Australian actress Boyana Novakovic is now part of the star cast of Hollywood, and once a little girl with her parents fled from the war in Yugoslavia, where she was born, to the Australian continent. Who knows what her fate would have been if her childhood had been different?
Bojana was born in Belgrade in 1981. Earlier, the future actress spent her childhood in this city, and in 1988, the parents moved their two daughters to Sydney. The girls went to school there, and Bojana often recalled the horrors of life in Belgrade. Therefore, since childhood, she dreamed of becoming a doctor in order to help people.
As a teenager, she was completely captured by her love of literature, and she realized that she wanted to become a stage actress. Therefore, after school, Boyana became a student at the National Institute of Dramatic Art. And already as a student, she began to appear in the series of Australian directors, and by the time of her education there were many such works in her portfolio.
One of the roles played by Novakovic during this period was the role of Tianna in the film Masks of the Monkey (2000). And only four years later came another major role in the film "Down on the Spot". After that, there were filming in films where Bojana was on the same set with such famous Australian actors as Colin Friels, Vince Colosimo and others.
A little later, Hollywood actors became her filming partners: Justin Long and Alison Lohman in the horror film Drag Me to Hell, as well as Mel Gibson in the film Retribution and Keanu Reeves in the film Three in New York. These films did not become mega-popular, but the experience of working with such luminaries of the acting profession will remain with Boyana forever.
And now this story continues: filming, famous partners, great films that viewers love. And at the same time fame and demand in the profession comes. For example, 2011 brought Novakovich two roles at once - in "The Burning Man" and in the TV series "Shameless", which has been extended for which season due to popularity with viewers.
The best in the portfolio of the actress are considered the film "Tonya Against All" (2017) and the series "Shameless" and "Westworld", which are still being filmed.
The film "Tonya Against All" about the difficult fate of an American figure skater was nominated for many prestigious awards, as a result received an Oscar for a supporting role and a Golden Globe in the same nomination.
In addition to acting, Boyana tried her hand at a different incarnation: she wrote the script and directed the film "The Forbidden Aunt", on which she worked as a director.
Boyana Novakovich's personal life is an absolutely closed topic, but after almost every film she is suspected of having romances with partners. Perhaps professionalism is to blame? After all, the audience thinks that if there is "chemistry" between the actors in the frame, then it is in life.
From the personal hobbies of the actress, it is known about riding a motorcycle - or rather, about racing on a steel horse. She is also engaged in Muay Thai, she has a personal trainer.
Boyana also maintains two Instagram accounts - her own and her dog's. You can't deny her humor.
