Georgi Millyar(† 89)

Actor | Moscow, Russian Empire
† died 27 years ago

Георгий Милляр родился 7 ноября 1903 года в Москве в семье Франца де Мильё, французского инженера-мостостроителя, уроженца Марселя, приехавшего в Россию на работу, и дочери иркутского золотопромышленника Елизаветы Алексеевны Журавлёвой. Детство мальчика проходило в роскоши. Но отец умер рано, в 1906 году в Ялте, когда сыну не исполнилось и трёх лет. Ещё до начала Первой мировой войны вдова де Мильё переехала из Москвы в Геленджик. После 1917 года семья осталась без родных и без денег, квартира в Москве и дом в Геленджике были конфискованы. Частицу «де» предусмотрительно убрали из подправленной фамилии, знание иностранных языков Георгий Францевич всю жизнь не указывал в анкетах, хотя свободно владел французским и немецким. Он работал в геленджикском театре бутафором, но, мечтая о сцене, учил все роли. Дебют актёра состоялся в спектакле «Золушка». Актриса, игравшая заглавную роль, заболела, и Милляр её подменил. Неожиданный дебют прошёл удачно, и на плечи юного Милляра возложили ещё одну обязанность — быть «скорой помощью». Так в 1920 году с женской роли началась актёрская карьера Георгия Францевича. В 1924 году он уже известный провинциальный актёр — поступает в Школу юниоров при Московском театре Революции (ныне Театр им. Маяковского). Георгий Милляр в роли Бабы-Яги. Милляр был участником многих спектаклей, оставшихся навсегда в памяти московских театралов: Герцог Альбано («Озеро Люль»), Мокроносов («Конец Криворыльска»), Пикель («Гоп-ля, мы живем»),аптекарь («Ромео и Джульетта»), Атташе («Голгофа»), Болтиков («Инга»), Имангужа («Поэма о топоре»), м-р Гоукер («Улица радости»), граф Людовико («Собака на сене»). Последующий этап в творческой жизни Георгия Милляра связан с именем известного мастера детского кино А. А. Роу. Режиссёр-сказочник нашёл в актёре единомышленника, и дружба их длилась более трёх десятков лет. Милляр — ярко выраженный характерный артист, мастер гротеска и буффонады. Уникальный голос, старчески дребезжащий, переламывающийся на утробное сопение, как нельзя лучше подходил для озвучивания сказочных злодеев, в первую очередь Бабы-Яги, Кощея Бессмертного, Чудища морского и т. д. Практически сам изобрёл костюм и грим Бабы-Яги — грязное серое тряпьё, наверченное на туловище и голову, седые патлы, большой нос с бородавками, торчащие клыки, безумно поблёскивающие глаза. Баба-Яга Милляра получилась не просто страшной, зловещей и жуткой, но и в какой-то степени хрестоматийной. Кощея Бессмертного Милляр играл, используя своё крайне худощавое телосложение и знаменитый голос (по поводу телосложения следует заметить, что фильм снимался во время Великой Отечественной Войны, и киностудия была эвакуирована в Среднюю Азию, где накануне съёмок актёр перенес малярию, вследствие которой весил во время съёмок всего 48 кг). Георгий Милляр сыграл тридцать больших ролей, принял участие в дублировании семидесяти картин, озвучивал сотню мультипликационных фильмов. Георгий Францевич Милляр скончался 4 июня 1993 года. Похоронен на Троекуровском кладбище (участок № 3).

His autobiography, Histoire de ma vie (Story of My Life), is regarded as one of the most authentic sources of the customs and norms of European social life during the 18th century.

He often signed his works Jacques Casanova de Seingalt after he began writing in French following his second exile from Venice. He has become so famous for his often complicated and elaborate affairs with women that his name is now synonymous with "womanizer".

He spent his last years in the Dux Chateau (Bohemia) as a librarian in Count Waldstein's household, where he also wrote the story of his life.
