Dragomir Bojanić (Serbian Cyrillic: Драгомир Бојанић; 13 June 1933 – 11 November 1993), also known by his nickname Gidra, was a Serbian actor. In several Italian films he was credited as Anthony Ghidra.[1]

He appeared in many Yugoslav films, and even some international productions, usually playing villains.

The best known of such roles is Kondor, German secret agent in popular 1972 film Valter brani Sarajevo. He is, however, best known for the comical role of family patriarch Žika Pavlović, which he played 10 times in the Lude godine series.
