Branko Supek was born on December 20, 1945 in Zagreb, Croatia, Yugoslavia. He attended and graduated from the High School of Music in Zagreb as a trumpet player. He then attended the Teachers’ Academy (majoring in English and literature) and the Academy of Dramatic Art, from which he graduated in 1971. Branko then worked as an actor at the Zagreb Youth Theater. He became a film actor at the same time and appeared in more that 10 films and 50+ TV and radio programs. Among these was his only Euro-western “Rampage at Apache Wells” (1965) as Jack Campbell. He won three acting awards during his career and was an avid boater sailing in many regattas on the Adriatic Sea. Branko died of cancer on November 5, 2003 in Zagreb, Croatia at the young age of 58. Today we remember him on what would have been his 65th birthday.
