A minute with Aristi Spyrou Actress


Where do you live?
Right now I live in Pareklisia village with my partner

What did you have for breakfast?
Unfortunately, coffee and a cigarette. Eating for me is a process you are forced to go through to have dessert. Usually, I crave dessert in the evening. So, I take my meals around then.

Describe your perfect day
At a big theme park with lots of rides and roller coasters (no queues, that is, not too crowded) and free

Best book ever read?
I don’t have a favourite book. I can tell you that Friedrich Nietzsche definitely played a decisive role in my life.

Best childhood memory?
Perhaps the moments when we were all relaxed and there were no distinct roles like mother-father-children. We used to hang out and have a lot of fun. I think these little moments are worth much more than a s summer trip.

What is always in your fridge?
Coconut milk and family ice cream in the summer.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
From psychedelic to Paola [Foka, Greek singer] …

What’s your spirit animal?
Cats. I feel like I’m acting a bit like a cat. I want my time and space.

What are you most proud of?
My perseverance. If I want something, I’ll get it no matter what. I have persistence and I persevere. But only in the things that interest me.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
The scene where the protagonist in La Vita è Bella was trying to be funny so his son, who was hiding in an outpost, wouldn’t know what was going to happen.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Janis Joplin!! To sing Piece of my Heart together in a car crying and drinking gin and tonic.

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
America in the 60s. But also in the future. Probably in the future… wherever.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing someone I love.

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
Keep going

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
My partner! Hahaha definitely perceptions and beliefs on social issues play a decisive role. I wouldn’t date a sexist or a misogynist.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would be with my family and my cats, dancing, laughing until we can’t anymore.

Next weekend Aristi will take part in Finally, Limassol is having Sex
