Jurij Zrnec

A member of the SNT Drama Ljubljana ensemble since 2003.



Jurij Zrnec completed his secondary education at the High School of Design and studied stage acting at the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television, University of Ljubljana. In 2003 he became a member of the Drama Ljubljana resident ensemble and has created more than a hundred roles of classical and contemporary drama repertoires. He is a truly versatile actor and a master of all genres. Although the general public knows him primarily as a scriptwriter and host of entertainment programmes and as an actor starring in humorous series, he is likewise an indispensable member of the ensemble and its leading man. He has appeared in several Slovenian comedy TV series and feature films, most notably a hugely popular youth comedy Let’s Go Our Own Way by Miha Hočevar, and Awakenings by Peter Bratuša, a film of acting bravura by the entire cast. Zrnec is also a screenwriter and director and is occasionally involved in music projects. He has often broken new ground with his major acting and music projects and television shows as well as successful live performances in largest Slovenian venues.
