Klement Tinaj is an actor, director, producer and martial artist. His latest major films include “Fast & Furious 7”, “The Second Coming of Christ” and 4Got10. Tinaj initially worked in various roles in theatre impressing the audience with his remarkable characterization of the characters and his profoundly moving performance. While pursuing his acting career he trained in Tae Kwon Do and teaches students at different levels. His love for martial arts led him to create two action films, “The Attacker” and “Bad Fate”, which he wrote, directed, produced and starred in. Tinaj directed, produced, and fight choreographed the play “Some Kind of Love Story” written by Arthur Miller, which opened in the Dix Hills Performing Arts Center and at Producers Club Theatres in NY.
In 2014 Klement Tinaj finished filming “Fast & Furious 7”. Furious 7 is an American action film directed by James Wan and produced by Michael Fottrell, Vin Diesel, and Neal H. Moritz. Klement Tinaj is credited for Furious 7 as the “Race Wars Racer”. Tinaj had a chance to meet, greet, and work with Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Iggy Azalea. Tinaj said, “sharing the big screen with some of the biggest action stars such as Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Tony Jaa was a dream come true”. Furious 7 is now in theaters everywhere.
Klement Tinaj admits the film premier was both beautiful and emotional as he and the cast miss Paul Walker and are reminded what an amazing person and actor he was.
“The premiere for Furious 7 was on April 1st in the Chinese Theater in Hollywood Blvd. I attended the premiere with my best friend and my co-worked Roman Xing. I cried twice when I saw the film. Growing up watching Pawl Walker in all Fast & Furious films and knowing that this is going to be the last Furious for Paul was really sad. I feel very blessed to have been part of the Furious 7 family,” said Klement Tinaj, cast member of Fast and Furious 7.
“The scenes that I am in where shot in a racing track in California. It was the desert and it was super hot. What I like about the cast and crew is that no one ever complained because everyone had one goal about this film – to make Paul Walker proud!” added Tinaj.
Klement Tinaj is also excited about the upcoming film “The Second Coming of Christ”, where he plays the role of the “Captain”. It is a brilliant feature film coming out late this year, directed by Daniel Anghelcev, featuring Tom Sizemore, Jason London, Al Sapienza, Natalie Burn and Quinto Aaron. Tinaj said, “what made this film fun and more special is that I got to work with both of my friends Roman Xing and Leandro Simozza”.
Klement Tinaj just finished filming “4Got10” directed by Timothy Woodward Jr, featuring Hollywood action stars Dolph Lundren and Danny Trejo. Tinaj plays the role of the “Detective”. On February 23, 2015 Status Media & Entertainment announced that Dolph Lundgren, Vivica Fox and Danny Trejo joined Michael Paré and Johnny Messner in their latest action/thriller “4GOT10”.
“Director Timothy Woodward Jr.’s vision created a modern, semi-western style which he’s described as “Django Unchained” meets “Memento”. In addition to his talent, Timothy is known for giving his actors the freedom to improvise, and encourages their creative input to help the scenes flow organically.” (www.statusmedia-ent.com). This feature film is expected to be released in 2015.
The multi-talented Klement Tinaj has also been busy writing, acting and producing his own films aside from playing supporting roles in major films. Klement Tinaj acted, produced and co-wrote “Helping Hand” with George McGrath who was nominated for an Emmy Award “Pee-wee’s Playhouse in 1986”.
Tinaj wrote, acted and produced both “Helping Hand” and “Last Chance”. Both films will premiere in New York City on April 12, 2015 at 6:00 pm in Producer Club Theater (www.klementtinaj.com).
“Since I received my MFA I haven’t been back to New York so I am super excited for the April 12 screening. Not just because of my film premieres but also to see my family and friends. I want to extend my thanks and appreciation to my agent Chris and my management for all their hard work and support,” stated Klement Tinaj.
Tinaj received his B.F.A in Theatre Arts in December 2012 and his MFA in Acting for Film in January 2015. Tinaj dreams of making it big as an action hero. As an actor he has the elements that make an action star. He is also great with martial arts choreography and it is natural for him to write, act and direct.
