Soviet theater and film actor, theater director. People's Artist of the USSR (1951) .
Born (16) October 28, 1896 in St. Petersburg. Mikhail Romanov's father was a shoemaker, his mother was a paramedic. At the age of twelve he was sent to the Commercial School. Science was easy for the proud "descendant from the bottom", and by the end of the general education course Misha Romanov was a recognized authority in the school, striking everyone with his memory, erudition and independent sharpness of judgment. In April 1917, his father suddenly dies. He had to support his family, and Romanov gets a job in the office of one of the Petrograd factories specializing in the production of rubber shoes. He was given a decent salary for those times, things were going well, his superiors appreciated him, and the young man decided to completely surrender himself to a successfully started career. Three months later, a trip to America loomed in front of him. As one of the most capable and promising administrators, the company recommended him for an internship at one of the related factories of the Russian-American Rubber Manufacture Partnership. A bright business perspective was opening up for the young businessman. However, fate was pleased to dispose of his abilities differently.
In the difficult days of 1919 for Petrograd, Romanov volunteered for the Red Army. After the defeat of Yudenich, he devoted himself to work in the army theater, tried to organize new circles and studios himself, worked in the Petrograd Proletkult theater, then left for the Leningrad Academic Drama Theater. In 1920 he was a student of a six-month course for cultural workers at the Political Department of the headquarters of the Petrograd fortified region. In 1920-1921 he was an artist of the theater of the Petrograd fortified area (later - the Petrograd military district). In December 1921, Mikhail was demobilized due to illness from the ranks of the Red Army and moved to the village of Rozhdestveno near Petrograd, to his mother, Sofya Nikolayevna Romanova, who lived there after the death of her husband and worked as a paramedic at a honey processing plant. From December 1921 to June 1923 he worked in an amateur theater organized by him in the village at the People's House. In 1924-1936 he was an actor and director of the Leningrad Theater named after A.S. Pushkin. In the cinema - since 1935. In the creative life of Romanov, a significant place was occupied by work on the radio. He was closely associated with the literary and dramatic editorial board of the Ukrainian radio. On the set of the film "Children of Captain Grant" (1935) Romanov met with actress Maria Strelkova. The old marriage, which seemed to all Romanov's relatives and friends, was broken. He threw everything - the theater, friends, Leningrad, - scandalously took someone else's wife, left with her to distant lands and began a new life. In 1936, Mikhail Fedorovich Romanov and Maria Pavlovna Strelkova moved to Ukraine and began work at the Russian Drama Theater in Kiev (since 1939 - the Lesya Ukrainka Theater), later Romanov became the chief director of this theater. In the early 1960s, staying at the Lesya Ukrainka Theater became very difficult for Romanov (due to his deteriorating health). He remained in Kiev only sparing the peace of his wife, Maria Pavlovna. She has not worked in the theater for a long time. A talented actress who left the stage very early due to illness, she was not satisfied with her life. The fate of Maria Pavlovna deeply saddened Mikhail Fedorovich, and how he could try to brighten up her existence. After Maria Strelkova died in November 1962, Mikhail Fedorovich could no longer stay in Kiev and firmly decided to leave for Moscow. When Yuri Zavadsky invited him to the Mossovet Theater, Romanov immediately agreed. And at the beginning of 1963, the question of Mikhail Fedorovich's move to Moscow was resolved.
The documentary film "Mikhail Romanov" (1968) is dedicated to the work of the outstanding actor and theater director. Mikhail Fedorovich Romanov passed away in Moscow on September 4, 1963 in the hotel room where he lived. The actor was buried at the Novodevichy cemetery.
