People say that the army is a school of life. Every man should get an education in it, regardless of his main profession. Oleg Valkman served as he should and became a popular actor.
On the wide Volga, on its hospitable shores, people with extraordinary abilities have been appearing for a long time. Each of them made their way to fame and recognition in their own way. Routes that fortune tellers don't even know about. Oleg Vladimirovich Valkman was born on July 11, 1968 into an ordinary Soviet family. Parents lived in the famous city of Gorky. It was in post-perestroika times that the former name of Nizhny Novgorod was returned to him. Father held the position of chief engineer of the design bureau. Mother worked as an assembler on the assembly line of a television factory.
Oleg grew up and was brought up according to the traditions that had developed by that time. He was taught to respect the elders and not offend the weak. From an early age, the child was restless. At the current historical moment, pediatricians diagnose such children with hyperactivity. However, Oleg's behavior in everyday life did not surprise anyone, and did not irritate anyone. Someone from close relatives half-jokingly said that the boy needs to become an actor. As he said, he prophesied. Oleg studied well at school. Several times he tried to enroll in a theater studio, but he was given a "shock".
The path to the profession
The refusal of the director of the children's theater studio did not discourage Oleg, but cut him out of pride. After school, he was drafted into the ranks of the armed forces. In the army, the fighter Valkman successfully mastered the science of winning and actively participated in amateur performances. Whenever possible, I studied the literature on the basics of acting. Returning to civilian life, Oleg decided to get a specialized education at the famous Theater School of his hometown. Successfully entered and completed training. In his last year, he was "shown" to the famous director Alexei Yuryevich German. Oleg immediately got a role in the film "Khrustalev, car".
After this precedent, Walkman went to Moscow and entered GITIS. It is interesting to note that the first two courses a guest from Nizhny Novgorod was listed as a free listener. And only in the third year I received a full-fledged student card and a scholarship. After graduation, he entered the service of the "Old Theater" Association. Walkman's acting career was quite successful. He is regularly invited to participate in large-scale film projects. For several years, Oleg starred in the TV series "Trace".
Recognition and privacy
Walkman, in his youth, formulated a rule for himself to treat any work conscientiously. He never cheats and puts creativity above fees. Over the past three years, he has regularly received offers from various theaters and film crews. Oleg even draws up an employment schedule for the next six months.
There is no information about the actor's personal life in open sources. Once, in his youth, he tried to start a family. But his wife did not suit him. Or not satisfied. Since then, Oleg has lived alone.
