They had their own world. On January 10, Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff will be reunited in their last home for their funeral, which will be held in the Church of the Madeleine in Paris. Dead six days apart from the aftermath of the Covid-19, the most famous twins of the small screen have forever marked the world of television with their program Temps X, but also, their fascination with science, the big bang, or again, the origin of the world. Very spiritual, they had many plans, including meeting Pope Francis, before falling ill, they who never woke up after being placed in intensive care.

Enigmatic, Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff were ultimately personalities who talked a lot, but little was known about. And for good reasons: since their beginnings, the twins have shaped identities based on affirmations, which today are denied by their little sister, Véronique. “It was necessary to be a little circumspect with them, to know how to sort in the declarations”, she thus confided to Gala, she who also does not know where their many physical changes came from over the years, on which they are still remained vague, even silent, in particular manipulating the media to make believe that they were guinea pigs. And that’s not the only far-fetched claim they would have made.

Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff: their incredulous sister Véronique

“I was surprised that they say they have Asperger’s autism or that Grichka claims to have an IQ of 180. I took that as a way of writing their legend,” said Véronique, who explains that she remembered a sentence of his brother Grichka, who affirmed that he had “created a character”. Enough to feed the legend of the Bogdanoff brothers, people with an “atypical” lifestyle according to Igor’s ex-wife, Amélie de Bourbon-Parme. Brothers with an extravagant lifestyle, who were “always broke” according to their relatives, but who imposed a real rigor in their way of life, in particular concerning their diet.
