Bašić was born on 14 Feb­ru­ary 1930 in Zagreb, at the time of King­dom of Yugoslavia. He was born to a Jew­ish moth­er Elly (née Lerch) Bašić. Bašić was raised by his moth­er and steph­fa­ther Mladen Bašić. He first appeared on screen in 1954 clas­sic film Kon­cert. Through the decades, he played many dif­fer­ent roles in many dif­fer­ent films, often in inter­na­tion­al co-pro­duc­tions. He nev­er became a star, but remained one of the most recog­nis­able and depend­able char­ac­ter actors. His spe­cial­ty were the roles of suave aris­to­crat­ic vil­lains, espe­cial­ly in his­toric films deal­ing with World War II, but his best remem­bered role is Mr. Fulir in 1970 cult musi­cal com­e­dy Tko pje­va zlo ne mis­li.

In the 1990s, Bašić was an enthu­si­as­tic sup­port­er of the Croa­t­ian Social Lib­er­al Par­ty. Dur­ing 1992 par­lia­men­tary elec­tions he appeared as that party’s can­di­date in one of Zagreb con­stituen­cies. He lost that race to Ned­jeljko Mihanović of HDZ in con­tro­ver­sial cir­cum­stances. A few months lat­er, on elec­tions for upper House of Croa­t­ian Par­lia­ment, he won the seat rep­re­sent­ing City of Zagreb.[cita­tion need­ed]

In 1995, Pres­i­dent Tuđ­man award­ed him with the Order of Dan­i­ca Hrvats­ka.

Bašić also act­ed as a UNESCO Artist for Peace.[4]

Bašić, sev­er­al years ear­li­er from his death, suf­fered from a femur frac­ture and as a result it restrained his move­ment.[5] Bašić died on 7 April 2017 in Zagreb, Croa­t­ia.[6][7]
