Gheorghe Dinică (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈɡe̯orɡe diˈnikə]; January 1, 1934 – November 10, 2009) was a Romanian actor.[1]

Dinică showed an early interest in acting, being part of different amateur theater troupes since he was 17. In 1957, he entered The National Institute of Theatre and Cinematography Art in Bucharest. He graduated in 1961, already drawing public attention with the role of Inspector Goole in the graduation play An Inspector Calls. Since then, Gheorghe Dinică performed for some of the most important Romanian theatres:

Dinică was also a Romanian director and popular film actor, thus acting mostly in Romanian films. Like the French actor Alain Delon, Dinică refused to act in movies produced in the United States.

Since 2002, Dinică was an honorary member of the society of I.L.Caragiale National Theatre. He is also an honorary citizen of the city of Bucharest. He was awarded the "Faithful Service" Order in the Grand Officer class.

Dinica died of cardiac arrest at Floreasca Emergency Hospital, Bucharest. For his popularity in Romania, he received an offer from Walt Disney Pictures, and provides the voice of Scrooge McDuck in 1996 for the Romanian version of the series, Duck Tales.[2]
