This coin celebrates the famous Ukrainian actor and Hero of Ukraine, Bohdan Stupka. Bohdan Stupka was able to portray any image or character: he performed over 150 film and theatrical roles. He made his film debut in Yurii Illienko`s film `The White Bird Marked with Black` (1971) as Orest Dzvonar. Stupka portrayed many historical characters, including hetmans Ivan Briukhovetsky, Ivan Mazepa, and Bohdan Khmelnytsky, as well as Genghis Khan, Boris Godunov, Ostap Vyshnia, and many others. In 1993, Stupka was awarded the Shevchenko National Prize (the highest Ukrainian state prize for works of culture and arts) for his major role in the play `Tevye-Tevel` (based on Grigori Gorin`s play `The Memorial Prayer,` which itself is loosely based on a work by Sholem Aleichem).
