Dragan Bjelogrlić is a Serbian actor, director and producer. As a 15-year-old he debuted in movies, playing a memorable role of Sava in war drama »Boško Buha«, a 1978 film that achieved sizable popularity. He followed that up in the coming years with other roles in TV series, short and feature films. By mid-1980’s Bjelogrlic was an established young actor in Yugoslavia. In 1987 he became one of the central cast members on the hugely popular drama television series »Bolji život«. Playing the role of Slobodan made Bjelogrlić a recognizable star all across the country. He is considered somewhat of a »Serbian Robert Redford« by many. His monotone voice and tired face lead him to be cast as a gangster or criminal figure in movies such as »Rane« (The Wounds), where he plays a hot-headed Serbian mafioso, with a short temper that only he could provide for the movie that’s considered one of the cult Serbian gangster movies. His 2010 film »Montevideo, God Bless You!« was selected as the Serbian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards. His last movie was crime drama »Južni vetar« (South Wind) in 2018. Right now he is producing TV series »Senke nad Balkanom«.
