Roland Trebicka was born in Korçë, southern Albania in 1947.

During those years, it was in the various Estrada of the Albanian cities that many actors, Aleko Prodani, Koço Devole, Zef Deda, Mehdi Male, Behar Mera etc., who later would become famous, would have their debuts. In 1971 Trebicka joined the National Theatre of Albania (then known as Teatri popullor). He worked in the theatre until 1999. After a period of three years at the “Publimedia” company, Trebicka came back to the National Theatre.
He peaked with the comedy Pallati 176 and his role of Jovan Bregu. The show has appeared over 500 times, and has had a record of spectators, although it can be often seen on TV. In addition, Trebicka had the roles of Gennarino for the “Big Magic”, Sganarel in Don Juan, Khlestakov in The Government Inspector, ecc.
The career of Trebicka in cinematography started with that of Kosta in the movie Debatik in 1961, when he was still a child. Other notable movies where he has participated are Ëndërr për një karrige (Vaska) dhe and Koncert në vitin 1936 (Nasi).
In 2011 Trebicka had a lung cancer which forced him to stay away from the scene for two years and played in the show Endrra e Ismail Qemalit (The dream of Ismail Qemali), of Spiro Duni. He came back for some more performances in early 2013, but died eventually from lung cancer on March 6, 2013.
