“Teodor Corban has passed away. The actor. The one everyone knows from ‘Aferim’, where he played the main role, the captious Costandin. A film in which he shone in all his interpretive splendor. A production awarded with the Golden Bear in Berlin and with a bunch of Gopo Awards, one of them even for Teo’s performance, as those close to him addressed him. (…) Smooth road to the stars, Teodor Corban! We already miss you,” wrote the theater expert.
