Marcel Iures


8/2/1951 (71 years old)

Romanian actor Marcel Iures took his cinematic bow in the early '70s and spent the next several decades specializing in character portrayals. He often appeared as distinguished and educated men (Pope Pius XII in the 2002 Amen; a doctor in The Cave [2005]; a professor in Youth Without Youth [2007]) or Eastern European ethnic types. Iures' role in the 1994 Interview With the Vampire for director Neil Jordan -- that of a Parisian vampire -- not only took full advantage of the actor's near-Transylvanian origins but channeled his ruddy looks into something far more sinister than his usual evocations.
