The family lived in а two-room apartment on the outskirts of the capital, on Surikov Street in Sokol.As a child, Vsevolod dreamed of becoming a pilot.When the Great Patriotic War began, Vsevolod was fifteen years old. He wanted to go to the front and enrolled in an aviation technical school, which he graduated at the end of the war, in 1945, but in a technical field and not in the flight specialty. Тo the great disappointment of Vsevolod Safonov, the medical commission did not allow him military service for health reasons.Friends of Safonov with whom he attended an amateur theater club recommended that he try to enter a theatrical school.

While working in East Germany, Vsevolod learned German and spoke fluently on it.After his return to the Soviet Union in 1955 he was accepted into the troupe of the Theater-Studio of the Film Actor at the Lenfilm studios in Leningrad and began actively working in Soviet cinema.

Since 1958 he served in the National Film Actors' Theatre in Moscow.

Vsevolod Safonov's first major role in cinema was of Lieutenant Yuri Kerzhentsev in the war film "Soldiers" (1956) directed by Alexander Ivanov, which brought the actor initial recognition.

Safonov became famous with the detective film The Case of the Motley (1958) directed by Nikolai Dostal, where the actor played the role of police lieutenant Sergei Korshunov, investigator of the Moscow Criminal Investigations Department.The actor received all-union stardom in 1970 after the drama Belorussian Station directed by Andrei Smirnov appeared on the country's cinema screens, in which Safonov played the role of the Soviet journalist Alexei Kiryushin, a former front-line soldier.
