Armenian film and theater actor, People's Artist of the USSR (1984). He studied in Leninakan Art College and Theatre Studio, then finished at the Acting Department of Yerevan Institute of Fine Arts and Theatre. He directed many successful productions, most notably Maxim Gorky's "The Lower Depths". His cinema career began in 1955. His famous roles were in Rolan Bykov's "Aybolit-66" (1966), Leonid Gaidai's "Kidnapping, Caucasian Style" (1966), and Georgi Daneliya's "Mimino" (1977). He gained the reputation of one of the leading comedy actors in the Soviet Union. Despite this reputation, he was also a dramatic actor with emotional depth, as seen in Armenian movies such as "Yerankyuni" ("Triangle") (1967), "Menq enq, mer sarere" ("We Are Our Mountains") (1969), "Hayrik" ("Father") (1973), "Nahapet" (1977), "Hin oreri yerge" ("Old Days' Song") (1982), "Mer Mankutyan Tangon" ("Tango of Our Childhood") (1985). Among his many awards was the USSR State Prize for 1978.
