Victor Rebengiuc

born February 10, 1933

Victor George Rebengiuc is an award-winning Romanian film and stage actor, also known as a civil society activist.

Since 1957, he has been a member of the Bulandra Theater company, acting in more than 200 roles only on that stage.

Rebengiuc was celebrated for his stage performances, appearing in plays directed by, among others, Ciulei, Radu Penciulescu, Andrei Şerban, Cătălina Buzoianu, Yuri Kordonsky, Gábor Tompa and Alexandru Dabija.

Having had his breakthrough performance with Liviu Ciulei’s Padurea spanzuratilor (The Forest of the Hanged, 1964), Rebengiuc became a major figure in Romanian cinema and became especially renowned for his leading role in Stere Gulea’s Moromeţii (1987). He also starred in films by Dan Piţa and Lucian Pintilie.

Rebengiuc’s life under the communist regime provided him an anti-communist perspective, and some of his 1980s films were censored or banned by the country’s officials. In 1989, he took part in the Romanian Revolution, when he was among the people who stormed into the Romanian Television building and broadcast the downfall of Nicolae Ceauşescu and an end to communist rule. Rebengiuc subsequently spoke out against political forces he believes stand for the regime’s legacy in modern society, and called for the retrospective condemnation of communism. As a public figure, he has had a brief career in politics, and, since the mid-1990s, endorses non-governmental organizations.
