Before graduation Alexey Serebryakov has had six main roles. Desire to enter the theatrical University not crowned with success: the entrance exam was failed. Persistent guy tried to continue his studies at the Moscow energy Institute, but on the receipt it did not move. Talented Serebryakov decided not to spend years in the radio-television Department, when he received an offer to work in Syzran theatre. In the result, Alex began working in the drama theatre, though the boy at the time was only 17 years old.
The actor later recalled this as an act of adventure. It attracted not even the salary of a professional actor or public recognition, he went to the province to with all the youthful ardor «to sow reasonable, kind, eternal». But in the theater of Alexey worked only one season and returned to Moscow, where he decided to continue his education.
In 1982 already held the artist decided to tempt fate and to pass entrance examinations in the Metropolitan College. M. S. Shchepkin. Two years later Alexey Serebryakov moved to GITIS. Two years later he graduated and joined the troupe of the Studio under the direction of Oleg Tabakov. In 1991, Serebryakov left the Studio and began a new phase in my life. Following the performances with his participation took place on the stage of the Taganka.
Movie career of Alex is also updated with new roles. In 1989 he played the karate kid in the film «the Fan,» which brought him success and popularity. In 1991, the year Serebryakov played another combat role, almost Russian equivalent of Rambo, in the movie «Afghan breakdown». The success of this picture was deafening. The main key to its popularity was starring Italian Michele Placido, who was incredibly loved and known in Russia. However, Alex, the picture has brought its share of popularity and love of fans.
The popularity of young talented individuals grew rapidly. Numerous invitations on the film brought Serebryakov another success and a new experience. Movies with Aleksey Serebryakov wore a military-criminal in nature, but also enriched the genre of fighters. The film «the Highest measure» responded to a wide audience. In 1998, there was another leap in my career – Serebryakov received the title of Honored artist. But by the end of the Millennium, the actor began to appear less and not in such cash and well-known projects. In zero, the actor began to appear a lot in the series.
In 2000, the year she starred in the famous crime serial film «Gangster Petersburg». His character became involved in the main love triangle of pilot season. Alex wanted to give up the role, but the Director called the actor in person. But the decisive factor for Serebriakova was that his partners in the shooting was to become his longtime friends: Olga Drozdova and Dmitry Pevtsov. Alex agreed to play the role of a lawyer and made the right decision – the show became a cult.
In 2003, the year Serebryakov played a devoted patriot in the film adaptation of «BAJAZET» by Valentin Pikul.

Later the actor took part in filming many famous paintings, including the films «the 9th company», «penal battalion», «Children vanyuhina», «there was one woman» and others.
In 2009, the actor was invited to play a role in the film rare at that time for Rossi genre – sci-Fi action movie «Inhabited island». The film, though not paid off, but was a box office and had a lot of good reviews. The actor admitted that working in difficult action scenes was an interesting experience. The crew applied many techniques that are already widely used in the West, but it is not present in Russian cinema.
But at the same time, Alex was unhappy with the semantic component of the film. Despite the declared anti-utopian motives, the film did not reveal his idea and vision of society, from the perspective of Serebryakov. The actor himself even before the shooting wrote forty pages of edits and questions to the script that would close the logical inconsistencies and create a more believable world in terms of the desires and aspirations of the characters. Only a small number of amendments were adopted, many of irrationality was abandoned in favor of a beautiful moment.
Serebryakova upset this approach. He believes that fiction can expose the acute problems without risking negative reactions and accusations of insult, but the modern film distributors don’t like movies, they need entertainment, and technological innovations.
After a series of successful projects («the Apocalypse Code», «9 Rota», «stopping power») there was another increase. Alexey Serebryakov was awarded the title of people’s artist of Russia, which contributed to further growth in career.
In 2012, the year Alexey with family moved to Canada. It turned out to be a temporary solution, and the actor still lives in the country of a maple syrup. It was not shocking or a sign of immature perfectionism, the actor took the decision consciously, and in a serious age. It did not stop any legal delays or the need to answer not only for himself but for his family, no surprise, and even condemnation from fans and the press.

The essence of Nicholas and his father live in the North, they erected a house and opened a workshop. Closing his eyes to the hard work and spirituality, fate plays a cruel joke with them – it all falls down. Trouble and injustice spilling from everywhere: the earth I want to take, and the wife becomes the source of trouble. The root of all evil emphasizes the title of the painting. Leviathan – a mythological beast, however, became a metaphor of the state apparatus.
«Leviathan» has made ambiguous impression of Orthodox activists and some politicians of the Soviet school. A review of the film a wider audience was called into question. Poured a Barrage of criticism by the Bishop in the person of Valery Grishko. He was accused of a false attitude to Russian Orthodox Church. Representatives of political forces wonder how the Director and actors allowed themselves to denigrate the Church and all levels of government. Such a statement the crew was viewed as a significant insult to the filing of the lawsuit.
On the other hand, many critics have named «Leviathan» the most steamy and sincere picture of Russian life, though, and predicted that dark and violent the film will be difficult accepted by authorities and the mass audience, most of them got used to the light «popkornom» films.
It should be noted that the protection of the whole picture became deacon Andrei Kuraev. The Confessor described «Leviathan» as an anti-clerical film, which means the interference of the clergy in political Affairs. Scandal and disapproval did not stop the specified picture to be worthy of awards at international film festivals, «Leviathan» nominated for «Oscar».
