“Vasily Semyonovich had an amazing quality.

When I saw him, he always went somewhere on business.

As fast as a comet.

Always so effective, handsome, with a good voice.

He was for me the personification of an actor with a capital letter.

I always looked at him with my mouth open.

I was even afraid to talk to him, ”he said in an interview with Gazeta.Ru.

According to Vdovichenkov, the era, "the last of the Mohicans" of the Vakhtangov Theater, is gone.

He recalled that Mikhail Ulyanov, Yuri Yakovlev, Vladimir Etush died, and now Vasily Lanovoy is gone.

“Only beautiful young ladies stayed with us.

It's a shame, ”added the actor.

Earlier, actor Lev Prygunov, in an interview with FAN, expressed condolences in connection with the death of Lanovoy.
