Young actor Luka Raco, has won the sympathies of a wide auditorium, particularly teenagers, in a short while. He handles his role model position very conscientiously and refuses to allow the popularity to separate him the values he believes in.
After several TV roles and the book “Portrait painted with words” what will you work on the next season?
Soon I will start recording the new season of the Sinđelići series. So the next period will be dedicated to shooting.
“ Portrait painted with words”, among other things, speaks of the life after the cameras and spotlights go out. Is it possible to preserve one’s privacy if one’s popularity constantly grows?
At the end of the day, I think that all people who are engaged in public busines choose by themselves how much of their privite life will be made available for the media. Of course, working as a public person takes away one’s privacy as a rule, in the sense that people recognize you on the street, which simply brings some things to the public through the media, but at the end of the day we can still preserve privacy if we want, and we can take care of ourselves.
What are the challenges that the young actor faces in order to advance in his or her career and improve his or her positions?
There are many challenges, we constantly need to improve our qualities and talents and work to improve them, but I think that the biggest challenges in any business are exactly interpersonal relationships, because having a good team while doing the work brings more than half of such work to an end.
Is there a role that you wish for? What national directors you would like to work with??
First of all, I hope that there will be more, and that they will be as diverse as possible. Regarding the directors, I would also like to have the opportunity to cooperate with as many of them as possible, I would not single out anyone.
The “Sindjelići” series has brought you great popularity. How much has this project changed things in your career and influenced the creation of a huge base of fans?
The popularity changes all kinds of things in our life, but the most important thing is that it does not go into some egocentrism, which often happens when one deals with public business, on the contrary, we should strive to remain on the ground and try to be as best as we can when doing our job, so that we justify our popularity. It affects the job, of course, but again, in the end, the popularity is not the only thing that matters; the quality we can show through our work matters more.
Is good and attractive look important for an actor? Does it increase one’s possibilities in the job?
I think that the look is not at all crucial for any job, but the reality is that the physical appearance today affects various business environments, I can freely say, as some kind of additional bonus, but at the end of the day, however, the important is that we know what we now and can do what we do.
What is true summer hedonism for you? Do you prepare for travels in the next two months?
Sea, beach, loved ones, coffee, sun – quite enough to charge batteries for all new business and private ventures. I will go to Zlatibor to begin with, and then I plan on a further journey, to take advantage of the summer season.
A number of young people will no doubt read the “Portrait painted with words”. Have you left them some message or shifted their focus to some specific values?
I will quote: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve” – W. Clement Stone.
