Yasha was born in Saint Moscowburg, a snowy city in the communist Siberia. Once during his school vacations his parents took him to the sea where he got a nice tan and also met the contortion coach Marina, fell in love with contortion and joined her training camp.
Marina always dreamed of a contortionist son, but her own son was more into fashion and never cared for contortion. Yasha's parents, on the other hand, hoped their boy turns into a fashion model when he grows up. Marina immediately made a crazy offer to exchange their sons and surprisingly the offer was accepted by Yasha's parents. Her own fancy pancy son moved to them and Yasha moved to her house, where he lived ever since.
Marina herself was an adopted daughter of the Chinese wushu master Yan Feng Gu, who immediately took a liking to his replaced grandson. Whenever they visited him, Gu would never let Yasha leave without new amazing skills. Although Marina stretched her new son every day, it was Gu who helped the boy to level up with his wushu magic.
Beside contortion, Yasha was always enamoured by the ancient Greek culture and sculpture. He was very excited when he got the offer to play the Greek hero Jason in the new TV series, the role was basically written for him. He moved from home to a rented appartment in the city where the filming took place and he immediately fell in love with his new roomie, Andrzej Kowalczyk, who in fact played the main role in this series.
At first the two tried hard to be rivals or at least just friends, but since their characters' love was part of the plot and they had to play it well, it quickly crawled into real life as well. Now they pretty much spend every day together and hold hands in public and other parts in private 😏
