Alexander Mikhailov as Kuzyakin
People’s Artist of Russia, beloved by millions of actor Alexander Mikhailov, who played Vasya Kuzyakin in the film “Love and Doves”, Victor Petrovich in “Lonely Dormitory is Given,” Zubov in “Muzhiks”, at 73, continues to work, play, touring.
In Stary Oskol, the entertaining “Love is not a potato, you will not throw it into the window” was played – a theatrical version of Vladimir Menshov’s film. When Alexander Mikhailov in the finale bowed to the audience, a young man approached him and held out a photo. Seeing the picture, the artist raised an eyebrow and called the guy behind the scenes.
In a photo taken in the mid-90s in Chechnya, Alexander Mikhaylov and soldiers were sealed, among them was Valery Volovodov. A minute before the camera shutter clicked, the actor put a guard on his neck to one of the soldiers, a tape with a 90-psalm David printed on it, known as “alive in help”, such belts worn by soldiers during the service. The young man believes that thanks to a meeting with Mikhailov, he was able to avoid death in the war.
“I recognized him, walked over and took a picture. And he hung on me “living in help” and said: “God keep you.” And I do not take off the amulet until now. I found Mikhailov later and said that “my destiny is wonderful, maybe only thanks to you”, only to Alexander Yakovlevich, “said the soldier.

In the documentary of the First Channel “Alexander Mikhailov. Only the main roles “it is told that Valera Volovodov arrived in Chechnya as part of a group that replaced the company that died on the eve of the company, and despite the fact that the guy was on the verge of life and death several times, he returned home as a whole. Later he married, twice became a father.
Alexander Mikhailov, every time in the Belgorod region, tries to see a guy who considers him his savior.
I must say that Alexander Mikhailov himself went to Chechnya not just with concerts, the actor wanted to stay there, be in the thick of events, as he says “I could not hide behind the guys’ backs.” But Mikhailov was quickly returned from the war to Moscow.
Alexander Mikhailov himself could become a military man, he dreamed of being a sailor. He was born in the Chita region, then with the family they moved to Vladivostok. There he made several attempts to enter the Nakhimov School, but having failed, he graduated from the crafts and became a sailor-minder. Maybe Alexander Mikhailov would go on a sea voyage in the Far East if he did not get into the theater one day and did not see Chekhov’s Ivanov, in which his future friend Valery Priemykhov played. “I sobbed and realized that I should be there, on stage, next to them. I went to the shore of the Amur Bay, dipped a bit, and said “I will not return, I will be an actor”, – said Alexander Mikhailov.
