Iurie Darie (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈjuri.e ˈdari.e]; 14 March 1929 – 9 November 2012) was a Romanian actor.[1] He was born in Vadul-Raşcov, Soroca, Kingdom of Romania. He made his debut in cinematography in 1953.


In October 2010, a Romanian newspaper published an uncensored photo shoot involving Darie and actress Anca Pandrea, then his wife of nearly a quarter century, partially naked in sex-mimicking scenes. One of the published photographs shows Darie licking on his wife's left breast. The actor and his spouse allegedly stated that they have an active sex life and that they would be perfect in an X-rated movie because "we are good at it".[2] The pictorial stirred numerous negative reactions from conservative journalists, bloggers but also co-workers[3][4] of Darie. The controversy was further fueled by another statement made by Pandrea, who confessed she wouldn't mind if her husband were to be dubbed "the porn grandfather".[5]


During his last years Darie suffered from diverse health problems including respiratory and cardiac insufficiency and also a stroke. He died on 9 November 2012, aged 83, in Bucharest, surrounded by his family.
