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).

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.

That was his beginning.
