Here Rozhkov was remembered by the audience for Lensky’s roles in Eugene Onegin and Alyosha in The Brothers Karamazov. However, Denis did not feel full satisfaction from the work – neither in creative, nor in material terms. There were
not enough roles, because of the meager payment, we constantly had to look for additional earnings. These were typical for the actors “Dedmorozovskie” matinees and corporate parties. In addition, Denis worked on television as a correspondent, at one time he was seriously involved in video editing – he even wanted to make it his main profession.
All this time, the actor dreams of serious work in the cinema. However, the directors, noting his outstanding appearance, did not hurry with the proposals. Debut was the role of digger in the series “The Blind.” But it was only two small episodes. Then, in 2003 – the same episodic role of the bandit named Limon in the series “Next”.
