Marcel Iureş


  • Actor
  • Born: 02.08.1951 in Băileşti (Dolj)
Graduate of the Institute of Theatre and Film "I.L.Caragiale" (class of 1978). In 1998 he founds the “ ACT”  Theatre in Bucharest , the first independent theatre company in Romania. He is one of the great character actors, but, although his work is now well known throughout the world, because of his roles in popular Hollywood blockbusters like Mission Impossible and Pirates of the Caribbean, few people outside of the industry know who he is. British audiences have probably seen him most often on TV (‘Spooks’, ‘Foyle’s War’, ‘Cambridge Spies’) without quite being able to put a finger on the man behind the role. Part of the reason is that Marcel Iures inhabits a classic tradition in which the craft of acting comes before celebrity. Another part of the problem is that Iures built his career and continues to work in Eastern Europe, in spite of his frequent forays to Hollywood, New York and London.
