Vasilis Tsivilikas (Thessaloniki, January 17, 1942 – Athens, February 29, 2012) was a Greek comedy actor with significant appearances in the Greek film industry, television and especially theater.

Biography[edit]

He was born in January 17, 1942 in Thessaloniki, originated from Domnista and Megalo Chorio Evrytanias. He was the first child of his family that later additionally had two daughters. His sister Eleni Tsivilika is an archaeologist of National Archaeological Museum of Athens, with excavations in Crete and Cyclades. His father was a shopkeeper, provided for his family a comfortable life and loved theater.

He studied in the American College of Thessaloniki "Anatolia". His professors there urged him to engage with acting, initially by participating in school's theatrical team. After completing his undergraduate courses he was accepted in the School of English Language and Literature, which dropped out to move in Athens and to eventually move forward professionally with acting.

After a failed attempt to be accepted in Theatro Technis, he eventually studied acting in the acting school of Pelos Katselis.

His first theatrical performance was in 1965 at Nea Ionia. Two years later Karolos Koun invited him to Theatro Technis. In early 1970s he got involved with satire plays and in the mid-1970s with prose.

70s was the decade he first appeared in cinema. The first movie he appeared was I theia mou, i hipissa by Alekos Sakellarios.

On February 29, 2012 at the age of 70, he had a heart complication and died during his transfer to Sismanogleio General Hospital.

He was married to lawyer Aliki Tsivilika and father of one son and one daughter.[1]

He was performing in theater until his last day, at the play "I zoi podilato".[2]
