ALL-NEW EPISODE SET TO AIR ON FEBRUARY 6, 2015
LOS ANGELES (January 7, 2015) – Rising Romanian actor TUDOR MUNTEANU will hit living rooms across America with his appearance in an all-new episode of the CBS police drama, HAWAII FIVE-O.
Currently in its 5th season, HAWAII FIVE-O follows Detective Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) as he leads an elite task force whose mission is to eliminate crime on the beaches of the Aloha State. In the episode titled “Powehiwehi,” scheduled to air on February 6th, Munteanu joins in the action as Emil, causing chaos on the Islands.
Munteanu was thrilled to learn that not only would he be working with a talented group in front of the camera, but that veteran actor Peter Weller (RoboCop, Sons of Anarchy) would be directing the episode. Munteanu adds, "Incredibly rich and fulfilling experience for me. Everyone involved, both on and off set, was extremely professional and nice to me. Peter Weller is very direct, clear and works incredibly fast. He staged one of my scenes in more dynamic rhythm than what I had done for him in the audition room. I liked it. It's crucial to be very well prepared, but equally important to be able to take an adjustment on the fly and go in a new direction. Outside the set - I had Hawaii - for the first time ever.”
Born and raised in Bistrita, Transylvania, Romania, Munteanu began performing while still in high school. His passion for the craft lead him to study at the National University of Theatre and Cinema in Bucharest, earning his BFA in Performance Arts. He has performed numerous times at the National Theatre of Bucharest and The Comedy Theatre; and earned ‘Best Choreography’ at The International Festival of Theatre of Casablanca, Morocco, and ‘Best Play’ at The Young Actors Gala, Mangalia, Romania. He has gained fans across Europe for his work in film, commercials and as a series regular on a Romanian TV show.
Munteanu made his way to America to first study at Cal Arts (California Institute of the Arts) and then at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts Acting Conservatory, where he was awarded the Charles Jehlinger Award for Best Actor. Since graduating, this talented actor has been earning a solid reputation and credits in the States on the big and small screens.
Tudor Munteanu is represented by talent manager Sean Kurzweil of Kurzweil Talent Management.
