Biography
Formerly the premier dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, Alexander Godunov defected from Russia in 1979. Though he intended to continue pursuing ballet, Godunov eventually gave it up in favor of film acting. His best-remembered movie assignment was as a sullen Amish farmer in Witness (1985), a role he revised satirically in the 1994 comedy North. Alexander Godunov died in 1995 at the age of 45.
