The great actor left a trail in the golden age of our cinema!
The actor Voja Miric has died at the age of 86. He was an actor who achieved a large number of roles in the golden age of our cinema. Despite popularity, in the mid-eighties he left the acting and retreated to a peaceful life.
He was a Serbian film and television actor. He was born in Trstenik in 1933, and is best remembered for his role in the film "Dervish and Death" in the role of Ahmed Nurudin, especially remembered by older viewers for his impressive character.
Despite his popularity, in the mid-1980s he left acting and retreated into a peaceful life, far from the light of the stage and film reflectors.
He came onto the scene with a strange case: as a grammar school teacher from Kruševac, he left with a friend to try out a new performance by the city theater and got a role - an old man of eighty years. Soon he and his brother moved to Belgrade, enrolled in "Abrašević", and then at the Academy:
“And I came here by chance. I wanted to study building and architecture, my family wanted me to be a lawyer, and I went into acting” - said the actor.
He graduated in the class of professor Tanhofer and then started at the Novi Sad Theater, but after a military service he continued in the Belgrade drama, in order to finally go to the "liberals". In the film, he played fifty roles (ten major films), in 1964 won the Silver Arena for the film "Official Position" by Fadil Hadzic, and ten years later the Golden Arena for "Dervish and Death" by Zdravko Velimirovic.
