  • As a young girl, what did you aspire to be when you grew up?

I have always wanted to be an actress. Ever since I was little, I was enchanted by films and the thought of bringing characters to life.

  • Of all your roles, which are you MOST proudest of?

I am very grateful and proud of every part I ever got. They are personal victories, pieces to the puzzle of my life. I love and cherish them forever.

  • What are your thoughts on the #metoo movement?

I feel it should have happened much earlier. Nobody should use their power against any human being, and nobody should be afraid to stand up for themselves - women and men.

  • What is your favourite restaurant and holiday destination in Greece?

One of my top favourite restaurants is Feedέλ Urban gastronomy. It's Greek cuisine but with a twist, and in the centre of Athens. I adore the Greek islands and I'm in love with Hydra, Kefalonia and Ithaca.

  • From our Style Edit, which style best describes you?

My personal style is definitely 'nautical'.
