                     Do not run after fame… IT’S YOU!

                             – Cosmin P. Zaharia –

"Working with Cosmin was a really good experience. Even from our first meeting he was really professional and knew exactly what he wanted. On the set, he was extremely focused in the work and respectful to the colleagues, paying attention to every detail. Really happy with this collaboration."

- Eleni Papadogeorgou

"When I first heard about Cosmin’s project I was really in awe of how ambitious he was and determined to get what he wanted to make this film a masterpiece. His attitude towards his work made me want to be involved! The scene I was in playing Virna opposite of Rodrig Andrisan was a very challenging and hard scene to play. We rehearsed the scene at least 5 different times and Cosmin knew what he was looking for. At times it was hard for me to reach Cosmin’s goal but he encouraged me and pushed me in the right direction so much so that the end product seemed to have had the quality it needed. You’ll know for sure when you work with Cosmin you will always get 100% commitment and hard-work which eventually will turn into fantastic results."

- Mayalani Moes

"Working with Cosmin on The Music Island was a great learning experience for me as Cosmin's passion and dedication in getting across utmost authenticity really rubbed off on me. The production itself featured such a lovely international bunch of people in both cast and crew, and I have made friends for life through being a part of this project. My personal highlight would be shooting Tommy's farewell scene which gives such an awesome insight into London's underground world of street racers."

- Faraz M. Khan

"I really respect the drive and determination Cosmin Zaharia has put into this, along with the sacrifices and sleepless weeks required to complete a project of this magnitude. I didn’t understand exactly what the purpose of the film was in the beginning, but after working with his team and seeing the trailer, I get it now. Gritty, real freedom."

- Marco George

"Summer 2019 I was fortunate to have worked on this project as assistant director for the London shoot and in this movie as the savoury character Marco, all of which was a treat and a half. Much hard work and dedication went into this project by all involved, it's a totally awesome plot and in all a brilliant piece of work. Thank you Cosmin, you're a diamond!" - Monjinder Sangha

- Monjinder Sangha

"Cosmin is a very talented and demanding director. Always prepared, always focused, always dedicated. He search for the best qualities in actors and he digs deeply. Average is not good for him. You must give your 100%. Working with him was an amazing adventure and a great possibility to grow. I wish every director was as inspiring to his actors as he is to me. Together, we created magic. And magic is when there is no real person on the set, only characters. Thank you Cosmin Zaharia for this opportunity and I hope that we will create magic again."

- Natasza Leszniak

"Working with Cosmin, his style is that of great intimacy, he is there along side the characters, feeling what they feel, seeing through their eyes and listening with their ears, it's like he plugs into each and every character, is he a perfectionist? I'm afraid he is, it's a great thing, as an actor I found he was with me the whole time, being attentive and responsive to my characters every move. Pressure, concatenated pressure makes a diamonds, I'm pretty certain this is his ideology when on set looking to get the most out of his characters and the scene."

- Monjinder Sangha

"Working with Cosmin as a director and actor, with whom I shared my scene as Teresa, has been such a deep process of constantly moving emotions, becoming aware of the character, intentions, relationships and also made me ask loads of questions about the career in both sides of the camera. I enjoyed so much playing Teresa in both languages, English and Spanish."

About me

I just finished my first feature film, “The Music Island”. I am Cosmin Zaharia, writer, producer, director and the leading actor of this movie. “The Music Island” was filmed in four countries – Spain, UK, Romania and Bulgaria – and I’m now ready to participate with it at some of the most prominent film festivals around the world.

In June 2010, I graduated the Faculty of Theatre and Film in Bucharest, with a major in Acting. As a student, I played various roles in various plays with Masca Theatre company in Bucharest, both in the capital and around the country. At graduation, I decided to further develop myself as an actor and enrolled for a Master’s program at East 15 Acting School of London. This gave me the opportunity to perform in few theater productions in London, including one in the famous Shakespeare’s Globe.

Additional Info

The next step in my career development was Bernard Hiller’s Acting & Success Studio, the premier choice for Acting and Business Success in Los Angeles. Following shortly was my attendance to the British Action Academy, founded by Andreas Petrides, one of the UK’s leading JISC Registered Action Directors, Stunt Co-ordinators, Fight Arrangers and Stunt Performers.

Stand-up comedy was another field I used to explore as an actor, while living in London. In order to widen my acting opportunities, I enrolled to attend Logan Murray’s Comedy Course, Stand Up & Deliver, that opened me new acting opportunities in locations like The Comedy Store, the premier stand-up comedy venue in London.

Soon after that, I auditioned for a string of roles in international films and broke into the world of cinema. Acting in movies became instantly the hot spot where I wanted to be and advance my acting career. Soon enough I returned home from the set imagining myself behind the camera and directing my own movies. I 2017 I directed my first short movie, followed by another short, a year later. They both prepared me to launch myself into the final quest: my first feature-length movie. “The Music Island”, my precious baby would get born in the early days of summer 2020, turning me into the proud director I am today.
