In Romania, he became a familiar face after starring in the 2004-2005 soap-opera "Numai iubirea", produced by MediaPro Pictures, playing the troubled, yet good-hearted brother of main star Alexandru Papadopol. The show brought a high-profile romance with co-star Adela Popescu. MediaPro Pictures capitalised on their real-life relationship by producing two one-season soap-operas, Lacrimi de iubire and Iubire ca în filme, in 2005-2006 and 2006-2007, respectively, where the two also share their love on-screen. This fueled rumours that their relationship is actually a publicity stunt. As of March 21, 2007, they are no longer a couple.
He also had minor parts in the movies "Modigliani and "Gunpowder, Treason & Plot, both filmed on location in Romania.
