Biography of Igor Lukin

Igor Lukin, a Russian actor, is best known for his role in the popular television series "Detectives" and his work as a scriptwriter. He took his first breath on April 4, 1965, in Moscow. His mother was a paramedic in an ambulance brigade, and his father was involved in small entrepreneurship. Lukin grew up in a large and close-knit family, alongside his sister and two brothers. His passion for cinema emerged during his youth, and he actively participated in KVN competitions and other artistic events, showcasing his creative potential on stage. Alongside this, he also mastered the art of playing the guitar, adding diversity to his creative life.

The early years of Igor Lukin's life had a significant influence on his future creative career. After completing his education at the Cookery School No. 41 in Moscow from 1980 to 1983, Lukin's path took a different turn when he served in the military for eight years. Although his profession as a cook remained in the past, his love for cooking stayed with him. Cooking homemade dishes became one of his hobbies and passions.

Upon returning to his homeland after military service, Igor Lukin decided to pursue a career in law enforcement. He enrolled in the prestigious Moscow University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia and successfully graduated with honors. From 1993 to 2000, Lukin found his place at the Training Center of the Main Directorate of Internal Affairs of Moscow. Through seven years of hard work, he advanced from the duty officer to the course leader, and eventually became the deputy chief of the Training Center, attaining the rank of captain. His career progression continued at the Moscow Police Station No. 83, where he became the head of the investigation department. His service in law enforcement ended with his position as a local police officer before he retired. In recognition of his outstanding service, Igor Lukin was awarded the honorary medal "For Excellence in Service" three times.

However, his career was not limited to his service in the police. In 2005, Lukin made his debut in the film industry. Several episodic roles in the series "Barbie's Wedding" and "Golden Guys" opened new horizons for him. According to him, this experience ignited his passion for working in the film industry. As he approached retirement age, Lukin learned about a casting for a role in the series "Detectives." Determined not to miss this opportunity, he participated and emerged victorious, securing the significant role of Petrovich.

Participating in the filming of this series led both Lukin and his colleague, A. V. Nasonov, another former employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, to leave their positions. At the time of his departure from the law enforcement agencies (after 20 years of service), Igor Lukin held the rank of major. The filming of the series "Detectives" took place from 2006 to 2019, initially on the "First Channel" and later on the "Fifth Channel." During this period, Lukin's popularity and that of his character, "Petrovich," grew rapidly. Fans actively discussed his talent and expressed their interest in him on social media, sometimes seeking his advice.

Interestingly, Igor Petrovich not only portrayed the main role in the series but also tried his hand at screenwriting. This is understandable considering his many years of experience in law enforcement, which he gladly shared with the creators of the project.
