For almost a month he lay unconscious and the doctors were barely able to save him. Almost all of the family’s savings were spent on treatment at the Bakulev Institute. His mother took care of him.
Anatoly Vedenkin did not get out of bed, he was almost completely paralyzed. His mother, shortly before his death, said: “My son is affected by both hemispheres of the brain. Often he began to cry. He likes to watch TV. He sees himself on the screen, friends. Emotions break through. This has been going on for many years.”
Died December 7, 2005. He was buried at the 14th section of the Kotlyakovsky cemetery in Moscow.
Personal life of Anatoly Vedenkin:
He was repeatedly married.
In his youth, he had a long relationship with Lyudmila Gurchenko.
According to Vedenkin’s mother, they lived in a civil marriage for about two years. She said: “The son had just come from the army then. A young handsome guy. Lucy took him.” They lived on Mayakovka in Gurchenko’s apartment. According to Vedenkin’s mother, they parted because of Gurchenko’s addiction to alcohol: “Once they, together with Tolya, took borscht in a can from their mother by metro. Lucy was, as always, drunk. They had a fight. then I cried for a long time: “Why did he act so boorishly with me? I won’t drink anymore! “Gurchenko drank vodka then a lot. Her drunkenness reached outrageousness, she even began to sell things from home. If only she could find money for booze. Of course, I didn’t really like it. And Tolya, too. Therefore, the gap between them happened somehow immediately. Tolya ran away from her. Together they were not for long, they lived in a civil marriage for two years. ”
Together they played in the 1972 film Summer Dreams. According to the plot, Gurchenko and Vedenkin played husband and wife there.

Last interview with Anatoly Vedenkin
There are actors whom everyone knows by sight, but no one remembers their names. Anatoly Vedenkin belonged to just such a category of people in this public profession. Therefore, it is not surprising that one fine day he was simply struck out of cinematic life, written off. Many of his colleagues in the shop are sure that the popular actor has long been dead. Otherwise, he would certainly show up. After all, he is remembered as a nice guy, the ringleader of any company, a lover of drinking and carousing in a big way.
More than a hundred films have accumulated in his creative baggage: “Do not shoot at white swans”, “The young peasant woman”, “Say a word about the poor hussar”, “Anchor, more anchor!”, “Tavern on Pyatnitskaya”, ” Love in Russian.
But here’s the paradox, for thirty years of his career, he has never had a single interview. Probably, journalists did not consider this person worthy of publication. And when they came to their senses, it was too late. Now he is unlikely to tell how he was friends with Yevgeny Leonov, how he drank with Valery Nosik, how he had an affair with Lyudmila Gurchenko. For more than five years, the popular actor Anatoly Vedenkin has not risen from his bed and is learning to speak again.
A typical high-rise building on Sokolnicheskaya Square. Construction work has been going on near the house for more than a year. The monotonous noise of excavators and the rough abuse of workers are the only sounds that reach the deaf apartment on the thirteenth floor, where the popular actor Anatoly Vedenkin lives. For more than five years he has not risen from the bed and does not go out. Fresh air rushes over his face only when he is loaded on a stretcher into an ambulance.
Spacious apartment with modest decoration. Nothing has changed here since Soviet times. Vedenkin himself was unpretentious in everyday life, and he easily spent the money he earned on his beloved women and friends. Today, neither one nor the other remains next to him.
Living room. Once this small walk-through room was filled with fun, the smell of strong drinks and an endless stream of actor’s tales. In the center was a round table, on which stocks of delicacies and champagne did not dry out. Eminent actors gathered at this table every evening. Now this place is occupied by a bulky bed for bedridden patients. There is no trace of the former fun. And instead of guests, a fragile old woman, the mother of Anatoly Vedenkin, is on duty day and night near the actor.
At the age of 86, this woman took up the upbringing of her only son again.
Anatoly has been waiting for me since morning. Worried. After all, this was his first meeting with a journalist. I was forty minutes late. The sick man struggled with sleep with all his might. The once strong man was embarrassed to appear helpless in front of me.
“And I’m already going to get my son a chicken,” Anatoly Vedenkin’s mother tells me.
– We have delicious grilled chicken fried in a stall nearby. And inexpensive.
For several years now, Valentina Nikolaevna has been spending her entire miserable pension on the needs of her seriously ill son. And for the same amount of time, unsuccessfully knocking around the thresholds of medical institutions in the hope of returning Anatoly to normal life.
Anatoly Vedenkin used to get upset why journalists didn’t call him, why they didn’t ask for an interview. Finally, a holiday has come on his street. The actor rejoiced at the arrival of the journalist like a small child.
“So glory came to me,” he barely pronounces and tries to wipe away a tear that has imperceptibly rolled out with his inactive hand.
After the interview, the actor did not live even two months. He passed away in Moscow on December 7, 2005 after a serious long illness. The actor Anatoly Anatolyevich Vedenkin was buried at the 14th section of the Kotlyakovsky cemetery in Moscow.
