The Dedyushko family

Turning the pages of the actor's biography

Alexander Dedyushko is a famous Russian actor

Alexander Dedyushko was born on May 20, 1962 in the Belarusian city of Volkovysk. His mother, working as a salesman, raised him with his older brother alone. The boys did not remember their father, they knew only one thing - he was very fond of drinking. His mother left him, despite the fact that with two children in her arms it was, oh, how difficult it was. And since Sashka was a very nimble, agile boy, she sent her son to a choreographic circle, where he danced folk dances. In addition, the boy was seriously fond of sports. He especially loved to play football and played for the school in literally all kinds of sports. And during the summer holidays, Sashka did not part with the horses.

From the age of six, his mother sent him to the village in the summer - she put one on the train, and he went to visit his relatives. There he rested and worked. With the village boys he mowed hay, stacked haystacks, weeded beets, grazed cows, for which he was paid a little. But most of all, the city boy liked to look after the horses.

In high school, he began to seriously dream of a theatrical education. He took part in the performances of the school drama club, during skits he perfectly recited poetry, and later made his debut in the role of Andrei Bolkonsky when staging an excerpt from Tolstoy's novel War and Peace. Since then, Sasha literally began to dream of theater. Therefore, after graduating from school, our hero decided to enter the acting department.

Having received a certificate and earning some money for a ticket, the provincial boy went to conquer Moscow. But, unfortunately, our hero was late with the submission of documents to the theater institute. And he had to work as a car mechanic for a year. Ironically, he was late the next year: due to the Olympic Games in 1980, the admission schedules to the country's universities were significantly shifted.

He closed the door behind him, and it slid to the floor, and a frozen gaze rested on the dial of the wall clock. The clock was 22.15, the calendar was November 3.

Exactly 15 years later, day in, day out, almost minute in minute, the woman received a message about the death of her ex-husband in a terrible accident.

The marriage of Svetlana and Alexander was extreme. The actress was expecting a child when Alexander decided to formalize their relationship. But neither in Moscow nor in Vladimir was there an opportunity to speed up the registration of marriage.

When giving interviews, the spouses admitted that they did not do anything special to save the family - they just lived for each other and for their common son Dima.

However, as often happens in happy families, the family idyll collapses due to human envy. It did not bypass the Dedyushko family either. The reason for the family showdown was the popularity of Dedyushko and his participation in the "Dancing with the Stars" project. Evil tongues of ill-wishers began to ascribe to the actor an affair with a dance partner. The press was literally full of headlines: "A popular actor had an affair with Liana Shakurova."

Every evening, unpleasant conversations took place in the Dedyushko family. Sveta suspected her husband of treason, and he swore that he loved only her. Close actresses poured oil on the fire, from the very beginning they met with hostility a poor son-in-law, who was 15 years older than their daughter, and tried with all their might to break their marriage. Even the birth of Dima's grandson did not melt their hearts.

Alexander's nerves at that time were at their limit. The busy schedule made itself felt: participation in the project, the premiere in the theater, shooting in the film "Albanian-2". It was this role that was supposed to become a new step in the career of an actor, he was given the opportunity to reveal his talent from a completely new side … In addition, he was so tired of the constant clarification of relations with his wife and her sister, who by that time had moved to live with them and tried in every possible way kindle enmity between spouses.

Together forever

The actor left home shortly before the accident, said to calm down. He rented an apartment from one of his friends and rarely spoke with his wife. At the same time, Dedyushko himself and his partner steadfastly continued to keep a "blank defense": all conversations about close relations between them were resolutely suppressed. And on that ill-fated November day, the actor decided to talk to Svetlana and make up. They were returning from Vladimir to Moscow by car. Dedyushko hurried to the Belorussky railway station to meet his mother and cousin.

Alas, no one will ever know whether Sasha and Sveta made up then or left with a stone in their hearts …
