: Беким Фехмију
; 1 June 1936 – 15 June 2010) was a Yugoslavian
theater and film actor of Albanian
ethnicity. He was the first Eastern European
actor to star in Hollywood
during the Cold War
Fehmiu was born in Sarajevo, Kingdom of Yugoslavia, into an ethnic Albanian family. His father Ibrahim adopted his high-school nickname Fehmiu as a surname replacing the original Imer Halili. The family moved to Shkoder, Albania, and after three years to Prizren, in 1941, where Bekim spent his childhood. He was part of the acting club at his high school in Prizren, and after graduation he became a member of County popular theatre in Pristina, the only professional Albanian language theatre in Yugoslavia. Fehmiu seemed poised for stardom in Hollywood as well, but his first American film, The Adventurers, was a critical and financial disaster which "ruined any chances for Fehmiu to achieve similar stardom in Hollywood". He played the role of the busy father in Raimondo Del Balzo's heartbreaking film The Last Snows of Spring in 1973, and the role of a Palestinian terrorist in John Frankenheimer's 1977 masterpiece Black Sunday. Despite his Hollywood films achieving little critical success, he excelled in European art house cinema as well as in the theatre, which was his natural medium. By the end of his career he had acted in nine languages, including French, Spanish and Italian.
