Childhood and adolescence

Igor Nikolayevich was born in the village of Reinsfeld (now Zalesye), which was founded in the Kuibyshev (Samara) region by German immigrants. The ancestors of the future actor were Belarusians, his father went through the whole war with the rank of captain of the first rank, his mother was engaged in bringing up Igor and his older brother Boris.

In early childhood, Igor managed to visit Baku, Odessa, Izmail, Moscow and even in the capital of Romania - Bucharest. In the end, the family settled in Tallinn.

Prior to the seventh grade, Igor studied at the men's school, which was then combined with the women's gymnasium.

As a teenager, Igor signed up a drama club, led by the leading actor of the local drama theater Ivan Rossomahin. Thanks to him, the young actors had the opportunity not only to visit the Russian Drama often, but also to show their amateur performances on the professional stage. Such famous actors as Vladimir Korenev and Vitaly Konyaev came out of this very circle.
