Life and careerEdit

Sidikhin was born in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg, Russia), in 1964. He studied martial arts and boxing since the 4th grade and was a five-time champion in the City of Leningrad. After high school he was accepted into the Leningrad State Institute of Theater, Music, and Cinematography. However, in his freshman year, he was drafted into the army. He served in Turkmenistan and in the military intelligence in Afghanistan. After completing his service, he returned to LGITMIK and graduated in 1989. He worked at the Lensovet Theater and the Tovstonogov Bolshoi Drama Theater and had a brief career of a talk-show host at the Russian television channel NTV. He starred in his first film in 1991. Many of his roles take advantage of his martial arts skills and good looks; however, he always plays the emotional and human side of the character. Sidikhin's hobby is yacht sailing.
