In February 1945 he graduated from junior lieutenant school. After the war, he continued to serve in artillery (in the Central Group of Forces). After the Victory, he taught at the School of Sergeants in Vienna, but dreamed about the stage. In January 1947, Junior Lieutenant Mironov, having left the Soviet Army, came to Moscow to enter GITIS. In 1947-1951 he studied at the Moscow City Theater School (since 1950 - GITIS). Since 1951 - actor of the Kaliningrad Regional Drama Theater.

Many years later, Alexei Ivanovich will be disappointed in the art of the theater. Ironically, he will forever leave the stage of the theater, bearing the name of the Soviet Army. But in the movie he fell in love for life.
