Marcel Iureş (Romanian pronunciation: [marˈt͡ʃel ˈjureʃ]; born August 2, 1951) is a Romanian stage and screen actor.[1]

Iureş was born 2 August 1951 in Băileşti, Romania[1] and is one of Romania's most acclaimed stage and film actors.[2] Iureş entered the Institutul de Arta Teatrala si Cinematografica in Bucharest in 1974 and graduated in 1978.[1] He has acted in films and on stage both in Romania and internationally, as well as playing at least ten roles on Romanian and British television.[1][3]

Theatrical career

He made his stage debut at the Bulandra Theatre, Romania, in the 1975 production of Ferma, playing George. From 1978 to 1981 he acted at the National Theatre, Cluj, in numerous roles such as Beckman in the play Afară în faţa uşii and Conifeul in Persii.[1] During the early 1980s, Iureş appeared at both the Bulandra and Odeon Theatres in Bucharest. Among his roles were the title roles in Shakespeare's were Hamlet, Henry IV and Richard III.[1]

He is the president of Teatrul ACT[4] (the first independent theatre in Romania[5]) of which he was one of the founders in 1995.[5] Iureş has starred there in various roles, including the title roles of Shakespeare's Richard II, Richard III (directed by Mihai Măniuţiu), and Hamlet (directed by Liviu Ciulei). He has also appeared in Fundaţia Teatrul ACT-staged shows such as Creatorul de Teatru (The Creator of the Theatre, directed by Alexandru Dabija), Cetatea Soarelui (Citadel of the Sun, directed by Mihai Măniuţiu), and Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape.[1] Iureş also continues to perform with the Bulandra Theatre, for whom he played the lead in a 2005 production of Luigi Pirandello's Henry IV.[3]

The quality of Iureş's performances in both Western and Romanian movies and also his stage performances have established him as one of the greatest actors in motion picture and theatre history.[citation needed] This in turn has resulted in Iureş receiving many accolades and nominations (in both Romania and abroad) throughout his career. Among these was the 2008 Marele Premiu Flacăra (the highest award of a set of Romanian press awards sponsored by ButanGas) for excellence in his profession.[6] He has continued to explore new artistic challenges such as voiceovers for Disney and in the world of computer games.[1] Iureş is the president and a judge of the Anonimul International Film Festival and also the president of Ideo Ideis Festival (an annual national theatre festival for teenagers).[1]

In 2007 Iureş volunteered his help in the Verde 003 project, which aims to build a better environment for all Romanians by planting vegetation.[1]

Filmography

Iureş made his film debut portraying Franz Liszt in the 1978 Romanian film Vis de ianuarie (January Dream). From the early 1980s and into the '90s, Iureş continued to build a screen career, appearing in many minor and major roles in Romania.[1]

Iureş's international film career sprang from the UK tour in 1994 of Mihai Maniutiu's production of Richard III, where he played the eponymous hero.[1] The role of Alexander Golitsyn in the 1996 film Mission Impossible was quickly followed by playing Dusan Gavrich in the 1997 film The Peacemaker,[2] starring George Clooney and Nicole Kidman.[7] Other film appearances include roles in Hart's War, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Goal!, Faimosul Paparazzo, Isolation, Vacanţa Cea Mare and Logodnicii Din America.[2]
