Ivan Hovhannisyan embodies strong men on the screen. In his filmography, dozens of roles of police officers and tough guys. And in life there are three daughters and a failed career as a classical musician.
From musician to actor
If the life path of Ivan Oganesyan had not taken a sharp turn at some point, now we would have had a first-class cellist. After all, Ivan's life from childhood was associated with music. His parents were professional musicians: dad was an opera singer, and mom was a pianist. By the way, Ivan owes the original patronymic "Dzhonridovich" to his father, whom his parents named after the author of the famous book "Ten Days That Shook the World" John Reed. Ivan himself played the cello. The family led a nomadic life, lived where there was work, the son was born in Saratov. Recently, the actor's parents settled in Ivanovo. When the time came to think about further education, Ivan moved to Minsk for a while, alone, without his parents. He began to live in a boarding school at a music school and study with a professional teacher. But such a forced step was later justified: Ivan entered the Moscow Central Music School at the Conservatory.
But the study was hard for the young man, apparently Ivan had already burned out with music. In order not to waste time, he entered the music department of the Russian Academy of Theater Arts. But after studying a little, Ivan is abruptly transferred to the acting department in the workshop of Pyotr Fomenko. Evgeny Tsyganov and Irina Pegova become his classmates.
But Hovhannisyan did not manage to finish the course. He was invited to the theater and the actor flew to Israel. But work there did not bring the desired success, I had to return. But there was no time to study, the theatrical life immediately spun. The era of musicals began in Moscow, which was only in Ivan's hands. In 2002 he was invited to play a pilot in the musical "Nord-Ost". On the day when the terrorists took hostages at the Theater Center on Dubrovka, Ivan was just on the stage.
Such a beginning did not cool Ivan's desire to become an actor. A year later, he made his debut in the television series "Desirable". To date, the actor has more than thirty works in serials. Yes, Hovhannisyan has not yet hit the big screen. But his television work also brought him well-deserved success and the love of the audience. The most striking roles were played by Ivan in the TV series "Viola Tarakanova" based on the novels of Daria Dontsova. In the adapted version of the film "Law and Order" Ivan acted as an investigator for four years. And in 2013, the first season of the series "The Sniffer" was released, which simply beat all popularity ratings.
The personal life of Ivan Oganesyan is hidden from the press. He lived with his first wife Anna for five years, the couple had a daughter, Olesya. But soon Anna met another and now lives with her daughter in London. The second wife of the actor Elena, whose marriage is not officially registered, presented Ivan with twin girls.
