Meet Demetri York

Today we’d like to introduce you to Demetri York.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
When I was five years old, I was doing puppet shows with my sister for my parents. My sister had all the puppets so she only gave me a few lines so I had to put a lot of passion to show my parents that I can do funny voices too.

When I was 14 years old on a school trip I was sitting at the back ob the bus in the center seat like always, and like always I was making fun of all the teachers, and everybody was laughing very loud. So a teacher called me over but instead of punishing me she offered me the lead character to the high school theater play, and that’s where everything started.

After that play, I was the lead role for the next two high school plays. I started Improv classes for three years at Satiriko Theatro. When I was 17 years old, I got my first role in the Tv Series ‘Gia tin agapi sou.’ After that, I was in the Tv Series ‘7 ouranoi kai synnefa alites’ for two seasons and then the tv Series ‘Sasta Ji egirasin’ for 20 episodes.

I wrote, produced, directed and acted in a comedy show named Xelononistikakia. In 2016, I graduated with a full scholarship from Stella Adler Academy of acting. I was in many films that they went to many big festivals like palm springs and Cannes. ‘6 pm’ ‘please don’t call the cops’ ‘oh my dear darling’ ‘Red.’

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The road of an artist must be driven with a Jeep Wrangler. Especially for me that I am not from here. It took me a lot of time to understand where I am and how things are here.

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I am very serious when it comes to comedy.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success is when people enjoy what you enjoy to do, and your mom doesn’t count.
