Vyacheslav Grishechkin is a charismatic Soviet and Russian actor. He actively acts in films, participates in theatrical performances, and is engaged in directing activities. In 1994 he received the title of People's Artist of the Russian Federation.
The artist was born in Sochi on June 28, 1962. He grew up an active and artistic child. Already at preschool age, Vyacheslav began to read poetry. Then he was the host at school evenings and concerts. By the age of 12, Grishechkin had practically learned the repertoire of his favorite artist, Arkady Raikin, by heart, and performed with great enthusiasm in front of the public, imitating the great humorist. The audience was delighted with the plump little boy.
This was not his only hobby. Vyacheslav was engaged in fencing and boxing, attended puppet theater classes and an art circle. At the age of 13, he decided to enroll in an aircraft modeling circle, but by coincidence he got into a competition at the Theater of Young Muscovites. The talented young man was accepted into the team, and soon he already took part in the production of "The Nightingale".
Having received a certificate of maturity, Vyacheslav entered GITIS without much difficulty. He managed to unlearn several years when he was drafted into the army. Grishechkin returned home with the rank of junior sergeant and continued his studies.
Having become a certified actor, he practically registered at the Theater in the Southwest. This place has long been considered his second home. Grishechkin masterly performed not only comic, but also dramatic roles. The most significant and important theatrical work was the image of Woland in The Master and Margarita. The actor presented the hero from a completely different side: he put aristocracy, sexuality and sophistication in him.
In 2009, Vyacheslav Germanovich took over the leadership of the Volga Drama Theater. For him, this is not just a job, the famous actor helps the young generation develop spirituality and show a life unlimited by beer bottles and dirty porches.
On television, the actor made his debut in the film "Bindyuzhnik and the King". There he had a cameo role. At that time, the most significant work was shooting in the "Countess de Monsoreau". He was content with small roles, until he was offered to participate in a large-scale project - the TV series "Soldiers". His hero - political officer Starokon, immediately won the hearts of the audience and brought incredible popularity to the actor.
Vyacheslav Germanovich has two marriages behind him. He lived with his first wife for 5 years. His daughter Olga was born. The couple parted on a friendly wave, so the emotional connection with the child remained. Before leaving the family, the artist suffered for a long time, because he was the initiator of the divorce. Vyacheslav fell in love with another woman, and this feeling turned out to be real. With his second wife Anna, the artist managed to build a strong alliance. The couple celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary and were very happy. Unfortunately, at the age of 48, Anna fell ill with cancer. A year of struggling with the disease did not bring success, and the woman died. The artist suffered the loss hard and loves his wife to this day.
