BUCHAREST, Romania - Serban Cantacuzino, a Romanian prince and actor who starred in films, musicals, and children’s serials, has died at 70.

Mr. Cantacuzino died Monday in Paris, where he had lived since 1990. No cause was given.

Mr. Cantacuzino was the descendent of Serban Cantacuzino, a 17th-century prince who battled with the Turks, introduced Romanians to corn, and published the Cantacuzino Bible.

The family legacy and his aristocratic air added to his popularity.

Mr. Cantacuzino made his debut at age 11 in Mark Twain’s “The Prince and the Pauper.’’ He acted in a dozen films, musicals, and television series in Romania.
