Recall that Vasily Lanovoy was born in Moscow. His parents were peasants who moved to the city during the famine of 1931. When the war began, the parents sent seven-year-old Vasily and his two sisters to their native village. For three years, the children did not see their father and mother. When the parent returned to take the children to Moscow, Lanovoy did not recognize his mother – the war had changed her so much.
At the age of 13, the future artist began to study in a drama circle at the Likhachev plant. But the choice in favor of an acting career was not final. In the seventh grade, Vasily almost transferred to a flight school, his acting teacher opposed this decision Sergey Stein… But even after graduating from school, which, by the way, Lanovoy graduated with a gold medal, the future artist entered the Faculty of Journalism at Moscow State University. But in the end he did not study there: at the age of 18 he was invited to play a role in the film “Certificate of Maturity”. After completing the filming, Lanovoy took the documents from Moscow State University and entered the Shchukin Theater School. After graduation, Vasily Lanovoy was accepted into the troupe of the Vakhtangov Theater.
