Born: 16 May 1985
Best known as: Viktor Krum in the movie Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Stanislav Ianevski had the small role of Viktor Krum in the 2005 film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The film was based on the fourth book in the Harry Potter series by author J.K. Rowling. Krum is a student wizard and quidditch expert from a rival school called Durmstrang; he competes in the Triwizard Tournament with Potter (played by Daniel Radcliffe), Fleur Delacour (Clémence Poésy) and Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson). Ianevski, like Krum, is of Bulgarian descent; he was spotted by a casting director while attending an international school in London. Goblet of Fire was his first acting role. He also appeared in the horror film Hostel: Park II (2007, with Bijou Phillips).
Extra credit: The actor's name is sometimes spelled as Yanevski or Janevski... The character of Krum (and thus, Ianevski) did not appear in the fifth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007).
