Career[edit]

He was born in 1922 in Asia Minor and died on January 1993. His journey of life began on a ship that headed from Constantinople (now Istanbul) to Piraeus, between them two youngsters, Eftalia and Nikos. His family moved to Greece to escape the Turkish raids. During his transfer trip, his father got sick.

The family settled in Athens as the father's sickness did not retreat (the problem was mainly genetic as from the father's organism that shook an enzyme, it cleand the blood without knowing that revived the body). He died soon after at Sotiria hospital from galloping pneumonia. Nine days earlier Dimitris was born.

From his young age he loved sports even track and field. He was a good student which he was one of the 30 children that passed with scholarship from the Experimental School in Kolonaki which it was the greatest school in Athens on Skoufa(s) St(r).

During the enemy occupation he had work and power in resistance. In 1942 Khun ( or Coon) ran the Art Theatre with a company that used students that included himself. It had a debut in 1944 with his student Alekos Solomos O Teleftaios Asprokorakas

He participated in Mrs Katerina's company in 1945 in which he stayed until 1949 ; he later went on with Vasilis Logothetidis with a play by Alekos Sakellarios. For four years, he played with other companies and in 1954 returned again to act with Logothetidis for three years in films not only with as Logothetidis' character.

He met his wife Souli Sabah, a friend of Ilia Livykou, in Athens after the trip that Souli made in Egypt which she stayed (a year before she welcomed to the company) and a month later, recognized on September 15, 1955.

In film, he made his first movie The Girl From the Neighbourhood in 1954 with Smaroula Giouli, Giorgos Fountas, Orestis Makris, etc. He also played in international roles including America, America by Elia Kazan. He played in 80 movies.

In the summer of 1965, he played and directed his first theatrical play at the Minoa Theatre Mia Pentaras Niata (Μια Πεντάρας Νιάτα) by Pretenteris-Gialamas which was successful. That was his beginning.

His last role on stage was in 1980 in I erotiarides by Vasos Andrianos.

He worked with several stars including Elli Lambeti, Tzeni Karezi, Lambros Konstantaras, Costas Voutsas, etc.

On the small screen, from his great success are Ekeines kai Ego with Lambros Konstantaras. He still liked his friend and fellow actor and theatrical writer Kostas Pretenteris. Together appeared in O Thyroros which he played a Bulldozer.
