Alexander Sergeyevich Lenkov (Russian: Алекса́ндр Серге́евич Ленько́в; 17 May 1943 – 21 April 2014) was a Soviet-Russian film, stage and voice actor. He is probably best known for his voice acting in animated films and dubbing the foreign movies to Russian. He is the Russian voice of Mundungus Fletcher in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010).

Alexander Lenkov was born in the town of Rasskazovo in Tambov Oblast, Russia, in 1943. His family soon moved to Moscow where he had lived ever since. In 1961–64 studied at the school-studio of Yuri Zavadsky at the Mossovet Theatre. Upon graduation Lenkov became an actor of the Mossovet Theatre.

Lenkov was a character actor whose career spanned over five decades. He starred in over a hundred feature and television films and in over 60 theatre productions.[1] Taught at Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography (a.k.a. VGIK) in 2004–2014.

In 2001 he received two TEFIs for his work on television.[2] Was awarded the Honored Artist of Russia in 1980 and the People's Artist of Russia in 1997.

Alexander Lenkov pours his soul into his character, creating a delightful and fascinating eccentric.

He was married to his childhood sweetheart Elena from the early 1960s until his death. The couple had a daughter Ekaterina (b. 1969) together.

Lenkov died from a long illness on 21 April 2014 in Moscow, aged 70.[3][4] He was buried at the Troyekurovskoye Cemetery in Moscow.[5]
