Gojko Mitić (Гojкo Митић) (born June 13, 1940 in Leskovac, Morava Banovina, Kingdom of Yugoslavia) is a famous Serbian director, actor, stuntman, and author. He lives in Berlin.

He is best known for a series of successful Red Westerns from the GDR DEFA Studios, featuring Native Americans as the heroes, rather than white settlers as in John Ford's Westerns. Beginning with The Sons of the Great Mother Bear (1966), Mitić starred in 12 films of this type between 1966 and 1984. In an attempt to move away from his fame based on these Westerns, Mitić in his later career increasingly sought to appear in other genres, on film, on television and on stage. Among other roles he played Spartacus on stage and presented several TV shows. He also played the Winnetou in several seasons at the "Karl-May-Festspiele" until 2006 in Bad Segeberg near Hamburg, Germany. In one episode he played a role at the German television program Schloss Einstein.
