Stratos Tzortzoglou appeared for the first time in Karolos Koun’ Sound of the Gun by Loula Anagnostaki at Karolos Koun Art Theater. Apart from Karolos Koun, he has worked on stage with famed Greek directors Minos Volanakis, Jules Dassin, Spyros Evangelatos, Roula Pateraki, Andreas Voutsinas and Giannis Kokkos. In film he has worked with directors such as Theo Angelopoulos, Michael Cacoyannis, Pantelis Voulgaris, Eva Bergman and Bruno Coppola, and alongside such actresses as Catherine Deneuve, Irene Pappas, Lena Endre and Sarah Douglas. Last but not least he has had a long career as a TV actor, rendering him the most recognizable and beloved star of his generation in Greece. In 1994 he was named Best Actor at the Greek National Awards. Five times Academy Award nominee Michael Cacoyannis described him as “that rare phenomenon, a natural who combines striking good looks with that special brand of talent which blends a fiery temperament with easy personal charm,” while Palme d’ Or winner Theo Angelopoulos talked of him as someone who “can absorb everything, turning this to an advantage” and Ingmar Bergman compared him to a Stradivarius.
