camera. Some people really enjoy diving. Do you know, gardening and growing flowers, especially roses, is the most common hobby among Englishmen? Very often hobbies help you choose your future profession.

Rolan Antonovich  Bykov was born in 1929 in a  family of an  officer  and an actress of the theatre. Rolan was a very rebellious boy at his young age. Rolan loved theatre as much as his mother did. “I came onto the stage when I was four years old for the first time and I have never

left it since then”, Rolan said. He wanted to become a poet, a writer; he liked to perform on the stage in his childhood.

He had big roles and small parts but his each appearance on the screen had a great influence on the audience. One of his best works was the film “Chuchelo” in 1984. It was a film about teenagers and their relationships, about truth and lie.
