Konstantin Kryukov is a domestic actor and artist. He is best known for playing roles in the films “9th Company”, “Swallow’s Nest” and “9 Months”.

Biography

Was born on February 7, 1985 in Moscow. His father is a Doctor of Philosophy, and his mother is actress Elena Bondarchuk. So most of Konstantin’s maternal relatives are in one way or another connected with the world of cinema. But the boy’s fate took its own path. Earlier, Kostya’s childhood passed in Switzerland, and only a few years later the family began to live in Moscow again. The famous grandfather of Konstantin, Sergei Bondarchuk, decided not to involve the boy in the cinema, instead he instilled in him a love of painting. It was at the insistence of Sergei Bondarchuk that Konstantin began to study at an art school in Zurich, from which he graduated with honors. Since then, Kryukov’s life has been inextricably linked with art. And for one of his series of paintings he was awarded the prestigious Franz Kafka Order.

Actor career

Acting career for Kryukov began by chance (if I may say so with his direct relation to the famous dynasty of filmmakers). One day, someone from the family had the idea to involve him in the filming of Fyodor Bondarchuk’s new film “Company 9”, and soon Konstantin was approved. He quite successfully managed to embody the image of a real prototype, with which the actor met before starting work. The film itself was a great success, thanks to which many drew attention to Kryukov. And although Konstantin did not plan to continue acting in films, numerous interesting proposals changed his decision.

After the film “9th company” Konstantin was noted in the TV series “9 months” and “Love as love”. He also played in films such as “ZHARA” and “Zero Kilometer”. A little later, with his participation, the films “Pickup: Eating Without Rules”, “On the Hook!”, “Generation P” and “Medicine for Grandma” were released on the screens. And among the last works of the actor can be noted the pictures “Everything is simple” and “What men are doing!”.

Kryukov has been married for several years, in 2008 he divorced. From this marriage he has a daughter.
