Trivia (4)

Father of Hedon and Uliks Fehmiu.
Studied at the Belgrade Film Academy from 1956 to 1960 with Prof. Mata Milosevic.
A major star in Yugoslavia and several parts of Europe, Fehmiu won film awards and definite heartthrob status in his native land before venturing out internationally. His American debut in a starring role with a huge, star-studded, international cast backing him up was poorly acted and the epic film a complete misfire. The Adventurers (1970) ruined any chances for Fehmiu to achieve similar stardom in Hollywood.
Lives with his wife, brothers and sisters between Belgrade, Prizren and Pristina. Released an autobiographical book. [May 2001]
