The brother of actress Tamara Shayne, he was to join the Moscow Arts Theatre, but World War I intervened, and then he fought with General Wrangell and the White Armies. Although he received few significant roles, he was outstanding in Rien qu'un coeur solitaire (1944) as Ike Weber and in Le criminel (1946) as Gen. Meinike, where his character dominates the first 15 minutes of the film. His performance in Danny Kaye's La vie secrète de Walter Mitty (1947) is also highly regarded. His performance in Pour qui sonne le glas (1943) was considered outstanding, but was cut from the release print. Not an ambitious actor, Shayne was dedicated to his family, including his second wife, Marjorie.
