Semyon, as portrayed by Armin Mueller-Stahl.

Semyon is the main villain from David Cronenberg's crime film Eastern Promises (2007). He was portrayed by Armin Mueller-Stahl.


He is an old patriarch and an important member of the Russian mafia known as the Vory v Zakone ("Thieves in Law"). He runs a restaurant as a cover-up for his criminal operation in London, which focuses primarily on human trafficking.

He is father of  Tatiana's daughter whom he raped her for many times


Semyon is not seen or heard of during the film's epilogue, which takes place several months after the main story, meaning he has probably been arrested for the rape of Tatiana.
