Russia is a large and many-sided country. On this territory, happy people get along, and those who are cheated by fate. Lyudmila Zhivykh is a classic Russian actress who gave her talent and her life to the provincial theater.
A distant start
According to some researchers, the Russian theater "goes back to the era when buffoons wandered around the cities and villages." With their performances, wandering artists amused the people, distracted people from hard work and everyday worries. If we evaluate modern reality, then the theater continues these glorious traditions. The creative fate of the People's Artist of the RSFSR Lyudmila Filippovna Zhivykh is a clear illustration of this.
The future "stage worker" was born on October 3, 1931 in an intelligent Soviet family. Parents lived at that time in Moscow. Mother worked as a costume designer in one of the capital's theaters. The father, shortly after the birth of the child, went on a long business trip to the North and did not return. The girl grew up in the care of her grandmother. During the war, together with the troupe of the Vakhtangov Theater, the family was evacuated to Omsk. After the Victory, Lyudmila, with her mother and grandmother, returned home and continued her studies at school.
The way to the stage
In high school, the girl was actively engaged in a drama studio. Having received a certificate of maturity, Lyudmila tried to acquire a working profession, and got a job at a garment factory. Here she was attracted to participate in amateur performances. The young seamstress Zhivykh took the stage of the House of Culture with great pleasure and inspiration. Creativity fascinated her, and brought a feeling of happiness. Overcoming internal uncertainty, Lyudmila Filippovna prepared and entered the famous Shchukin school.
In 1956, having received a specialized education, Lyudmila Zhivykh entered the service in the theater of the Soviet Army. The actress tried to perform in a conversational genre. She read poems and excerpts from prose works from the stage. Two years later she was invited to the troupe of the Novosibirsk theater "Red Torch". Career on the stage of "Fakel" was developing well, but in 1961 director Yuri Zayonchkovsky left for Petrozavodsk and invited her with him. Well, do not let your husband go alone this far?
Creativity and personal life
The best years have passed on the hospitable land of Karelia and the main performances of Lyudmila Filippovna Zhivykh have been performed. For almost 27 years, the actress appeared on the stage of the Karelian Music and Drama Theater. Over the past period, she has created a long line of images that will be remembered by the audience for a long time. She was often invited to television.
If we discard snobbery and arrogance, then the career of the actress has developed quite successfully. Husband and wife lived together. When the spouse was transferred to the republican television as the chief director, Lyudmila prepared a fresh shirt and tie for him every day to match the suit. A bright and modest, talented actress passed away on November 4, 2006.
