Acting dynasties take shape over a long period. At the same time, the continuity of generations can be interrupted for the most banal reason. Mikhail Lyubeznov was a promising actor, but he passed away too early.
Wealth in tangible and intangible form accumulates over a long period of time. Fathers are trying to "put together capital" and pass it on to their heirs. In turn, representatives of the next generation do not always rationally manage the money and opportunities received. Mikhail Ivanovich Lyubeznov was born on November 3, 1947 in the family of a famous actor. Parents at that time lived in Moscow. Father Ivan Alexandrovich Lyubeznov - People's Artist of the USSR served in the theater and acted in films. Mother was engaged in housekeeping.
The child grew and developed surrounded by love and care. Relatives and acquaintances had no doubts that Mikhail would follow in the footsteps of his father. The boy showed creativity from an early age. He learned the letters early and independently began to read all the books that were in the house.

His favorite subjects were history and literature. In high school, the young man attended classes in a theater studio and a literary circle.

However, Mikhail, despite his gentle nature, tried to insist on his own.

Critics noted that the successfully performed role did not bring an avalanche of new proposals. The next picture with his participation, "A Man in His Place", was released two years later. During his short life, Mikhail managed to appear in only five films. The film “Hello, I’m your aunt!” Has received the greatest fame. In this project, the young performer harmoniously blended into the team of already famous actors.
