Ravil Isyanov’s star has steadily increased over the last 30 years, with NCIS LA introducing him to a new generation of admirers.
Over the years, the Soviet-born American actor has appeared in a slew of films and television episodes, including Defiance and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
He d1ed on September 29 at the age of 59, after battling a long-term illness.
It has yet to be determined what his protracted illness was.
Thousands of followers flocked to social media to express their admiration for the actor, demonstrating his celebrity and talent.
“This makes me so sad!” said @BPuzzlePiece90 on Twitter. Kirkin was one of my fave ‘NCISLA’ characters! Ravil Isyanov, rest in peace!”
“RIP Ravil Isyanov,” @ihateclaims added. He was one of those individuals whose face you recognized before you knew his name.”
“Kirkin is brilliant.” I really like his relationship with Deeks! “Fly high, Ravil.” @AngelaLennon18 made a comment.
“Very sad,” commented @nicolacrafty1, “he was fantastic as Kirkin fair play, loved watching him with Deeks.”
“On NCIS, I really enjoyed Kirkin as a character. It terrible that they k1ll3d him off, and it sucked even more because life is now imitating art. “Ravil, please return home,” tweeted @gdinc.
Isyanov was born on August 20, 1962, in Voskresensk, Russia, which was then part of the USSR.
He began acting at an early age and went on to study directing at the Perm Institute of Culture in 1980.
However, in 1982, he had to discontinue his studies in order to complete a two-year required military service in the Soviet Air Force.
Once this was completed, he returned to acting, laying the groundwork for the successful career that fans now know him for.
In 1994, he played Marku in EastEnders, which gave him his first major break.
Following that, he appeared in films such as GoldenEye, The Jackal, and Holes, all directed by James Bond.
He has also appeared in a number of television shows, including Agents of SHIELD, The Americans, and GLOW.
Fans continued to express their sadness on social media, with @x chloe456 x posting, “So sad. I adored him as Kirkin. R.I.P.”
