In 1992 he graduated from Shchukin Theatre School, where he studied under Albert Gurov; in 1999 he graduated from the director's faculty of the VGIK where Vladimir Khotinenko was his teacher.

In the last years of his life Vladislav Galkin was actively engaged in filming, but misfortunes befell the actor one after another. Disagreement in family life was followed by divorce. A nervous breakdown, which led to a rowdy scene in a bar, affected a public agent and the actor ended up with 14 months of conditional sentence and a year and a half of probation period...
