Igor Bogdanoff died today aged 72, six days after his twin brother Grichka
Eccentric Actors and French TV star twins who shot to fame in a 1980s sci-fi series and became infamous for their shared love of plastic surgery have both died of Covid within a week of each other. Igor Bogdanoff today died of coronavirus, six days after his twin brother Grichka passed away at a Paris hospital surrounded by his loved ones.
Grichka had been admitted to intensive care on December 15, the same day as his brother, with Covid-19 complications. It is understood that neither of the twins were vaccinated against coronavirus.
The twin brothers were 72 and known for their eclectic personalities and clothing, storytelling, television hosting and plastic surgery. Their enduring obsession with plastic surgery, which began in the 1990s, left them looking unrecognisable and they were often mocked for their appearance.
They were born in Gers in 1949 and had shot to fame in the 1980s on French television, helped by their boyish good looks, according to Le Figaro. Their star turn on the 1979 sci-fi programme Temps X was hugely popular, and ran for eight years.
In the show they donned cosmonaut outfits and imparted scientific facts. When they appeared on the red carpet in 2010 aged 60 for a 150th anniversary Chopard party, people were shocked by their appearance.
They were both understood to have had a number of chin and cheek implants, as well as botox and fillers.
Their stretched faces echoed the look of socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein, dubbed the ‘bride of Wildenstein.’
