Alexey Loktev: biography
Alexey Vasilyevich was born in Orsk on December 30, 1939. When the boy was four years old, his family had to leave his hometown and go to Moscow. The fact is that the head of the family was offered a job there. So our hero became a Muscovite.
The father of the future actor worked at the factory, and his mother was an actress of the theater. It was from his mother, Alexey Loktev, who took over the love of acting. From a very young age, he dreamed of becoming a theater artist, and later on a movie.
From school to college
In Moscow, Alexey Loktev went to study at a school and drama school at ZIS (today ZIL). The boy played a variety of roles in different roles and genres.At 17 years old, the guy was first involved in the filming of the youth film "Different Fates". The role was episodic, but still rooted the boy in the thought of becoming a professional actor. It seemed that he had experience on the stage and the heredity of the actor, but he was not accepted at VGIK.
Mom was upset for the child, and dad, on the contrary. He never supported his son and wife in choosing a future profession. Thus, Alexey Loktev, an actor inside, became a turner outside the factory where his father worked.
A year later, the guy again goes to take exams for admission to the institute, only this time he chose GITIS. Alexey Vasilyevich successfully passed the qualifying round, and finally became a student by the profession of dreams.
Wake up famous
In 1962, Alexey received the coveted diploma and became an actor in the Pushkin Theater. He alternated his work in the theater with the filming of films, so he was a revolutionary from the Kuban in the film "The Black Gull" and Gena in "Goodbye, Pigeons".

In the cultural capital of Russia, he is immediately recruited into the drama named after Pushkin. Salaries of actors, and almost all other people, have become very small due to the restructuring that has begun.
