Osip Naumovich Abdulov was born to a Jewish family in Łódź, Poland (then part of the Russian Empire) in 1900. He briefly studied at Moscow University (now Moscow State University) in 1917 before turning his interest to acting.
Abdulov began working at the Shalyapin studio in 1918, where he had first performing role in 1919. He worked at various theaters in Moscow during the 1920s and 1930s and joined the company of the Theater of the Mossovet in 1943.

He was involved in radio plays based on the dramatic works of Romain Rolland, Alphonse Daudet, Charles Dickens, Nikolay Gogol, and Maxim Gorky and took part in organizing artistic broadcasting for children. Abdulov worked as a news reader on Soviet radio during World War II.
