A long time ago, in the mid-eighties of the last century, within the walls of the Chelyabinsk Medical Institute was born the vocal and instrumental trio "Cartoons". The female part of the population in the collective was represented by Larisa Brokhman.
Long-term practice shows that some talented people have to make their way to fame by roundabout paths. Natural optimism, cheerful disposition and positive thinking always help in such situations. Larisa Efimovna Brokhman at a certain stage of her development did not even think that she would become a popular performer of children's songs and fairy tales. Her creative destiny to a certain extent resembles the adventures of Cheburashka from the famous cartoon, in the dubbing of which Larisa Efimovna took an active part.
The future actress was born on January 28, 1962 in an ordinary Soviet family. Parents lived in the famous city of Chelyabinsk. My father taught electrical engineering at a local industrial institute. Mother worked as an English teacher in one of the city schools. Larisa grew up as a mobile and inquisitive child. Already in kindergarten, she performed with great pleasure at matinees and other festive events. The girl read poems from the stage, sang songs and danced. Relatives and neighbors loved the little actress and in every possible way encouraged her creativity with gifts, sweets, fruits. Lariska is an artist, that was the name of her friends.
Brokhman studied well at school. The girl devoted all her free time to amateur art activities. Any subjects, both humanitarian and others, were given to her equally easily. At the same time, Larisa's favorite discipline was biology. In high school, she several times won first places at city Olympiads in this subject. Quite naturally, her friends and relatives advised her to choose the profession of a doctor. After the tenth grade, Larisa, without much hesitation, decided to get a specialized education at the Chelyabinsk Medical Institute.
The path to the "big" microphone
Student years are deservedly considered the best in the biography of many people. In this context, Larisa Brokhman was no exception. Already in her second year, she became a member of the institute's KVN. It was in this group that the performer's acting and vocal abilities were revealed. As often happens in a creative get-together, the moment has come and Larisa has fantasized about a new project. Together with two fellow students, she became a member of the vocal-instrumental group "Cartoons". The idea was simple and ingenious at the same time - to perform songs from cartoons.
And between rehearsals and performances, Brokhman graduated from the institute and received a referral to one of the city's hospitals. For almost two years she tried to build a career in the medical field. However, the imperious magic of the stage has already firmly seized Larisa's mind. In the early 90s, the members of the "Multic" made a joint decision to go "free swimming". By that time, Brokhman was already familiar with the famous singer-songwriter Oleg Mityaev. The decision to leave medicine and engage in creative activity matured largely under the influence of Oleg.
Larisa tried not to refuse an invitation to speak at a suitable event. In 1986 she became a laureate of the Grushensky festival of author's songs. And a season later she was awarded a commemorative prize of the Ilmen festival. For almost two years "Cartoons" were on the staff of the Chelyabinsk Philharmonic. In 1994, Larisa moved to the capital. Here the actress and singer quickly became a demanded "character". More precisely, they began to invite her to dub cartoons and computer games. The reason for this was the timbre of her voice, which has the widest range.
After a short period of time, the inimitable voice of Larisa Brokhman became known not only in Russia, but also in some CIS countries. He sounded in popular cartoons and children's television programs. For more than five years, Brokhman shone and "sounded" in the humorous programs of the "First Channel". The TV show "Cartoon of personality" occupied the top lines of the ratings from 2009 to 2013. The actress devoted a lot of time and effort to dubbing and dubbing animated films and TV series.
Critics and experts agree that Larisa Brokhman is a unique actress and singer. Each of her performances is perceived by the audience as a mini-performance. Both children and adults laugh and worry heartily, looking at the adventures of the characters. Vocal miniatures performed by her are touching and funny. Seen from the outside, it seems that the actress effortlessly moves from fun to tears and from ridicule to sympathy. The love of the audience is worth a lot, and therefore Larisa never fiddles.
Recognition and privacy
Unlike some colleagues, Larisa Brokhman works without downtime. According to some experts, the actress's voice was specially created for dubbing cartoons. There is no doubt about that today. The Icarus Film Award for 2016 is a clear confirmation of this. In recent years, the actress has been working a lot on dubbing computer games. This is a promising direction, and there are few talented performers here.
Little is known about the actress's personal life. At one time, she married a stage colleague. The husband and wife came to Moscow together. And here the family boat crashed and sank. Son Sasha stayed with his mother.
