The last goodbye to Erriko Andreou relatives and friends of the director, who passed away in the early hours of Saturday at the age of 84.
Absent from the ceremony was the director’s wife, Nora Valsami, as he faces severe mobility problems.
Errikos Andreou, father of Eric Andreou Jr., had been hospitalized since August in an Athens hospital with serious health problems.
He was born in Athens on December 15, 1938, but grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. There, he studied Art History and English Literature at an English-speaking university and continued his studies in screenwriting and directing at the Grand Academy of Cinema in Rome. Upon his return to Greece, he began working as an assistant director in international productions. From 1977 onwards he turned to television directing several successful series.
