Vlady began performing at the age of 7 in Moscow, Russia. At thirteen he moved to Melbourne, Australia, where he got involved in the striving theatre scene. In 2005 he completed a Diploma of Film and TV at Footscray City College Film and TV School, before going on to Victoria University to study a Bachelor of Arts (Performance Studies). Vlady also continued his acting pursuits outside of university appearing in commercials and short films, as well as Comedy Channel's TV series The Power of One. In 2007, Vlady T played the part of Noah Joad in Heidelberg Theatre Company's production of The Grapes of Wrath. The play won 7 Victorian Drama League's "Gold" Awards, including Best Production and was mentioned in Victorian Parliament by an MP, who congratulated Vlady T and the other cast members on a great performance. In 2007, Vlady resigned from his university course after accepting an offer to play the Wirechief in the mini-series The Pacific, produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. Since finishing work on this project, Vlady has acted in a Cannes Critics' Week and Sundance award-winning short film Deeper Than Yesterday and been involved in several Australian feature films, including The Wedding Party, Any Questions For Ben?, Johnny Swade, Made in Australia and The Dream Children, a controversial drama, dealing with issues of gay marriage and child adoption.
