In his last interview, which he gave to Maleviziotis in September 2023, Theodoros Katsadramis explained why he does not usually speak in public: "What should I do with interviews? The world has so many problems that Katsadrami's life is not that important. I gave you the interview and opened my home because you are quite discreet and kind. Besides, I don't know if I'll have time to give another one."
