Born on May 26, 1954 in Kemerovo. In 1975 he graduated from the acting department of the local music school (course B.N. Solovyov). Since 1977 he worked in the Tomsk Drama Theater. In 1985, he was invited to his picture by film director Konstantin Lopushinsky, to whom a colleague of Platokhin in the theater showed a photo of Yevgeny Nikolayevich. And Platokhin left for Leningrad. Then there was Moscow. Here, thanks to the extravagant appearance of the actor, a villainous role was stuck to him - for example, the role of a servant in “The Curse of Durant”. Acquainted with Vasily Livanov and Vitaly Solomin on the set of the last series of Sherlock Holmes, in 1988 he went to their theater "Detective". There he worked in the company of Sergei Shakurov, Valentin Smirnitsky and other actors, while continuing to act. Upon learning of the death of a friend of Viktor Avilov, he was very worried. He says this is rock - Avilov often played demonic roles, the last of which is Woland in The Master and Margarita. In 2000, Yevgeny Platokhin returned to Tomsk for family reasons. He was busy in most productions of Tomsk drama. He died on May 6, 2006 in Tomsk.
