Bio

Pasha D. Lychnikoff is a Russian-born American actor best known for his recurring role as Blazanov in the western television series Deadwood, from 2005-2006.

Born in Moscow, a student of Moscow Academy of Dramatic Arts, Pasha appeared on Moscow's stages in such productions as Googol's Inspector General and Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment.

In the early 90s Pasha moved to America to pursue his acting career in the United States. Arriving at JFK Airport with five dollars in his pocket, speaking only a few words of English, he made his way to Brighton beach, to Harlem, to Hell's Kitchen, and then to Los Angeles to act.

Insights from Jonathan Banks and encouragement from private lessons with The Groundlings' creator Gary Austin gave Pasha the advantage he needed. Jumping the fence at Twenty Century Fox paid off, landing Pasha his first television guest role on NYPD Blue.

Lychnikoff continues to build an impressive resume in both film and television. He has starred as Balzanov, a Telegraph operator, in a lawless town in the second and third seasons of the critically acclaimed HBO series Deadwood.

He appeared in Wayne Wang's 1000 Years of Good Prayers and Mike Nichols' Charlie Wilson's War written by Aaron Sorkin. He is also one of the leads in Lions Gate's Trade Welcome to America with Kevin Kline directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner, produced by Ronald Emmerich.

Pasha's TV credits include a series regular role in David Milch and Tony Yarkovich's TV drama Big Apple and a recurring one in the short-lived sitcom Bent.

He has had more than 30 TV guest appearances in shows such as Without a Trace, CSI: Miami, The Shield, NYPD Blue, Alias, The Agency, Nash Bridges and others.

His feature film credits include Miami Vice with Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell directed by Michael Man, Air Force One with Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman and Playing God with Angelina Jolie, Timothy Hutton and David Duchovny.

Pasha has a big passion for theatre which extended beyond acting to producing. The Shelter was his production debut at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles. The play got five Ovation Awards nominations in 2006 in five different categories including the World Premier Play, Play Intimate Theater, Direction of a Play, the Ensemble Performance and Lighting Design.

His performance in the play got him rave reviews by a number of critics.
