Ada Condeescu, Romania
Jury's comment: In LOVERBOY Ada Condeescu gives an impressive performance: sensual, loving and convincing. The camera loves her without falling into vulgarity or voyeurism.
A graduate in Acting at Bucharest's National University of Theatre and Film, Ada made her film acting debut in Florin Serban's award-winning IF I WANT TO WHISTLE, I WHISTLE which premiered at the 2010 Berlinale. She followed this with another two lead roles: in Catalin Mitulescu's second film LOVERBOY, which was shown in Cannes' Un Certain Regard in 2011, and Bogdan Mustata's feature debut WOLF.
