Bojana Novakovic is a rather striking woman that has done quite a bit in her career thus far and seems to be one of the more determined individuals in the film and theater industries. She’s managed to climb the mountain in some way when it comes to acting and becoming her own boss and honestly looking at her bio it’s pretty impressive to read. A lot of people want to do something with their lives but either start making compromises that lead them down uncertain paths or just give up because it gets too hard. Bojana doesn’t seem to be that kind of person.
It takes an iron will to keep going sometimes and she seems to have it.
5. She works as a Serbian translator for film and theater.
Believe it or not this is an important role for those that take it up since translating films and TV shows to something that can be understood in other languages does manage to increase the popularity of the production. Subtitles are great and all but if you can truly follow the story without having to look down every few seconds to see what the characters are saying it makes for a better viewing experience.
4. She graduated with a degree in Performing Arts.
Bojana attended the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Australia and graduated in 2002 with her BA. At that point it seems like she knew what she wanted to do and wasn’t going to branch off just yet from her goal. It takes a lot of patience and determination to keep going forward with something even if the road gets a little rocky and the way keeps getting harder at times.
3. She originally wanted to be a social worker or a doctor.
Despite the noble work that each profession is responsible for something happened in Bojana’s life that made her decide that acting was the right course for her rather than anything that might allow her to serve her fellow human beings. There’s absolutely no shame in turning away from such professions if they don’t seem right as with each profession it’s up to the individual to determine if they’re the right fit.
2. She runs her own independent theater company.
This is definitely a product of her time spent in theater and as an actor since many people either make the transition after seeing what it’s like in front of the camera or audience or simply go into directing without the benefit of having spent any time as an actor. Honestly it seems like doing one or the other first would be preferable but then again some people can direct but not act, while some people can act but not direct. Running a theater company is a little different though, as it seems to fall somewhere in between those two.
1. She moved to Australia at the age of 7.
She’s originally from Belgrade, Serbia, Yugoslavia. Her family moved when she was still a young girl to Australia where as she grew she came to prominence in her chosen field.
She’s done quite well for herself obviously.
