Both parents and teachers have long known about early vocational guidance. Vladimir Piterov began attending drama school already in the lower grades of secondary school. Today he is known as a popular theater and film actor.
Childhood and youth
It is very difficult to choose a life goal for yourself at an early age. Vladimir Alexandrovich Piterov, for the time being, did not really think about choosing a profession. He, like most boys, dreamed of becoming a military man. He really liked the strict uniform of the officers of the navy. Perhaps this love would have found a real embodiment, but fate decreed differently. At one point, quite by accident, the boy was invited to the drama studio. The imperious magic of the scene captured the child from the first minutes.
The future theater and film actor was born on February 20, 1979 in an ordinary Soviet family. Parents at that time lived in the famous city of Odessa. My father worked on the railroad. Mother taught history at one of the universities. Vladimir studied well at school. There were not enough stars from the sky. Among his peers, he stood out for the fact that he spent all his free time in the classes of the drama studio, which operated at the city House of Pioneers. After the eighth grade, Peter convinced his parents that he needed to get a specialized education at the city theater lyceum.
The curriculum at the Lyceum is designed in such a way as to provide students with the maximum assimilation of the thematic material. Peterov, as a student, regularly underwent practical training at the local Theater of the Young Spectator (TYuZ). It is very important for a novice actor to consolidate theoretical knowledge and transform it into practical skills. Vladimir played the smallest roles with great pleasure. He played in episodes with inspiration. The young man's efforts were noticed and appreciated. In 1996, Piterov completed his studies and joined the troupe of the Theater for Young Spectators, which had already become a native.
From the first weeks, the certified actor was included in the composition of the repertoire performances. Peterov played roles in both classical productions and avant-garde plays. Young viewers enthusiastically received the actor in the productions of Mowgli, Puss in Boots, Leader of the Redskins. The theater also staged performances for adult audiences. Vladimir appeared on stage in the plays "Figaro", "Valentine's Night", "Games in the Backyard". In his daily routine, the actor did not forget to improve his professional skills.
Recognition and privacy
Peterov's acting career was developing quite successfully. At the same time, he tried directing and wrote scripts. In 2017, Vladimir graduated from the directing department of the Kharkov University of Arts. A month after that, he was invited to the troupe of the Kiev Theater of Russian Drama named after Lesya Ukrainka.
Peterov does not tell journalists about his personal life. He was married to Oksana Burlai, who works as the artistic director of the Odessa Youth Theater. After several years of marriage, the husband and wife decided to leave. Vladimir lives in Kiev. Oksana stayed in Odessa.
