Early life[edit]

Ivan was born on 15 January 1979 in Titovo Užice, Serbia, Yugoslavia.[1] During high school, he showed musical talent and he set up his own band, Rok Apoteka.[2]

Upon completing high school, Bošiljčić moved to Novi Sad to attend the Academy of Arts under Vida Ognjenović in 2001.[1] He later moved to Belgrade to pursue his acting career.


His first acting work was to provide the voices (dubbed in Serbian) for children's animated programs such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the part of Donatello and in Yu-Gi-Oh! as Joey Wheeler.[2] His first major role occurred in 2004 when he starred in a television film produced by the Radio Television of Serbia named "O štetnosti duvana" (About the dangers of tobacco).[2] National interest came after Bosiljčić acted in Stižu dolari (The dollars are coming).[3] He appeared in both seasons one and two as a young accountant.

Mostly a musical theater actor, some of his more well-known roles include "Cigani lete u nebo (Gypsies fly in the sky), Kiss me Kate, Chicago, Svetlosti pozornice (Stage Lights) and A Chorus Line.[1][4] All of these are performed at the Theatre on Terazije. He also stars in the emotional drama "Jasmin na stranputici" (Jasmin on the crossroads) in the Slavija Theatre in Belgrade.

In 2007 he became a regular in the famous musical Les Misérables at the Belgrade Madlenianum Opera House, while in 2012 he starred in te musical Rebecca in the same opera. Some other theatre productions he has appeared in are "Hamlet", "Bogojavljanska noć" (for which he received an award for the best young actor), "Mileva Einstein" and "Brzina tame" (The speed of the night). Bosiljčić also starred in the Theatre on Terazije production of "Maratonci trče počasni krug", which opened in May 2008. He is playing the role of Mirko Topalović.[5]

Bosiljčić acted in the popular RTS shows Bela Lađa (White Ship) and Ranjeni Orao (Wounded Eagle), where he was one of the main characters. In 2015 and 2016, he starred in the TV Prva remake of ER, Urgentni Centar (lit. Emergency Center) as Dr. Arsić, a role identical to Doug Ross, played by George Clooney. He has also had previous television roles as Nenad Aleksić in Ranjeni Orao and Bojan Lazarević in Ljubav i mržnja. He has also had minor role in the film "Spleen" produced by an Italian film maker with an Italian crew as well as Serbian movies "Strah od letenja" (Fear of flying) and "Moné".
