Actor and musician, Tudor Chirilă started his career in music as a founding member and vocalist for one of Romania’s most beloved rock bands – Vama Veche. Along with his band mates he produced the first Romanian rock opera since 1989, ”Am să mă-ntorc bărbat”. Together with Gelu Ionescu he composed the music for ”Chirița of Bârzoieni”, a musical in which he was also the leading performer, adapted and directed by Iarina Demian.
He later continued his musical career as a leader and vocalist of the rock band ”VAMA”, along with whom he released two albums so far: ”Vama” and ”2012”. Over more than 20 years of musical activity he wrote or co-wrote more than 90 songs and he performed in front of millions of people.
He has performed in 14 theatre plays directed by some of the most famous and valuable Romanian directors. In 2004 he won the UNITER award for his part as Malvolio in ”The Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare, directed by Gelu Colceag.

He starred in several movies among which ”Love Sick” directed by Tudor Giurgiu, ”Weekend Millionaires” directed by Cătălin Saizescu and ”Nordrand” (Austrian-German co-production directed by Barbara Albert).
