Tiberius Zavelea



I can’t say that I sought to be an actor, but rather it was acting that sought me.

Right now, I would like to get involved in as many projects as possible, to find out where I’m headed, and to try to work with as many people as possible, ultimately so that I can form a team.

Tiberius Zavelea


(b. 2000, Constanța)

At the age of just thirteen, Tiberius had the opportunity to work with the only lycée theatre company in Constanța at that time. Throughout his six years in the AICI company, he took part in numerous festivals, including I.D. Fest, Bacău; AmFiTeatru, Botoșani; and OKaua, Bucharest, winning prizes for the parts he played in various shows.

After finishing lycée, he moved to Bucharest so that he could study acting at the Ion Luca Caragiale National University of Theatrical and Cinematic Arts, in the classes of Mihaela Sîrbu and Florin Grigoraș. Although his experience as a student was a pleasant one, he had the misfortune to spend two terms in pandemic conditions, although this did not stop him absorbing new knowledge through alternative working methods.

After returning from the online medium, Tiberius also worked with the film and choreography departments, taking part in his fellow students’ exam projects as a means of developing all the skills he had acquired. Outside university, he appeared in the film Metronome, directed by Alexandru Belc, which was awarded the Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2022.

At present, Tiberius has obtained his Degree in the Art of the Actor and has embarked on an M.A. in acting at the same university.
