Stanislav Ianevski is a Bulgarian actor that is perhaps best known for playing Viktor Krum in the 2005 film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Ianevski was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and lived in England for five years and Israel. While attending Mill Hill School in the United Kingdom, Ianevski had no particular acting aspirations and was not a drama student. He had only auditioned for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire after being spotted by Fiona Weir, a casting director who prompted him to attend an acting workshop, which resulted in his casting as Viktor Krum, a Bulgarian character in the Harry Potter series. He was selected from 650 others, most of whom had auditioned in Sofia, Bulgaria.
He also starred in Hostel: Part II, the sequel to Eli Roth's film Hostel. He reprised his role as Viktor Krum in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. However, his sequences were cut from the final film.
