Nikita Tatarenkov born on September 15, 1975 in Serpukhov. In the family, all the men were professional soldiers: and his father and grandfather. Nikita was brought up in strict rules and initially planned to continue the dynasty, to serve in the missile troops. Everything changed with the move to Moscow. Tatarenkov settled on Rustaveli street, where the neighborhood turned Youth Theatre Vyacheslav Spesivtseva. Nikita began studying at drama school, and soon contracted the virus scene, has never thought his future life without theater.

WTU them. Shchukin

The first big success was the young actor`s part in the play "Idiot", staged at the Theatre on Malaya Bronnaya. As a student, Tatarenkov perfectly played the role of Koli Ivolgina and was awarded the "Debut of the Year" award in 1996.

At the turn of the century

Shura Balaganov

In 2005, the director Ulyana Shilkina made another adaptation of the immortal novel by Ilf and Petrov "Golden Calf". On the role of the Shura Balaganov producers planned to invite Paul Derevianko, but Oleg Menshikov insisted viewed Nikita Tatarenkov.
