Who was Zoran Radmilović?

Zoran Radmilović was a Serbian actor, beloved for some of the most memorable roles in the history of former Yugoslav cinema.

He studied law, architecture and philology at the University of Belgrade, only to discover acting as his true calling. After graduating at Drama Arts Academy he joined Beogradsko dramsko pozoriste. In 1968 he joined Atelje 212 Theatre, where he became famous for his role of Kralj Ibi, during which he showed great improvisational ability.

He preferred theatre to film and television, but he nevertheless managed to give memorable performances. International audiences know him best for his role in 1971 cult film WR: Mysteries of the Organism. Audiences in former Yugoslavia know him best for his roles of Bili Piton in 1982 cult comedy The Marathon Family and Radovan Treći in Dušan Kovačević's play with the same name Radovan Treći.

One of his last roles was in 1985 film When Father Was Away on Business, in which he appeared together with Slobodan Aligrudić. He died shortly after that film won Golden Palm at Cannes Film Festival, and Aligrudić died shortly after him, leading many film critics of former Yugoslavia to state that "heaven had received a huge boost".
