A minute with … Nastazia Christodoulou, director of Karma, the TV show based on crimes that have happened in Cyprus


Where do you live and with whom?
I live in Nicosia with my Jaxxie, my sweet doggie.

What did you have for breakfast?
A protein shake

Describe your perfect day
Waking up on sunny day, eating a nice breakfast, going to the beach…listening to the sound of the waves, reading a book, drinking some wine and being surrounded from people you love. A day filled with positive energy.

Best book ever read? Why?
100 Years of Solitude. Because it is filled with deceptive treasures
Best childhood memory?
The weekends with grandmas and granddads.

What is always in your fridge?

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Mix Reggaeton.

What’s your spirit animal? And why
Wolf. I like being in a pack, but I also enjoy my alone time. And people tell me I have a great instinct and intuition. Also I always protect the people I love and care about.

What are you most proud of?
I am really proud of everything I managed to succeed in by myself, due to hard work and persistence. The pleasure and pride you feel when you reach your goals by working hard is very fulfilling.

What movie scene has really stayed with you? And why
The movie Awake, a psychological thriller that tells the story of a man undergoing heart surgery while experiencing a phenomenon called “anesthetic awareness” which leaves him awake but paralysed throughout the operation. So he can hear everything that is going on during the surgery only to realise the friends/doctors he trusted are not the same persons he knew when he was awake. I absolutely love psychological thrillers that can play with your mind.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
It would be both my granddads who have both passed away. I miss them so much. I would love to spend an evening with them, talking and laughing like we used to

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
To the 70s and 80s. I think it would be a great time to be around.

What is your greatest fear?

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
Smile and relax, don’t worry and don’t stress. You have a beautiful life ahead.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
Being a racists

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
All the things I postponed due to work, or lack of time, all the things I labelled as wrong timing. Now would be the time to do it all.
