Quarantine days

I believe time is a gift. And yes, this pandemic is ugly and horrifying, but if you are well and asked to simply stay at home to stay safe, how can you possibly complain, considering everything that’s going on around the world?

“Caterina Cornaro” at Must Fashion 19

Caterina Cornaro came into my life 4 years ago and if you’ve been following this blog you’ll know what an insanely rewarding journey it has been. Recently director Andreas Araouzos was asked to direct the opening of the Must Fashion 2019 awards, and as the evening was dedicated to the last queen of Cyprus, Anthie Zachariadou wrote a shorter version of her life -this time in Greek.

Auditions *BLOG*

I got a message a while back from a fellow actor, asking me how I prepare and deal with auditions. Having been on an audition spree lately, I thought it would be an interesting subject to post about.

Driving the new BMW X2 for “Time Out” Magazine

You wouldn’t call me the traditional car-lover. I’m more like the two ends of a spectrum; I respect classic older cars and yet new designs fascinate me.

So when Time Out Magazine invited me to drive the new BMW X2 and write an article about it, I kinda couldn’t resist.

Women’s Day

We do not need to celebrate with flowers and chocolate and cosmetics today. We shouldn’t even thank them for it. We can do that any day and on our own. Today actually we do not need to celebrate at all; we need remember. Our worth. Our value. Our dignity.

Little Blessings

I wanted to share with you a little tradition I’ve created for myself.

Every New Years’ Day, I open a little box in which I keep little colorful post-it notes from the past year.

Why I Now Always Make My Bed

I have tremendous discipline when it comes to my work; maybe that’s why I felt it’s okay to overlook smaller things. Like taking 2 minutes in the morning to make my bed.

Until I came across Admiral McRaven’s speech.

“A Few Good Men” On Tour

It isn’t frequent in this profession that you get to work on a project you are really passionate about and everyone gets along with everyone. Especially when it consists of a big cast.

That’s why I feel undeniably lucky and blessed to portray Joanne Galloway in this production of “A Few Good Men” by Aaron Sorkin. The show premiered last fall and we are so happy and excited to go on a mini tour this September!

Humans Of New York

I’ve been following this amazing page for some time and I’m always drawn to the beauty of these incredible stories of everyday people.

I’ve read that Humans of New York is soon to become a documentary-series and the trailer gave me goosebumps!

Life’s Funny That Way

So just before blowing out my candles this year, I couldn’t help but think of that line I said every night in the show “Grande Midlife Mocha Latte”:

“Life’s funny that way. Taking you where you don’t want to go, only to give you exactly what you need. I didn’t see it then, but I do now. And I’m not taking any of it for granted. None on it.”

And trust me, I felt it to the bone.
