George Asenov, a brilliant actor from Sofia, Bulgaria has made a name for himself, both in his native Bulgaria, and in the United States.
As a child Asenov always dreamt of hitting the big screen, a dream which would soon become a reality. His passion for acting led him to Bulgaria’s National Academy of Theatre and Film Art where he was admitted after his first audition. After graduating from the academy he landed a starring role in the play “The Zoo Story” by Edward Albee. George’s performance was such a success that film and theatre offers poured in from every direction. This actor considers legends like Al Pacino, Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins as his source of inspiration. His work on the film ‘Keep Walking’ made the production a major hit, which in turn led to the film being voted number one at the National Academy of Theatre and Film Art.
George was extremely successful on the Bulgarian theatre circuit, however his desire to incorporate more filmwork into his repertoire eventually led him to Los Angeles where he found further success in the American theatre with leading roles in the productions of “Waiting for Lefty”, “Glengarry Glen Ross” and “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.” George cites Glengarry Glen Ross as his favorite role in the U.S. Playing a vulnerable elderly real estate salesman coming to the end of his professional career was a different kind of role for George who often plays very bold characters. In the play, George’s passive character is a scapegoat for his co-workers who repeatedly manipulate him for personal gain. George’s performance in the role was so moving that it brought audience members to tears.
Currently George is entertaining two feature film offers, in addition to a long list of stage offers in New York.
