Barnabas Reti has become famous in Hungary for his ongoing lead role in Baratok kozt, the country's number 1 TV-series as Erik, a romantic male-lead and bad-boy. He was born in 1982, in Szeged, Hungary. As a very impressive talent in drawing and painting, everybody thought he was going to be a painter or a graphic artist. Although he used to do illustrations for local newspapers as a teenager, his real passion for acting and movies led him to try drama school after the age of 18. He went to Budapest to learn acting and started to work in several theaters. He was first chosen by Peter Greenaway to play a young fascist soldier in his actual film shot on location in Hungary. Another minor on-screen role followed in Being Julia by Academy Award-winner Hungarian director Istvan Szabo where Barnabas played Bruce Greenwood's gay lover. After 3 years of intensive stage training in Budapest, he traveled to the United States to attend an acting for film course at the New York Film Academy. Returning back to Europe he started his own theatre company, Noir Színház, with young artists and made his critically acclaimed debut as a director with Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie where he also played the leading role as Tom, the poet. The show toured in Romania and Hungary with great reviews. Then he was invited to Baratok kozt, the most popular TV-show in Hungary for a 3 year-contract witch made him famous and popular countrywide. As a well-known TV-star he carried on acting on stage in dramas, comedies and musicals and has been continuously working with his theater group becoming a fresh new point of the underground theatre scene of Budapest. Their production of Stephen King's Misery with him as the male lead has became such a hit success that it went from a small studio to Karinthy Theatre, one of the most popular stages of Budapest. He has played various characters on stage in plays of different genres from drama to comedy. The title role of Albert Camus' classic 'Caligula' was his last Hungarian performance before he moved to London to seek for more international opportunities. He played infamous murderer Krytian Bala in Sky Vision's upcoming TV crime-docu series 'Killers - Behind the Myth', worked with Tom Cruise in 'Mission Impossible -Rogue Nation and appeared in American networks series. He's currently appearing on 'Emerald City' by NBC Universal and filming a British feature 'Three Dots and a Dash' playing lead villain, Vogler Kassir.
