Michael Constantine

Actor

Born - 22 May 1927, Reading, Pennsylvania

Tall, heftily-built, full-faced American actor with thinning hair. Of Greek parentage (born Constantine Ioannides), he was soon showing an aptitude for the theatre. He made his Broadway debut in 1955 after repertory experience, and began a long film and TV career a few years later: The Last Mile (1959), The Hustler (1961), Island of Love (1963), Quick, Before It Melts (1965), Beau Geste (1966), Hawaii (1966), In Enemy Country (1968), The Reivers (1969), Deadly Harvest (1972), Peeper (1975), Voyage of the Damned (1976), Hill's Angels (1979), Forty Days of Musa Dagh (1982), Pray for Death (1985), Prancer (1989), By a Thread (1990), Deadfall (1993), The Juror (1996), Thinner (1996) and countless TV movies. The best-remembered of his later roles was the patriarch in My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) and he reprised it in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016), his last film. He died from natural causes.
