Eros Vlahos with a fan, June 2013
13 January 1995 |
Eros Vlahos (born 13 January 1995) is an English-Greek actor and comedian, probably best known for his roles as Cyril Gray in Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, Jake Farley in Summer in Transylvania, and Lommy Greenhands in Game of Thrones. He also appeared in a recurring role on the television series Da Vinci's Demons, as Nico Machiavelli.
Family background and personal life
Eros Vlahos was born in London on 13 January 1995. His parents are Terry Davy (mother) and Spiros Vlahos (father), and he has a younger brother (approx. 7 years age difference), Tron Vlahos. He is of British (maternal) and Greek (paternal) ancestry.
Vlahos' parents also work in commercial partnership with one another; his mother as a fashion designer and his father as business manager. They own and operate the original Cyberdog shop in Camden Market; a futurist and rave-scene fashion, accessory, and toy retailer which they founded together in 1994. Their pet chihuahua, "Chichi the Cyberdog", inspired the name of the store and was featured as part of its brand-image. The family still keeps a chihuahua as a pet in the present-day (as of 2013).
Eros attended day-school (as opposed to boarding school) in London. He draws, and assembles Lego sets as hobbies. He is a sports fan, particularly of football, and likes going out to movies and live-theatre shows.
In an interview on GreekReporter about his new role on Da Vinci's Demons and his life, Eros said he likes to visit his friends and family at Filiates, his father’s home village in Greece.
