Yevgeny Perov never studied at the Moscow Art Theater School-Studio, but he played on stage as an actor of the Moscow Art Academic Theater. He was an actor who organically got into every role, so he never replayed, did not lie and did not play.
Thanks to his talent, Yevgeny Perov could be embodied in any image - comic and tragic, lyrical, romantic and at the same time ordinary, household. All his life he served in the same theater - the Central Children's Theater (Central Children's Theater) of Moscow, and shortly before his death he asked me to say hello to the stage I missed.
Biography of Yevgeny Vladimirovich Perov
Yevgeny Vladimirovich was born on September 7, 1919 in Borisoglebsk. About childhood actor virtually nothing is known. The actor’s biography begins with his activities on the stage of the Pskov Pedagogical Theater, on the stage of which he appeared in 1936. Then Eugene was seventeen years old.
Then there was Leningrad, where the future actor was called to serve, where he graduated from the theatrical technical school and was accepted into the Leningrad theater of the young audience. Until 1945, Yevgeny Perov served in the Black Sea Theater, the entire Great Patriotic War gave performances on all fronts. For the fighting in Sevastopol he was awarded the medal "For the Defense of Sevastopol", and there were also awards "For Military Merit", "For the Defense of the Caucasus" and "For Victory over Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945." In addition, he was rewarded with orders of the Patriotic War of 1 and 2 degrees. Yevgeny Vladimirovich participated in the battles in the Caucasus and the Crimea and, with the Red Army, reached Romania and Bulgaria.
Central Children's Theater
After the war, Yevgeny Vladimirovich Perov moved to Moscow and settled there at the Central Children's Theater, which remained faithful until the end of his days, despite the fact that his beloved director Anatoly Efros called with him to Lenkom.
Once in 1946 at the Central House of Theater, Eugene Perov immediately took a leading place among the actors. His first significant role was Pavka Korchagin. Then, in 1947, the play "How the Steel Was Tempered" was a huge success and brought fame to the main performer. All Soviet newspapers and magazines sharply discussed the play, which reflected the patriotic mood of post-war youth. The image of Pavel Korchagin is relevant even now, when young people lack heroes from which they can take an example.
About the young actor Eugenia Perov, they wrote that he fully and convincingly embodies the hero of the civil war and, possessing artistic potential deeply, reveals the spiritual world of Pavel Korchagin. Behind the harsh and unusual character of the protagonist of the novel by Ostrovsky lies the nobility and breadth of the soul. This is shown in full by the young actor.
For Yevgeny Perov, it was a real resounding success, which did not turn his head. On the contrary, the young man began to study acting skills with even greater persistence.
After the hero of the revolution, a year later, Perov was offered the role of the Storyteller in the play “The Snow Queen”. And he coped with it brilliantly. Then there was the role of Andrei Gavrilovich Dubrovsky in the play staged after Pushkin’s Dubrovsky. The young actor had to get used to the image of an elderly person. In the scene, when Troyekurov meets with Andrei Gavrilovich, Evgeny Vladimirovich so naturally portrayed the insult that he "lost feelings" and fell on his back. The audience froze, and their faces showed that they were worried about an actor who could cripple himself.
The actress of the Central Children's Day Tatiana Nadezhdina recalled Yevgeny Vladimirovich with warmth and told that he went on stage without make-up, changing only her hair. He could comb his hair in a straight parting or he could make a stand. In the children's play “Uncle Tom's Cabin” Perov played Tom the Negro and for this role was smeared in black make-up. In the course of the performance, when Tom had to say goodbye to close people who were sold on the market, Yevgeny Perov always had tears that left white stripes behind him. In the eyes of Tom-Perov there was so much agony, pain, and anxiety that the audience cried along with him, not noticing the comical situation.
Almost all the actors of the Central Children's Hospital became famous in the Soviet Union when Anatoly Efros came to the theater. One of the leaders among them was the actor Yevgeny Perov. At that time, Efros was fascinated by the work of playwright Viktor Rozov, so almost all the performances were based on his plays. Yevgeny Vladimirovich sensitively perceived the heroes of Rozov. They suited him by nature, because they did not want and did not know how to lie, were natural and so on. Perov was involved in all productions of Efros.
Real glory brought him the play "In Search of Joy", which was staged in 1957, and then for fifteen years he did not leave the stage of the theater. In 1960, director Anatoly Efros based on the same play made the film “Noisy Day”, where Yevgeny Perov again played the main role. This made it popular throughout the USSR.
Although the role of Ivan Nikitichna Lapshin was negative, many remembered it from the play and from the film. The culmination of the play is the scene in which the son of Lapshin, Gennady, who has never rebuked his father, stops the parent, waving a hand at him. At that time, the thoughts of the actor Perov were clearly read: misunderstanding, despair because he lost control of his son, understanding that the son had matured, and the eyes of the actor were filled with tears. It was impossible to look at it without a lump in my throat.
Many plays by Victor Rozov were staged on the stage of the Central Children's Theater, the most famous of them - “Unequal Fight”, “Before Dinner”, “At Good Hour”.
Russian Jean Gabin
According to Tatiana Nadezhdina’s recollections, one day director Alexei Popov came to the performance and, after watching the production, exclaimed that only dogs could replay the actors of the CDT. But Tatyana Nadezhdina believes that no one, no pets, can beat Yevgenia Perov. So think and keep a pause on the stage could only Yevgeny Vladimirovich. In her opinion, the Soviet actor can only be compared with the French actor Jean Gabin, who became famous throughout the world.
Yevgeny Vladimirovich never sat with a pen at rehearsals and did not write anything down; he listened attentively to the director, thought he did not ask thoughtless questions. He had his own perception of the role. Delving into the character of the character was not in his spirit, since Yevgeny Vladimirovich believed that this could lead to the wilds and achieve nothing. It was necessary to trust his intuition and the first reading of the role. All those whom he played, the actor passed through himself. Not a single character repeated. Even for several years playing a teacher in the play “Zero on Behavior, ” Perov was different each time.

On the personal life of Yevgeny Vladimirovich Perov there is little information. It is only known that he was married and had a daughter Luba. Wife also bore that name. After Perov left the stage because of his illness (he started having memory problems), both women cared for him. They loved Yevgeny Perov very much and guarded them in every way.
Evgeny Vladimirovich died in 1992 and was buried at the Danilovsky cemetery (station number 8) of the city of Moscow.
