Krasnodar, 10 October – Yug Times. Aleksandr Katkov, a leading actor of the Krasnodar Drama Theatre, is celebrating his 70th birthday these days.

He has been serving theatre for more than fifty years. The houses with his participation are always full. Sometimes the spectators cannot check their tears, brooding about his personage’s fate. If you look at this zappy and smart man, you would never believe he has turned seventy.

“It’s because of my genes!” Katkov says, laughing. “Also, I have tried to go in for sports for all my life.” After graduating from the Khabarovsk Dram School, Aleksandr joined the army. He served at the Soviet - Chinese border, and took part in the armed conflict at the island of Damansky.

“There I saw what a real war looks like - And it tempered me as a man,” he says.

After the army, Aleksandr came back home, to Khabarovsk, and went to work at a plant to feed his family. As a worker, he was making good money.

One day, however, in a café he met his fellow students who served at the Khabarovsk Young Spectator’s Theatre. They told him that one of their colleagues was leaving for end-of-term exams and that the theatre was closing for a month, because there was nobody to play his role in the theatre. Aleksandr made his decision at once.

After Khabarovsk, he worked in the Krasnoyarsk Young Spectator’s Theatre, then in the Vologda State Drama Theatre, and the Sverdlovsk Academic Drama Theatre. In 1987, the 39-year-old actor was invited to the Gorki Krasnodar Academic Drama Theatre. Since then, he has been working in our city. With his arrival, the Krasnodar Theatre as if got a gulp of fresh air.

The Honoured Artist Aleksandr Katkov says that as many actors, he is a very superstitious person: “I always say hello to the theatre. Over this time, it has really become my second home. Besides, I never think ahead: when being asked of my plans, I usually say, ‘The most important thing is to live.’ And the rest will be added.”
