Nikita Bogolyubov was born in Leningrad, USSR (now St. Petersburg, Russia). He had his first taste of being an entertainer via ice skating when he was only four years old. His family immigrated to the US when Nikita was eight years old which allowed him to stay fluent in both English and Russian.
Nikita's first primetime moment came from NBC's PRIME SUSPECT where he had a scene opposite of Maria Bello. Wanting to showcase more of his versatility, he looked into collaborating with American Film Institute (AFI) fellows.
AFI alumni Max Weissberg's film KARAGANDA is currently making waves in the festival circuit. The film already has 6 award wins, an official selection in 22 festivals, and has premiered in 12 countries.
Benjamin Bondar's PERSECUTED hits #3 on the Top Films chart in Apple iTunes.

Most recently, Nikita guest starred in an episode of Marvel's Iron Fist for Netflix.
