Predrag "Miki" Manojlović (Serbian Cyrillic: Предраг "Мики" Манојловић, born 5 April 1950, Belgrade, Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia) is a Serbian actor, famous for his starring roles in some of the most important films of former Yugoslav cinema. Since the early 1990s, he successfully branched out into movies made outside the Balkans; he is currently active in productions all over Europe.

Predrag Manojlović grew up in a family of stage actors – father Ivan Manojlović and mother Zorka Doknić. After his screen debut in 1970, young Predrag continued to appear in numerous films and TV dramas made in SFR Yugoslavia, some of which, like the 1975 TV series Grlom u jagode where he memorably played Miki Rubiroza, achieved cult status.

He is arguably best known for the role of the father in Emir Kusturica's 1985 film When Father Was Away on Business and as a tragic opportunist in 1995's Underground (also by Kusturica). He is known for his versatility which helped him make a strong impression both in starring and character roles, as well as dramas and comedies, with his small role in the 1992 hit comedy Mi nismo anđeli being an example of the latter. He played the role of Agostino Tassi in the 1997 film Artemisia and that of Miki in Irina Palm.

During the NATO bombardments in 1999, Miki said: "Westerners must understand that no one can constrain anybody, that the Balkans need to live their own life with their own multiplicity of cultures, religions, languages. They must understand that they should not worsen the situation with their own frustrations and their ideas which do not function, that the more bombs fall in Yugoslavia, the less safety will there be in Europe."

Personal life

Manojlović is married to actress Tamara Vučković with whom he has a son Ivan. He has a daughter Čarna Manojlović from a previous marriage.
