Themistocles Popa (June 27, 1921 – November 26, 2013) was a Romanian composer, musician, and film actor.


Temistocle Popa studied flute, harp, and saxophone at the National University of Music Bucharest. He then worked with musicians such as Sergiu Malagamba and Ion Dacian, and was close friends with the popular Romanian singer Maria Tănase. Beginning in the early 1960s, he wrote music for many Romanian films.

He was married to actress Cornelia Teodosiu, and resided with her in Bucharest. After the Romanian Revolution of 1989 Popa lost almost his entire fortune due to nationalization of assets.

In 2004 he received the Romanian National Order Legal Service, attaining the rank of Knight.
