Oleg Tabakov in the 2005 Fandorin-movie The Councillor of State.

Oleg Pavlovich Tabakov is one of the most recognizable Russian actors and the artistic director of the Moscow Art Theatre.

Tabakov was born in Saratov on August 17, 1935 and studied in the Moscow Art Theatre School. Upon graduating from the school he became one of the founding fathers of the Sovremennik Theatre. He administrated the Sovremennik until 1982, when he moved to the Moscow Art Theatre, in which he has played Moliere and Salieri for over 20 years now.

In 1986 Tabakov persuaded his students to form the Tabakov Studio attached to the Moscow Art Theatre. This studio has since grown into the most popular theatre in the Russian capital and spawned careers of some of the best known Russian actors, including Yevgeny Mironov, Sergey Bezrukov, and Vladimir Mashkov. Tabakov also worked in many foreign countries, disseminating his theatre's ideals abroad. In 2004 he was appointed director of the Moscow Art Theatre.

Tabakov's movie career paralleled the theatrical. He was featured in Grigori Chukhrai's Clear Skies (1961), Sergei Bondarchuk's War and Peace (1968), TV series Seventeen Instants of Spring (1973), the Oscar-winning Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears (1980), Nikita Mikhalkov's Oblomov (1981) and Dark Eyes (1986), and the mock ostern A Man from the Boulevard des Capuchines (1987), to name only a few. He also dubbed the talking cat Mr Matroskin in Russian cartoons.
