People's Artist of the Ukrainian SSR (1988). He graduated from the Kiev Mining College (1960) and the film department of the Kiev Institute of Theatrical Arts named after IK. Karpenko-Kary (1965). He worked as a foreman at the Kiev factory "Arsenal". Since 1965 - actor of the Kiev Film Studio named after A.P. Dovzhenko. One of the most beloved actors of Ukraine. Inimitable performer of the roles of alcoholics, rogues and just "close" people. He played more than 30 film roles before uttering the phrase that made him famous: "Afonya! Drive fast!" (comedy "Afonya"). Then followed: "Tabor goes to the sky", "Marriage", "Citizen Nikanorova expects you", "Garage", "Look in both ways", "Green van" and the brilliantly played role of inspector Lestrade in the series about Sherlock Holmes. Brondukov appeared, most often, in small or episodic roles, but invariably caused a smile of the audience. His charm is impossible not to succumb, even if they are heroes, roughly speaking, "negative." Moreover, the actor worked almost always on the same paint, using several purely “Brondukov” stamps, peculiar only to him. Borislav Brondukov had the main roles - the tragic role of a thief in the film "Stone Cross", for which he received a diploma from the III All-Union Film Festival for the best male role (1968, Leningrad) and the role of Stepchak in the movie "Big Talk" (diploma of the XIX All-Union Film Festival, 1981, Vilnius) and others. B.N. Brondukov was married to actress Ekaterina Brondukova. He had two sons - Bogdan and Constantine. After the first stroke, it became hard for Brondukov to pronounce the text, so more than thirty roles played later in 1984 were voiced by Igor Yefimov or the Ukrainian actor Anatoly Yurchenko. Since 1997 - the actor in the movie did not act because he was seriously ill: suffered two heart attacks, lost his speech. Horuslav Nikolaevich Brondukov died on March 10, 2004 in Kiev, Ukraine. The actor was buried on March 12, 2004 at the Baykove cemetery of Kiev (station number 33, row number 2).
