Petros Fyssoun - Greek awarded actor, one of the best theatre actors of Greece starred in classic greek movies, took part in Cannes,Moscow and Leningrad Film Festivals in the '60s.  My first 'idol' in my teens!  His daughter happened to join my school when I was high school and she was just primary school, but he used to come and collect her every day at end of schooltime and my classmates (we were all girls) noticed that and used to 'hide' to watch him...He seemed to be a very good dad.

Maria Farantouri - To Mystiko Bir sırrım var, kendime bile söyleyemeyeceğim Yıllarca saklayacağım onu, bir tılsım gibi, bana seni hatırlatan Bir sırrım var, kimseye söyleyemeyeceğim Bir sırrım var, küçük bir mücevher, ruhumun zincirinde asılı... Nasıl bir sır ki bu, “seni seviyorum”a sığmayan? Nedir bu sır, hayatını değiştiren? Bir sırrım var, narin bir beyaz çiçek, senin adına konuşan Gelmiyorsun diye buraya, kapatmış kendini, konuşmuyor kimseyle Bir sırrım var, küçük ve parlak bir ay, seni…

Dimitris Horn(1921-1998)was one of the leading lights of the New Wave.He led a charmed existence.Yet,as the years rolled on,his Olympian talent looks made him a star.Together,with Eli Lambeti helped break many taboos of Greek society,both on film and in real life.Theatre was his great love."What they say about the actor having to get under the skin of the part is wrong;if that was the case we would all be performing the same way.It is the part which gets under the actor's skin," he said.
