Biography Petrenko Igor Petrovich
Igor Petrenko was born in 1977 in a military family in the German town of Neuruppin. His father - a colonel, assistant professor, candidate of military sciences, mother - a translator from English. When Igor was three years old, the family moved to Moscow, where his father, Igor studied, and later served as a teacher on faculty at the Military Academy of chemical protection. Timoshenko. And later, when the accident occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, he was among those who risked their health to participate in the aftermath.
As recognized by Igor in his childhood he was not at all good boys, by contrast, grew up in this varmint. More than anything, he did not like school. The only object to which Igor showed at least some interest, was English. The others, especially chemistry, the boy could not stand. Which only tricks he had not indulged in order to not go there. He put on his feet bags with mustard, to raise the temperature in cold weather, wet, stuck out the window, and once even tried to break my arm. Fortunately, the boy's health, these tricks are not affected. Yet the lessons Igor missed. Walk with friends, he returned home and wrote stories supposedly happened to him in school.
Leisure Igor gave Sport. In six years he began studying gymnastics, then switched to Sambo, and later took up judo. Everywhere Igor sought good results, but work out for some time, threw.
Each summer the family Petrenko (parents, Igor and his sister Irina) traveled. They then went to Lake Baikal, then somewhere in the mountains, the sea. 'The childhood I had a saturated, there is something to remember: snow-capped mountain peaks, crossing Kluhorsky pass, fishing, a ten-day crossing in boats on lakes Metcherskys', - says Igor. Then he discovered the fascinating world of insects. 'When we go to a child at sea, I will certainly brought his sister a gift of dried butterflies, bugs. Houses were constantly jars with moths. Importance was the process of catching. Once in Sudak swallowtail so fascinated that he almost fell off the cliff not. Butterfly is good, it has wings. And I followed her just to break ...', not fly - he recalls. And now, after many years, Igor recognized that children's interest remained. Since the shooting in the picture of Paul Chukhrai 'Driver for Vera "its so tempted to let go of some stone, find skorpionchika.
Artist Igor Petrenko was not going to become. It is generally a long time could not determine. Despite receiving a certificate, he still did not know in which institution will act. Professions economist, financier or lawyer, popular in the early 90's, it does not tempt. Working with papers or sit behind a computer - it was not for him. Besides, the guy wanted to work with people:
Father wanted his son to go in the Suvorov Military School, thus continuing the dynasty. But the exact sciences in Igor was really bad, and this option was dropped by itself. Mom hinted that Igor is a tendency for languages, but also in the Institute. я¦пT. Igor did not go. All resolved by chance:
Once, while walking with a friend in the city, they learned about a set of Schepkinskoe School. Boys decided to try for fun ... Parents reacted to this very skeptical, but Igor, despite the enormous competition, held. He recalls: ': terribly nervous. Never before did not sing, but now had to sing a song. Learn the words before you go to the audience, but in my mouth all dry, either in one note can not get. He sang loudly, boldly: "I saw in spring forest birch sap '.
Then, upon arrival at the school, Igor met his future wife:
Introducing Irina Leonova
Irina Leonova came to drama school, having been acting experience - she worked in the studio theater at the Tallinn. Igor immediately drew attention to a beautiful girl. The statement, of course, was incredibly self-assured. But well educated girl from cultured family said: 'Very pleased'.
On entering the school, they became friends, and then friendship grew into love. Virtually the entire first year of Igor and Irina, for various reasons missed. Above them hangs the threat of expulsion. Rescued their teacher Natalia Petrova. It literally 'pulled' guys. Thanks to her, Igor and Irina prepared a joint sketch and passed an examination on acting.
As for the wedding, it had to be postponed until the end of the school. Teachers are not welcomed by the student marriages, believing that they are distracted from learning. Igor says that even there were times when the guys who were going to get married, simply deducted from the school.
Igor and Irina
After graduating in 2000 Schepkinskoe School, Petrenko and Leonov were taken to the Little Theater. At the same time, they finally played a wedding. All pre-wedding night with friends Igor rehearsed the song that he sang with a guitar in the morning, standing under the balcony of his bride. Then the solemn marriage ceremony in the registry office for foreigners, because nowhere else Irina, as a citizen of Estonia, not painted.
Families of Irina and Igor were middle class, and to organize a banquet in a restaurant for them was not easy. Helped my sister's husband, Igor, then worked as director of restaurant. The boys got into debt and then the honeymoon spent mastering the waiters in the same restaurant, because wages in the theater clearly not enough.
The Maly Theater Igor worked for two years. The constant presence of a number - both at home and at rehearsals in the theater - gradually aggravate relations between Igor and Irina. 'At rehearsals together, plays together. We're going in the car home - talking about work, criticize each other. Begins the mutual insults. God forbid, I'm somewhere else or come too late - abused wife, then she expressed to me ... Nightmare! Most of our disputes and quarrels - because of. But if the IRA makes remarks softly, then I, is, apply it seriously ', - says Igor. It soon became clear that their marriage was doomed.
The first movie roles
His first film role - Roman Zolotov - Igor Petrenko played in 2000 in the thriller Ildar Islamgulova. But this picture unnoticed viewers. A year later, Igor was invited to the role of the secretary of the Komsomol organization Leonid Alexander Terekhov in series Aravina 'Moscow Windows'.

However Petrenko series starred actress Ekaterina Klimova. They were more familiar with the school. Catherine studied at higher rate, though it was under the age of Igor year. But in those years they were just friends:

Among the other young actors, Igor three months spent on military training, which has become a movie set 'stars'. The boys studied weapons, books on combat tactics, learned to overcome the obstacle, talk in sign language, crawl on their bellies and ride. Military intelligence consultants prepare them to sabotage this team. As a result of acting work in the film was totally organic, which I tried to authors of the film - in fact make the young men of the XXI century the Red Army of the sample in 1945 - it is very difficult.
Igor and Catherine
For the sake of a 'star' Igor had to leave the Little Theater. The young actor just did not have time to burst on two fronts. By the time exhausted themselves and the relationship with his wife.

Of course, I tried to somehow save the family, but then still went. Year I tried to forget Katya. One day, broke down and called her supposedly only to find out how things'.
