Adipati Koesmadji or better known as Adipati Dolken (born in Tangerang, Banten, Indonesia on 19 August 1991) is an Indonesian actor and model of mixed German and Javanese descent.


Adipati gained prominence when he appeared in a supporting role on the soap opera Kepompong [id] (Indonesian: Cocoon), which aired on SCTV from 2008 to 2009. He was later cast in Putih Abu-Abu dan Sepatu Kets (Indonesian: White-Grey and Athletic Shoes), his first collaboration with the film's director Nayato Fio Nuala [id], who later directed him in 18+ [id] (2010) and its sequel, 18++ Forever Love [id] (2012).

In 2012, he starred along with Maudy Ayunda and Surya Saputra in Malaikat Tanpa Sayap (Indonesian: An Angel with No Wings). Later, he co-starred with Maudy Ayunda once again, alongside Reza Rahadian, in Perahu Kertas [id] (Indonesian: Paper Boats), which was adapted from the novel of the same name [id] by its author Dewi "Dee" Lestari. It was released in August. In December the same year, its sequel [id] was released, with Adipati reprising his role.

In 2013, he appeared in the historical film The Clerics (Sang Kiai), where his performance garnered him the Citra Award for Best Supporting Actor at the 2013 Indonesian Film Festival. At the age of 22, he was one of the youngest award recipients at the festival. In the same year, he also appeared as Bimbim in Slank Nggak Ada Matinya [id] (Indonesian: Slank Never Dies), the biographical film about the band Slank.

In 2014, he appeared in three comedy films; Marmut Merah Jambu [id] (Indonesian: The Pink Guinea Pig), Aku, Kau, & KUA [id] (Indonesian: You, Me & The Office of Religion Affairs) and Kukejar Cinta ke Negeri Cina [id] (Indonesian: I Pursue My Love to China). In 2015, he starred in Jenderal Soedirman [id] as the titular character, General Sudirman, and 3 Dara [id] (Indonesian: 3 Maidens) alongside Tora Sudiro and Tanta Ginting [id]. In 2016, he made a cameo appearance in Koala Kumal [id], and starred in Catatan Dodol Calon Dokter [id].

In 2017, he starred in two drama films; At Stake (Indonesian: Sacrifice) and Posesif (Indonesian: Possessive), the latter landed him a nomination for the Citra Award for Best Leading Actor at the 2017 Indonesian Film Festival.

In 2018, he starred alongside his girlfriend Vanesha Prescilla in the semi-biographical romantic comedy film #TemanTapiMenikah (Indonesian: #FriendsButMarried), based on the book of the same name about the real-life love story between Ditto Percussion [id] and Ayudia Bing Slamet [id]. He also appeared in The Man from the Sea [jp], a Japanese-Indonesian-French co-production directed by Koji Fukada.
