In 1990 she became a full member of UNITER, joining the institution’s senate nine years later.

Years later, in 2005, Ilinca Tomoroveanu was appointed deputy artistic director of the Ion Luca Caragiale National Theatre. However, she continued to perform on stage.

She was married to Traian Stănescu, and it is said that there was love at first sight between the two.

Beyond her artistic life, Ilinca Tomoroveanu fought for the fortune of her uncle, Octavian Goga.

In his will, Octavian Goga would have left his entire fortune to Veturia, his wife. But in 1966, she donated everything to the Romanian state.

In 2015, her grandchildren succeeded in annulling the will and obtained the retrocession of the “Octavian Goga” Museum Complex in Ciucea, Cluj county, which opened the way for other claimants, including Ilinca Tomoroveanu.

At stake was a 24-hectare estate, but also an impressive mansion that housed priceless collections, including paintings by Camil ressu, Ștefan Luchian, Nicolae Grigorescu and Nicolae Tonitza.

Unfortunately, after all, the splinter does not jump far from Octavian Goga’s torso, so the actress preferred to spend the last years of her life trying to obtain a fortune which, to be honest, was no longer of any use to her.

On May 2, 2019, the actress passed away in Bucharest.
