Biography[edit | edit source]

Appearances on TV shows[edit | edit source]

Due to contract problems on Steepler's side, Suponev wasn't able to host The New Reality anymore, therefore, the company launched a new show called Mir Dendy, which, however, was a lackluster. Suponev appeared live on this show only once, as a host of the Killer Instinct tournament's finals. Outside the live-action TV, Suponev stars as Douglas's father in 1997's adaptation of Ray Bradbury's Dandellion Wine directed by Igor Apasyan.
