Regarding his role in The Crown and the scene that was cut, he said: "I played Yiannis Latsis, in a 5-minute scene. I was paid very well. I spent a week in Mallorca with an assistant because I don't know English well."

"Everyone was waiting for me. In the credits there is the name and the name of the role, which indicates that I have rights. I auditioned, I didn't get in like that. The art director from the Greek side took me and informed me that the scene was cut, they later explained the reason," he added.
