BiographyEdit

Ivo Gregurević was born in Donja Mahala near Orašje, today Bosnia and Herzegovina, on 7 October 1952, to parents Marko and Jela Gregurević.

Gregurević graduated from the Drama Academy in Zagreb and has worked in over 90 movies and television programs since the late 1970s; in particular, he acted in almost all of Croatian movies after gaining independence in 1991. He also had few starring roles, best known being in 1991 film Čaruga. Croatian film director Snježana Tribuson has stated that she had intentionally cast Gregurević in almost all of her movies.[1]

Besides movie roles, he made the successful appearances in popular Croatian TV-series, Velo misto, playing the Netjak, and Marko Kosmički in Odmori se, zaslužio si.

He has won two Croatian Actors' Association Awards for Šokica (1998) and Duga mračna noć (2006). In 2005 he was ranked second in the Croatian-based film magazine Hollywood in the "Best Croatian Male Movie Stars of All Time" list.

He was married Croatian actress Dubravka Ostojić with whom he had a son Marko born in 1978, but after they were divorced, Gregurević in 2002 started a relationship with late Croatian actress Dolores Lambaša. Last years he was in the relationship with, to media unknown woman, who works as an inspector in the Ministry of the Interior.

Ivo Gregurević died in his own home in Zagreb, on 2 January 2019 at the age of 66.[2] He was buried in birth town Donja Mahala, on 8 January 2019.
