Soviet and Ukrainian actor


Borislav Nikolaevich Brondukov was born in a small village near Kiev on March 1, 1938.

He finished a mining technical school in the capital of Ukraine and started working at a Kiev plant. Only at the age of 23 he made a final decision to become an actor and entered the Film Faculty of the Karpenko-Karogo Kiev Theater Institute. Starting from 1965 Brondukov was an actor of the Kiev Film Studio.

He made his film debut in 1962, in Flowers on Stone by the director Sergey Paradzhanov well-known all over the world nowadays. However, the first role was not a noticeable success for the actor. He played a number of bit parts in such famous movies as Viy, Dangerous Tours, If There Are Sails, A Step from the Roof, etc. The first time he was noticed by public was in the film Hello and Goodbye.

Gradually, film after film, Borislav Brondukov started winning hearts of the audience and recognition among film directors. Though he was not offered the central roles at once, the actor with the power of his talent gained love of the viewers even through his bit parts in such movies as Afonya, The Camp Goes to the Sky, Award, Garage, Autumn Marathon, and Cruel Romance.

Finally he played the leads, which were unexpectedly away from his line of character: a juvenile part, though slightly comical, in the film You Are Expected by Citizen Nikanorova together with the brilliant Natalia Gundareva and in the severe adventure movie Worrisome Month Veresen. Gets to it and a big role of the police inspector in a TV series about Sherlock Holmes where the central roles played Vasily Livanov and Vitaly Solomin. Brondukov’s characters are distinguished by internal coolness in combination with external activity, which always leads to misunderstanding and absurdity. The human type is very recognizable, bringing nonsense into life, but nevertheless not so ominous to cause hatred, but worthy of sneers.

The actor very precisely guessed and expressed this character, which was widespread among his contemporaries. The actor appeared on screen last time in 1997, in the film Hippiniada, or Love Continent. Afterwards he suffered the third stroke, and then could hardly move and talk. Borislav Nikolaevich Brondukov died on March 10, 2004 in Kiev, where he was laid to rest in the Baikovo Cemetery.
