Biography

Nikos Xanthopoulos is a Greek actor, known for his roles in the sixties era Greek Drama Cinema. He was also a famous singer of Greek folk bouzouki, having released many albums and singles. He is known as the "the child of the folk" (παιδί του λαού) mainly for his appeal in the lower working classes. He usually portrays a poor suffering man, hit hard by fate, seeking for justice or struggling against wealthy and evil men. In other cases, he is an immigrant in Germany working hard to feed his wife and kid or an unknown poor bouzouki player and singer working his way up to stardom. All those stereotyped roles helped him acquire a rockstar-like status in Greece, held to the late sixties - early seventies, in a difficult era for Greece (the dictatorship of the Junta).
Biography
Xanthopoulos was born in Athens, Greece in 1934. He was a stage actor from 1957 to 1963, but he soon devoted himself exclusively to cinema. His film debut was in 1958 with a small role in Η Ζωή Μου Αρχίζει Με Σένα (My Life Starts With You).
