Andrey Krasko

Andrey Krasko was born on August, 10th, 1957 in Leningrad into the family of the student of Theatre Institute - the future People’s Artist of Russia, actor Ivan Krasko and the school teacher Kira Petrova.

Andrey became the student of Leningrad Theatre, Music and Cinema Institute, where he studied under Arkady Katsman and Lev Dodin.

In 1979 upon graduation he was placed on a job to the Tomsk Theater for Young Spectator. He also worked in the theater of Dimitrovgrad town of the Ulyanovsk Region, and in Petersburg Theater Comedian’s Shelter.

He made his cinema debut in 1979 with an episodic role in Lichnoe Svidanie (Personal Encounter), however the actor gained wide popularity only in the late 1990s, thanks to his role in the TV series Agent of National Security (1998-2004).

In 1982 Andrey Krasko was drafted to the army and sent to serve the Northern Polar District in the Arkhangelsk Region.

Afterwards he was periodically into filming, but those were mostly episodic roles. He had to make his living somehow and so took various odd jobs, among them working in a sewing cooperative society, and in a cemetery, in bookselling, and interior repairs, and as a self-employed taxi-driver. Later, however, Andrey Krasko became one of the most popular and demanded actors of the national cinema.

In the late 1990s Andrey Krasko acted on theater stage. He played in four performances at the Petersburg Theater Comedian’s Shelter. The play Men for One Hour, where he played one of the leads and which was actually staged by him was invariably sold out.

The short life of Andrey Krasko closed tragically early. The actor died on July, 4th, 2006, about a month before his 49th birthday. The fatal heart attack occurred during the shootings Sergei Ursuliak’s action movie Liquidation in the vicinity of Odessa. It took too long for the ambulance car to reach the patient, but they managed to take him to the hospital, where he died at night, without any professional medical care administered. Acute heart failure was diagnosed posthumously.
