Guests

Stefan Kapicic

 

After having to postpone last year to finish Deadpool 2 reshoots Stefan Kapicic is very eager to make it to Newfoundland this year to make it up to you.

Stefan Kapicic is a German-born Serbian actor best known for his iconic role as Colossus, in the record breaking Marvel/Fox feature film, Deadpool, and reprised the role for Deadpool 2.

Studying at the Academy of Dramatic Arts, one of the most respected drama schools in Europe, Kapicic has since played more than 70 roles in theatre, film and television. After making his feature film debut in 2003, his breakout role was awarded Best Debutant at the Nish Film Festival. With such a successful debut, Kapicic went on to star in films such as The Cordon, Street Walker, Free Fall, and Tears for Sale.

Standing at an astounding 6’4” and having the ability to speak nine different languages, Kapicic has become an ideal candidate for the portrayal of certain characters. In 2016, Kapicic appeared in the record-breaking feature film Deadpool, as the physically imposing Colossus. Directed by Tim Miller, he starred alongside Ryan Reynolds American antihero, bringing a much dryer sense of humor often neglected by the X-Men franchise.

Stefan Kapicic is also appearing in critically-acclaimed Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul in 2018.
