Actor Alexander Lykov is known to many. It was he who played Casanova in the television series Streets of Broken Lanterns.
He has a son, Matvey, whom he practically does not know in Russia. But he is known abroad as a supermodel.
The guy could continue his father's work. So, when he was 5 years old, he played a cameo role in the television series "Thomas Becket". But he never thought about a career as an actor.
Matvey had another passion - foreign languages. He went to school with a linguistic bias, where he studied English and Spanish. The guy mastered them perfectly, which allowed him to work as a tutor for some time.
After graduating from university, Matvey went to the United States on the Work & Travel program to continue working there. However, the migration service denied him this. To survive, Matvey worked as a courier and cleaner.
One day, a guy accidentally visited one of the modeling agencies in New York. There he was noticed and taken as a model, as his thin physique suited them.
Matvey's career in the new industry developed rapidly. He has worked with Gucci, H&M and Jil Sander. The guy had contracts with European, American and Japanese modeling agencies.
He is now 31 years old and lives in Paris with his wife Jessica and daughter Sienna.
Despite continuing his modeling career, the guy continued to play in the movies. So, in 2015, he played one of the main roles in Timur Bekmambetov's film "He is a Dragon".
According to Matvey Lykov, he is interested in working as an actor, director and producer. He is glad that he is achieving success in a new business for himself.
