Aleksey Faddeev has been working at the Maly Theatre for more than 10 years. By now he has grown into a very strong and charismatic actor, whose acting skills grow from role to role. Faddeev is not «tied» to any specific role, and therefore his talent is equally successfully revealed in the works of the most diverse genre. Aleksey is equally good in lyrical, and in dramatic, and in highly grotesque roles. Magnificent physique, original individuality, rich inner world, balance of the body, powerful and beautiful vocal - all these wonderful qualities allow Aleksey to replenish his creative baggage with a variety of works practically every theatrical season. He has been the leading young actor of the Maly Theatre since mid-2000s.

The aсtor also regularly participates in musical concerts of the Maly Theatre.

Aleksey Faddeev is also known for starring roles in TV series: «Demons», «Return of Mukhtar-1», «Chief caliber», «Sea patrol», «Operative pseudonym», «Escape», «Satisfaction», «Totals», «Gypsies», «Investigation Committee», «Country 03», «Insomnia», «Search», «Farewell, Beloved!», and features: «Silencio», «Lynx», «Boris Godunov», «Harmony and Love», «Courier of special importance». Faddeev's most prominent role was in TV series «Institute for Noble Maidens», where Aleksey played a romantic lieutenant Evgeniy Butov.

In 2008, a booklet dedicated to Aleksey Faddeev was published as part of the series «The Library of the Maly Theatre» (author - a famous theatre critic Marina Gaevskaya), and was instantly sold out.
