Vassilis Logothetidis

Vassilis Logothetidis (1897-1960) was a Greek comedian.

Logothetidis was born in 1897 in Constantinople. One year after graduating from high school, in 1916, he started to participate as an amateur actor in local shows. In 1918, he moves to Athens where, one year later, he joins the Marika Kotopouli theater company, with which he remained until 1946 with a brief pause in 1935. From 1947, he played with his own company.

Through his very successful career, he starred in more than 110 Greek comedies and in more than 200 international plays, including "Arsenic and Old Lace" by Joseph Kesselring, "As You Like It" by William Shakespeare, "Volpone" by Ben Jonson and "Knock" by Jules Romains.

Logothetidis was among the first Greek actors to appear in film, mostly as a protagonist. His memorable roles include:

*Panagiotakis in "Madam Sousou" (1948)
*Thodoros Ginopoulos in "Oi Germanoi xanarhontai" (1948)
*Manolis Skoudris in "Ena votsalo sti limni" (1952)
