He was born to an Irish father (Arthur Rowe), hence his unusual (for Russia) family name, and a Greek mother.
Starting in 1930, he worked at Mezhrabpomfilm as an assistant director to Yakov Protazanov on the films Marionettes (1934) and Without Dowry (1937), as well as with other directors.
From 1937, he worked at the "Soyuzdetfilm" studio, later known as the Gorky Film Studio.
